Slow Cooker Chicken Tetrazzini

Remember that chicken tetrazzini recipe that your mom used to make when you were a kid? Well, Cheesy Slow Cooker Chicken Tetrazzini is even better! Just throw the ingredients together and let it simmer in the slow cooker. You only need to spend ten minutes in the kitchen to prepare this delectable dish. The combination of pasta, chicken, and cheese makes this slow cooker chicken recipe a hearty must-have meal. Your family will beg for this amazing dinner recipe week after week.


When I was growing up my mom would make a casserole called Chicken Tetrazzini all the time. It had spaghetti noodles, chicken, celery, mushrooms and cheese. When I went away to college, I typed up all of my mom's recipes that I liked and put them in a little folder. Chicken tetrazzini was one of them. After I got married, my husband often requested this recipe but it had so many steps and pots that I didn't like to make it very often. Now things have changed! I'm am so happy to report that I figured out a way to make this comforting casserole in one pot!

Yum! Last week I find a chicken tetrazzini recipe for the oven and now one for the slow cooker. I have never seen it made with cheddar, just with Parmesan cheese. This will be ready in 90 minutes so if you are looking for a recipe to stick in the slow cooker while you are gone all day, this is not it.
