Recipe: Crockpot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti

The crockpot has been getting quite the workout in our house lately. It's on the counter just about every other day with either a new recipe in it or a tried and true one {sausage dip, anyone?}
My mom came across a few new recipes for us to try out and two of them ended up being absolutely fantastic and the other let me know that I am not a fan of smoked paprika. Ew. But my favorite of the two was the Crockpot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti.
It's got pasta, cheese, and all other sorts of deliciousness in it. I'll go ahead and tell you that this probably {ok isn't} the most healthy recipe out there but on a cool fall night? It's the perfect recipe.

Crockpot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti
{original recipe can be found here}
1 lb chicken {2 chicken breasts}
1 can cream of chicken
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 can diced green chiles
1/2 cup onion, diced
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
3 cups of cheese, shredded
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
crushed red pepper, to taste
1 can of chicken broth {as needed, but I used the whole thing}
1 pkg spaghetti noodles, cooked
1. Add cream of chicken, bell pepper, red pepper, diced green chiles, onion, 1 cup of cheese, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper to crockpot. Stir well.
2. Place chicken in crockpot and set the crockpot to high for 3-4 hours until chicken is cooked.
3. Pull chicken out of crockpot, shred, and return to crockpot along with spaghetti noodles. Add in additional chicken broth as necessary to get the consistency that you prefer.
4. Cook for an additional 30 minutes on low.
5. Enjoy!

I'd show you a picture of the final product in a bowl or something, but to be honest, as soon as this was done it was scooped out and put into a casserole dish for Patrick to pick up for dinner. What didn't fit in the casserole dish... I ate straight out of the crockpot. Yup. That good. Didn't even bother with the bowl.

I'm only wishing that I had saved a little bit more for myself and not given the entire thing to Patrick... guess I'll be making this recipe again soon!
