Crockpot Pesto Mozzarella Chicken Pasta

We are a pasta loving family. Pasta is one of the few things I can make that I know every single person in this house will eat without complaint. I really should just do a steady rotation of pasta and different sauces and save myself a lot of meal planning time. Ha! This dinner is one of our favorites. It’s easy, fast, and cheap. And the kids love it so much! I double this recipe sometimes so we can have enough for all the kids to take for lunch the next day.


2 frozen chicken breasts
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup pesto sauce
1/4 cup butter or margarine
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1 box pasta noodles
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Add chicken to crockpot and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2. Pour pesto sauce over top.
3. Add lemon juice.
4. Cut butter into slices and lay over top.
5. Cook on High for 4 hours.
6. Shred chicken, add cooked noodles and Parmesan cheese; stir.
7. Top with mozzarella cheese.
8. Continue cooking until cheese melts.

This is definitely one of those recipes that I could make every week and nobody in my house would complain! I love pasta recipes that I can throw together and make everyone happy.
