This is a glorified version of Mac 'n cheese that takes it to the next level. It's fast to throw together and frees you up for the entire day to do your list of important things. Perfect for a family meal or when you want good leftovers to take for work lunches. It's also a great Fall or winter meal. This is true comfort food.

(You could also add a cup of frozen peas when you add the dry pasta, to give it a little color.)

How to Make Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken and Seashells

Step-by-Step

  1. Place chicken in slow cooker. Top with soups (no water), and add all of the spices. Add butter to pot then pour chicken broth into pot. (Do not use any salt because the soups and broth are just the right amount of saltiness for this dish.)

    (Pot will be very "soupy.")
  2. Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours OR on high for about 4 hours. Remove chicken and shred.
  3. Add shredded chicken back into pot along with the dry pasta and stir well. Cook about 45 minutes until done. Stir pot one or twice while pasta is cooking to help prevent it from sticking.
  4. When pasta is done, add the 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese and mix well and allow to melt and thicken up. Should only take about five minutes.
  5. Serve in bowls and garnish with a little shredded cheddar on top.

    Now enjoy that wonderful "comfort food" feeling you're about to be gifted with!
