  • Put your cubed cream cheese in the broth left in your crock pot and stir until your cream cheese is melted and well combined with the broth
  • Add in your cooked noodles and your shredded chicken and gently stir until well combined
  • Leaving your lid off, let your Crock Pot Creamy Italian Chicken Noodles stand for approximately 15 minutes until it is thick and creamy.

Notes

  • I used my West Bend 6-Quart Round Slow Cooker for this one. I don't use it often, but it worked out pretty well for this recipe. I used Cris' trick with water and a smaller baking dish to cook the chicken, then when I added the noodles, I used the regular crock. It worked perfectly!
  • Recipe from Gooseberry Patch's Busy-Day Slow Cooking.
  • If you ever want to treat a friend, this is the recipe to make them. A friend of mine tried these out and was quite impressed with the yumminess of these Crock Pot Creamy Italian Noodles.
  • I would highly recommend making a double batch of these noodles, or you may be like me and a little sad to see the leftovers all gone VERY quickly!
  • As with any of our recipes, 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.
