  1. This looks great. I make chicken spagetti almost the same way but not in the crock pot. This looks so much easier. Do you ever have trouble with the noodles becoming mushy? That would be my only concern. Thanks for sharing.

      1. Melanie, will I place “uncooked” spaghetti in crock pot with the rest of the ingredients; and as Leah asked will it become mushy? Or is this the reason why it goes in “uncooked?” Or should I put it in an hour and a half before it’s done?

        1. I put my spaghetti in COOKED and it was fine, but like Carolyn did, putting it in just partially cooked, would work well too! My spaghetti didn’t end up mushy. Let me know how it goes!

          1. Melanie, do you drain any of the cans in the recipe first? If so, which ones? Thanks for your response! Can’t wait to make this!

  2. I showed this to my daughter yesterday and she made it last night. It was very good and my grandson loved it! Super easy! Thank you.

  3. No way?? Crockpot? YUMMY! It looks sooo good!!

    Thanks sooo much for partying with me! Can’t wait to see what you link up at The DIY Dreamer… From Dream To Reality tomorrow evening!

  4. Made this tonight yummy!! I just put the chicken in the crock pot then chopped up and returned the chicken to my crock pot! Noodles I did cook separate! So easy and yummy! Thanks for sharing

  5. Made this today for the first time and took it to a potluck lunch. Wonderful! I was worried about the spaghetti getting mushy, so I just partially cooked it and added it an hour into the crock pot time and it was perfect! Such a keeper and it will be a great comfort food this winter! Thank you for sharing this 🙂

  6. Since all of the ingredients are pre-cooked, I elected to drain the spaghetti and add the noodles, soups, mushrooms, tomatoes, chilies, onions back into the original noodle pot. I also added the cooked chicken that I melted velveeta back to the pot along with 1/2 cup of chicken broth. I turned the burner to a very low setting and stirred the ingredients a few times in a 30 minute period just to get everything heated through well. This allowed the noodles to absorb the other ingredients. This way I did not have to clean my crock pot too. Turned out great and my son loved it. Thanks for the recipe!

  7. I made this tonight with a few changes. I used a third of a can of crm of of mushroom soup and two cns of crm of chicken and threw in my diced chicken raw. i also used only 2/3 of a can of rotel and and omitted the mushrooms and and onions. Turned my crockpot on high and the kids and I went to a movie. Came home(the house smelled yummy). Threw in a single pack of velveeta cheese sauce and my noodles that I had cooked earlier for 5 minutes. left for another 10 minutes and topped with shredded cheddar. Very good! So there’s really no need to cook the chicken beforehand. Great recipe

  8. yum yum for dinner tonight! I substituted a can of hot rotel in place of tomatoes and chilies and added some bell peppers and omg its soo good!

    1. This tasted like a jar of salsa con queso poured over spaghetti. I love cheese, but this has too much Velveeta and was too heavy for adult tastes. My daughter liked it though.

      1. You could always adjust the amount of Velveeta and maybe even mix in some different shredded cheeses to balance out the Velveeta taste. There are so many ways you can adapt this recipe! If you try it a different way, I’d love to see the results and try them myself!

  9. Melanie, am trying this tonight, sounds great and easy. BTW, I buy my meats once a month. I buy my hamburger in bulk at Sam’s club, my boneless pork loin chops… buy one, get one at Winn Dixie, and my boneless skinlees chicken breasts also in bulk at Sam’s club. I do this at the beginning of every month. When I come home, I make enough hamburger patties for a couple of meals and cook the rest. I package the cooked hamburger in the pint sized freezer bags equal to about 1 pound (which is by and large what most recipes call for), then I’ve got cooked ground beef ready to go for spaghetti sauce, chili, sloppy Joe’s, soups, hamburger gravy, bbq cabbage, etc…you get the idea. If I’m planning to make meatloaf, stuffed peppers, stuffed cabbage, things requiring uncooked beef, I buy an extra package of hamburger and make those items up and freeze. I place the pork chops, hamburger patties and cleaned and trimmed chicken breasts each individually in the old fashioned fold over sandwich bags (they are really inexpensive) then bag each, pork chops, burgers, and chick breasts in their own gallon sized bag (I.e., pork chops one bag, hamburgers one bag and chick breasts one bag). Once frozen, just tap the frozen bag of individually packaged pieces of meat on a hard surface, it will completely break apart the pieces in the bag thus making it easy to remove however many number of pieces you may need. Reseal the large bag and return to freezer. Just passing on tips I used and found helpful years ago when working and raising a family. Following these easy tips help make meals easy and quick.

  10. Thank you for sharing this quick and easy recipe! I wanted to prepare something different, yet quick for my teenage boys this evening and I’m already done! YAYYYY! 🙂 I have the rest of the evening for other things. Thanks again.-Kinwana

  11. Most ppl use a crockpot b/c they work all day! If you’re going to cook everything 1st, just put it in a 9×13 and bake about 30 min.

  12. I just made this tonight. I haven’t eaten a bowl yet, but tasting it was really good! Instead of buying the cans of chili’s and tomatoes, etc I just bought a can of totel. I ended up adding a little more chicken and a little more water. Looks great, thank you!

  13. We made this yesterday and it was absolutely delicious! We wouldn’t change a thing about it. It will become a regular around our kitchen! THANKS!

    1. Diane,
      Ugh, I don’t know… It’s a large one. Big white oval one? Is that sad that I don’t know the size? Yeah, kinda…. I just plug it in and run so I’ve never checked the size… let me look at it and get back to you!
