Creamy Slow Cooker Chicken

Creamy slow cooker chicken with pasta in a serving bowl

Savory and full of flavor this super easy creamy slow cooker chicken is a perfect budget friendly meal the whole family will love. This is an easy dump and go recipe , the slow cooker does all of the work.  If you try just one of my recipes this is the one to try.  I mean who doesn’t love the zesty flavor of this wing sauce , incorporating this into a dish was the best thing I ever did. This is the perfect recipe for someone that thinks they can’t cook. If you know a college student or young couple ..bingo this is the recipe for them.


Commonly asked Questions :

Do I have to use Chicken Breast?

For this recipe I use chicken breast but a boneless skinless chicken thigh could be used as well. They just shred a little differently

Where do I get the wing sauce?

Most supermarkets have this wing sauce on their condiment aisle . I have bought it at Wal-Mart and Kroger or it can even be bought at the Buffalo Wild Wing restaurant. If all else fails look on Amazon .

Do I have to use the brand of sauce you used?

When testing this recipe I used the Kroger brand of this sauce and it was good. I have to admit the buffalo wild wing sauce was just a little bit better. Sweet Baby Rae’s makes a version of this sauce but I have never tried it .

Can I use the Instant Pot to make this recipe ?

When testing this recipe I did try this in the instant pot and it worked. Follow the directions just as I wrote them but instead of cooking 3-4 hours on high set your Instant Pot to 12 minutes .

What you will need for this recipe:

  • Slow cooker .. if you plan to cook this when you aren’t near I recommend a crock pot that shuts off like This 
  • tongs
  • Pot to Boil pasta
  • Colander to drain the Pasta
  • chicken breast
  • Garlic parmesan wing sauce- like this
  • milk
  • Minced onions
  • Cream cheese
  • Favorite Pasta

I made this over the weekend! This is very delicious, decadent, and has a nice kick to it! Next time I am going to make a nice healthy salad on the side to help cut down on the amount my husband and I eat! LOL!

I made this 3 days ago. It was so overwhelming with the whole bottle of sauce! I promise you – you only need 1/2 the sauce. Very rich but everything tasted the same. Couldn’t taste the chicken at all. Tasted like nothing but vinegar, creamy Italian dressing-ish.

If you’re referring to the Sweet Baby Rae’s “Chicken Dipping Sauce”, that’s more of a barbecue sauce. It’s REALLY good, and could probably be used in a recipe like this, but I doubt it would taste at all like what you have here (which also sounds amazing!)
