This creamy slow cooker chicken carbonara is so easy to prepare and get cooking. The end result tastes amazing and will please anyone who loves a good pasta.
One great thing about this dish is that you can feed quite a few people with it. One batch of this recipe will feed 4-6 people depending on if they’re big eaters or not. You can easily double the recipe if you need to feed more people.
This is certainly not a traditional carbonara but will still please anyone who loves creamy pasta they can cook in their slow cooker or crockpot. The rich creamy sauce will please anyone who loves a good pasta that’s packed full of flavour.
Depending on what you prefer you can cook the pasta separately or in the slow cooker. If you want to cook it in the slow cooker check out the cooking tips below as the cooking instructions will vary slightly.
Grated parmesan is the perfect way to finish this dish off! Just sprinkle some over the pasta once you have served it up. If you want, you can also mix 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese through the sauce for an incredibly tasty & cheesy pasta. If you’re looking for a side to go with this then some lovely garlic bread is always good with pasta.

You don’t have the fry the bacon off first but I highly recommend that you do so for the best taste and texture.
Don’t add the cream at the start as it may split and make the dish not as enjoyable.
