Listen, sometimes you just want to dump some chicken in a pot and throw some sauce on top of it. That’s great, and those meals are usually ones the kids and grown-ups will both enjoy, but the problem is, those dishes are often not very visually appealing.
Not this Crock Pot Chicken Broccoli Alfredo, though. It’s pretty and it’s really a perfect meal for those who don’t have time to “make” dinner in the morning. Between throwing together lunches, reminding kids to grab their library books, and feeding the dog; mornings can be wild. I
This meal can be prepared in the time it takes your kids to brush their teeth, and it tastes great. True story.
I used my 6.5-Quart Crock-Pot Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker to make this Crock Pot Chicken Broccoli Alfredo.
CROCK POT CHICKEN BROCCOLI ALFREDO
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 jars Alfredo sauce
1 (12 ounce) bag frozen broccoli cuts
1/2 pound bow-tie pasta, cooked
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, for garnish
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan, for garnish
Place chicken in Crock Pot, and add salt and pepper.
Dump sauce on top of chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
Add broccoli, cover again, and cook for 1 more hour.
Toss with cooked pasta, and top with Parmesan and parsley.
I used frozen chicken breasts and cooked on low for 6 hours. It was the easiest recipe we’ve had…. Maybe! I used a jar of Alfredo and about a tablespoon of parsley. I thought it needed garlic. Next time I will add more seasonings or maybe just an additional Alfredo seasoning packet! With the ease of this recipe and the quick ingredients, I can’t see not making this again!
This was very easy and quick. I used 3 frozen chicken breasts, 2 jars of alfredo sauce, and some Mrs. Dash. I cooked it on low for 7 hours, with the frozen broccoli added the last hour. It was a yummy dinner served over pasta. I also added black pepper to the finished sauce.
What’s not to like? This is crazy easy, and we all love Alfredo. We’ll make this again for sure. I used fresh broccoli, and it needed a little longer cook time than frozen, but I planned for that and it was perfect.

Get OUT!!!! I can’t believe what I’m reading!! Just last night I was telling my husband that my mom had a chicken/broccoli/noodle thing she used to make that our whole family would love and I had to get the recipe. AND NOW I SEE THIS AND IT’S PERFECT!!! I can hardly wait to make it. Squee!! –Lisa
this recipe is great! It makes a ton and it tasted amazing. I didn’t bother using the parsley, but I didn’t buy some generic Parmesan cheese to top it with and it tasted great! The entire recipe only took about 5 1/2 hours and the broccoli only took about 30 minutes to cook.
Do you thaw the frozen chicken first?
I used thawed chicken was worried if it was frozen the Alfredo sauce would be runny
Can you freeze this dish?
Has anyone only used 1 jar of alfredo sauce?
Would egg noodles or small shell noodles work plan on making tomorrow have everything but the bow tie noodles…any suggestions if those others would be just as good…thanks
This was delicious. ..I used cream of mushroom soup instead of Alfredo sauce.yum!!!
Oh, good idea! Thanks for sharing your changes, and I’m so glad you liked it!
I made this last week and it was delicious. I added whole mushrooms in and it was amazing. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting!
Oooh, mushrooms! Great idea. Thanks, Brandon!
Do you cook this with the chick frozen?
I am newly married and I am not the greatest at cooking. I made this easy meal it came out really good. I can’t wait for my husband to come home and be surprise I cooked! Thank you
Can I cook it on high instead of low? & if so for how long
I just did this on high in less than three hours, but the creamy alfredo sauce will burn to the sides of the crock pot if you dont scrape it down occasionally. Just put the brocolli in. Smells good!!
Can I use canned chicken instead of frozen chicken breasts
How many calories are in this dish?
How long do you cook it for if the chicken is not frozen?
This is one of the best and easiest crockpot meals. I grated a block of fresh parmasan cheese and topped with red Pepper. Soooooo good
How many servings does this make?
How much longer does fresh broccoli take vs frozen? Thanks!
Can you cook the noodles in the crock pot as well? If so, do you add them at the same time as the broccoli or noodles then broccoli? I have successfully cooked noodles in the crock pot in the past, they just take a little longer than stovetop.
If you want to cook the noodles in the crock pot, check on the liquid level first, if needed add some cream/half & half/broth, let that get hot. Add noodles and stir. Noodles can cook in 30 to 60 minutes. Add broccoli on top of the stirred noodle mixture. Hope that helps.
