The most amazing part of this, and most slow-cooker recipes, is that everything chefs in the identical vessel — which includes the pasta. After the chicken is cooked, it took us a bit much less than 20 minutes till the noodles were al dente, however in our gradual-cooker chicken alfredo recipe, it changed into extra like 25 minutes. Moral of the story: Start checking after 15!
