Ingredients

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken cut into bite size pieces
  • 14.5 oz can of carrots drained
  • 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes undrained
  • 24 oz jar of spaghetti sauce
  • 16 oz box of rotini or penne cooked al dente
  • 2 cups fresh shredded parmesan
  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs

Instructions

  • Put a large pot of water on to boil. Add your noodles to the boiling water and cook until the noodles are al dente.
  • While your noodles are cooking, cut your chicken into bite size pieces.
  • Mix together your chicken, drained carrots, undrained tomatoes and spaghetti sauce in a large bowl.
  • Drain your al dente noodles and stir into your chicken mixture until everything is mixed up well.
  • Pour everything into a lightly greased casserole crock or 6-quart crock pot spreading it out evenly.  
  • Sprinkle have of your freshly shredded Parmesan evenly on top, followed by your Italian bread crumbs and the rest of your freshly shredded Parmesan.
  • Cover and cook on low for 4 hours, turning halfway through cooking if your crock pot does not cook evenly.

Notes

  • I used penne pasta because that was all that my store had. However, I wanted to use rotini, so either one will work. 
  • If you need something to shred your parmesan cheese, I HIGHLY recommend this Rotary Cheese Grater. It is awesome! 
  • As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
