Ingredients

  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. dried leaf oregano
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 small white onion diced

Add at the end:

  • 1 lb. fettuccine noodles cooked according to package directions
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ¾ cup parmesan cheese divided

Instructions

  • Add the chicken broth to the slow cooker, add the cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, red pepper flakes, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir.
  • Add the chicken breasts and flip them around in the seasoned chicken broth to get the seasonings on the chicken.
  • Sprinkle the onions over the chicken and broth.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.
  • After the cooking time is done, add the heavy cream and shred the chicken with 2 forks right in the slow cooker.
  • Add the cooked and drained pasta and a ½ cup of the Parmesan cheese. Stir.
  • Sprinkle over the remaining parmesan cheese. I added a touch more paprika and also parsley flakes to the top of my pasta to make it look pretty. Cover and cook for 20 more minutes. Cooking for a bit longer helps the sauce thicken from the gluten in the pasta.
  • Serve and enjoy!
