What Ingredients Do I Need for Chicken Spaghetti
This recipe does not use cream of mushroom soup and just one small can of cream of chicken soup. It uses good ole cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and a little Rotel to flavor things up. In fact, I like to batch cook chicken and make this with leftover shredded chicken. Using leftover shredded chicken allows this recipe to come together quickly.

How to Make Chicken Spaghetti in the Crock Pot with Rotel
We love to make our chicken spaghetti with Rotel. It gives the recipe a little extra flavor and our family devours it. Couple the Rotel with Velveeta and cream cheese and you have a mouthwatering dinner the whole family enjoys.
If you are making chicken spaghetti using leftover chicken, this recipe will come together fast. I always save leftover chicken for recipes just like this.
- Prepare the slow cooker with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Add the shredded chicken, Rotel, butter, cream cheese, cream of chicken soup, cooked spaghetti noodles, cubed Velveeta cheese, and chicken broth to the Crock Pot.
- Cook on low for 2 hours until cheese is fully melted and serve when ready.
To cook this crockpot recipe with raw chicken, I do things a little differently.
- Prepare the Crock Pot with cooking spray. Line the bottom of the slow cooker with chicken breasts. Add chicken broth. Cover and cook on high for 2 ½ hours.
- Use two forks to shred the chicken. Add the cream cheese, butter, Velveeta cheese, Rotel, and cream of chicken soup. Cook on high for an additional hour, or on low for an additional cook time of 2 hours to allow the cheese to melt.
What Sides to Serve with Chicken Spaghetti
This cheesy chicken spaghetti is so delicious and filling you may choose to make it without any sides. It’s definitely a hearty meal all on its own. Here are a couple of my preferred side dishes to make with this recipe:
- Garlic Cheese Bread
- Italian Salad
