When it comes to comfort foods this tried and true recipe has to be my absolute favorite. It’s cheesy and creamy and warm and gooey with chicken, peppers and the slightest hint of cumin. It’s a wonderful recipe that young and old will enjoy! Did I mention that its a crockpot recipe!
Whether you need a delicious meal for supper, or you need something for a buffet or a pot luck or maybe you just need that warm cozy feeling comfort food gives you. Cheesy Chicken Spaghettini is sure to please, not to mention 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts will feed the entire family.
You can also use regular spaghetti noodles but we prefer the sphaghettini noodle’s because they are a little thinner in size and taste amazing.
I use President’s choice they are made with 100% drum wheat semolina and to be quite honest these noodles are just about the only pasta I can eat without causing stomach issues they look like this:
They are available in Dominion and Superstores, you can find some more information on them here:
For time sake I did this recipe in a 2 part video tutorial you can watch it below recipe to follow:
Once your ingredients have been simmering away for a few hours you will need to remove the chicken like shown below:

For this tried and true recipe you will need the following ingredients:
- 1/2 of a red bell pepper
- 1/2 of a green pepper
- a small onion diced fine
- 1/2 tsp or a pinch more of cumin
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- about 3/4 box of cooked spaghettini noodles
- 3 cups of old or extra old cheddar cheese
- a few splashes of chicken stock or powdered bullion mixed with boiling water
- dried red chili flakes optional
How to Make this delicious comfort food.
Dice peppers and onion and add to your crockpot along with the can of cream of mushroom soup. ( I used Aylmers the quality is way better than Campbell’s in my opinion.)
Add your spices and 1 cup of the grated cheese. Mix to combine and place your uncooked chicken breasts on top.
Place lid and set your crockpot according to what time you’d like to have the dish ready. Keep in mind, the low setting will take a few hours longer than the high setting.
After a few hours remove the chicken breasts and shred with 2 forks you want the chicken chunky bit not too chunky as you want to ensure everyone has enough chicken on their plate.
After shredding, place the chicken back in the crockpot with the remaining 2 cups of cheese and the cooked spaghettini noodles. ( I only cook mine for about 5 minutes. they will continue to cook in the crockpot.)
Give it a little mix around and add a few splashes of chicken stock if desired and you can also use a few pinches of red chili flakes if you want a bit od heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Place the lid back on the crockpot and allow to cook for another 2-5 minutes and enjoy!
