CrockPot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti with Velveeta #VelveetaRecipes

CrockPot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti featuring Velveeta
Feeding a large family can be a bit tricky. Especially as the kids get older and develop more refined palates, it’s difficult coming up with recipes that the whole family will enjoy. Each of my granddaughters has gone through a stage where they didn’t want to eat meat, surviving on mostly salads for a while. Recently for a time both my son and grandson cut carbohydrates completely out of their diets. I never seem to know exactly who is eating what, but there are a few things I can always count on. I’m always sure to have some Velveeta on hand for whipping up family dinners and movie night snacks. Everyone in my house loves Velveeta. It’s a valuable ingredient in my kitchen… pure liquid gold. The other morning I fired up my trusty slow cooker and tossed in the ingredients for one of my family’s favorite meals — CrockPot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti featuring Velveeta.

I love cooking with my slow cooker, especially during the hot summer months when I’m trying to keep the kitchen cool. Most of my crockpot recipes use Velveeta cheese. It does such a wonderful job of binding everything together, and adds a deliciously rich, cheesy flavor.

Come on everyone, it’s chow time…

We’re missing a couple of people, but this is a typical Saturday night dinner for my family. After a morning of yard work and an afternoon in the pool, everyone is ready to sit down, relax and chow down.

The Recipe — CrockPot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti

3 pound package boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can 98% Fat Free cream of mushroom soup
1 can 98% Fat Free cream of chicken soup
16 oz. dry spaghetti, broken into pieces
1 lb. Velveeta Cheese, diced
1 can of petite diced tomatoes
1 4oz. can of green chilies
4 oz can mushroom stems & pieces, drained
½ cup water
1 small to medium onion, diced
salt & pepper to taste

1. Spray the slow cooker with vegetable spray. Place chicken breasts into bottom of the slow cooker, in an even layer. Empty contents of both cans of soup on top of chicken. Close lid and cook on low for 5 hours.

2. Remove lid and use 2 forks to shred chicken. Add remaining ingredients. Give it all a stir and close the lid. Continue to cook for 2-3 hours until pasta is tender, and Velveeta is melted. Give it a stir, serve, and enjoy.

It really is that simple, folks!

Wouldn’t you think everyone would be stuffed after that meal? Not my bunch of hungry growing tweens and teens, so Saturday family movie night wouldn’t be complete without Nachos. I usually buy the Velveeta 2 lb. loaf. It’s definitely the best value at my Walmart, and gives me plenty to use for both dinner and snack time. This past weekend, I used 1 pound of Velveeta in my Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti and the remainder for our movie night nachos. It was a cheesy weekend!

Pure liquid gold….

Velveeta Nachos

Movie night nachos couldn’t be any simpler… Dice it. Nuke it. Serve it.

  8. Michelle L. says

    We love this recipe and I made it last week, but not sure what I did wrong , because it turned out dry and mushy. I followed the steps in the recipe, but it didn’t look anything like the pic.

    • Angela says

      Oh no, we have made this countless times. Wondering if it has to do with the temp of your slow cooker – maybe it’s cooking hot? We recently had to get a new one for that reason. Perhaps, try keeping it on low and adding some additional water would do the trick.

  9. Carolann Leibenguth says

    Ok you had me at cheesy. I love to use the crock pot. There is nothing better than coming home after a long day at work and knowing dinner is done. I know my whole family will love this I mean come on what’s not to love? Pasta, mushrooms and Velveeta oh my.

  10. Sandra VanHoey says

    Isn’t everything so good with v elveeta? This loooks incredible, cheesy, creamy and so darn good

  11. Alyssa Dowdy says

    I’m wanting to make this tonight but forgot to thaw my chicken out. Can you put the chicken in frozen?

    • Angela says

      It would probably work, Alyssa. But I’m honestly not sure if it is safe to put frozen meat in the crock pot. Maybe try thawing some in the microwave or water first?

  12. Bonnie says

    What size is your crockpot? Mine is a 3 quart, and this recipe looks like it would be too much to fit. I’d love to make it. Sure looks divine!
