This 5 Ingredient Crock Pot Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta is the perfect comfort food that the whole family will love. The Garlic Parmesan Sauce paired with the creamy cheesy sauce come together to make the easiest and most epic pasta ever!
There are two things I love cheese and garlic. I can’t get enough of either and anytime there is an option to put them together I’m sold. This recipe marries the zesty garlic parmesan sauce with cream cheese and a little more parmesan to make a winning combination.
After many readers have told me they were surprised by the spiciness of the sauce I wanted to make a note in the very beginning letting you know this sauce does have a little spice and kick to it! I didn’t think it was spicy but if you are sensitive to heat cut the sauce in half.

Quick Dinner – Crock Pot Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta
I’m always on the lookout for a simple recipe that is tasty and quick to prepare. But sometimes when you do recipes that are quick they lack in flavor and depth but this chicken is delicious, tender and filled with so many flavors. Another delicious garlic chicken recipe to try that is easy is my one pot Garlic Butter Chicken. Like I said I love garlic!
Gluten Free Garlic Parmesan Sauce
The secret ingredient to this meal is the garlic parmesan sauce which is made by Buffalo Wild Wings and is used on their delectable wings. I just used it on chicken breasts instead. You can buy it on Amazon or Wal Mart, or Target. I did see that my grocery store also had a Garlic Parmesan Sauce in the salad dressing aisle so I’m sure you could easily swap that for this BDubs (Nickname for Buffalo Wild Wings) Sauce but I’m not certain it will be gluten free so please make sure and check the label for gluten. You could always make your own sauce and I found this recipe at The Spruce Eats.
Other Sauce Options that Readers have tried-
Great Value Garlic Parmesan Sauce– This is the Walmart version of the sauce. It is even spicer that the Buffalo Wild Wings Sauce.
Crock Pot Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta- Low Carb and Keto
This recipe is a great low carb and keto choice. The sauce is filled with flavors from cheesy goodness and only has one gram of added sugar. I was so happy to find this low carb sauce because I feel like it’s very hard to find packaged sauces that are low carb. They are usually packed with sugar. I served this over zoodles for my low carb hubby and he loved it. We have this zoodle maker which we use all the time. Or you can even buy zoodles at most grocery stores now in the produce department.

I make everything gluten free in our house because my husband has celiac disease, which is when you are allergic to gluten. Our favorite pasta is the Gluten Free Barillla Pasta line. I find that it is the best one at staying together while cooking and the taste is just like real pasta. I used the Barilla Gluten Free Rotini for this recipe.
