Hey guys it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb!! Are you enjoying spring? It’s been pretty wet and dreary around here. We got a couple weeks at the beginning of March with gorgeous sunny 70 degree weather and then it evaporated into April showers. I’ll take it over the snow any day though! And rain or shine, a good crockpot dinner is always a good idea.

  • Whisk together flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Dredge chicken in the flour mixture to coat on both sides.

  1. The best way is to buy the pasta already nearly cooked in the deli area. I did linguini and it cooked fine in the crockpot! I did add mushrooms and capers too! Fab recipe!

  2. What is the proper way to reheat this dish? Also, any additional suggestions on the noodles based on earlier comments? Thanks, Kerry

    1. For the chicken I like to use a pan on top of the stove or in the oven. A microwave for the noodles and chicken work well too.

  3. I am sorry, perhaps I read too quickly, but I missed the part regarding the capers. When do you add them in? During the cooking of the chicken or at the end. I am a little confuse. Otherwise, this looks like a fab recipe that I cannot wait to try. Thank you for your time and clarification.

    1. The capers are optional. If you are wanting them, you will add them at the end. Hope that helps! Thanks for following along with me! XOXO

    We enjoyed this very much ! My husband said it’s a keeper ! I used Angel hair spaghetti, and heated the broth up.

  5. Silly Question but there is a ton of liquid left over from the pasta. I’m supposed to drain that before I put the chicken back in right?

  6. How long after I put this on high do I add the noodles? I’m using low carb angel hair. Dreamfields brand? I have the chicken in and put the capers in early by accident. But I love capers so I think it will be fine.

      I also had an issue with the cooking time for the noodles. I figured 30 mins would be enough considering the time given was 15. I think next time I will cook them as usual and then add to the crockpot.

  7. I have a silly question. Was I supposed to cook the noodles before putting them in the crock pot?

    1. It does seem as though they do need to be cooked ahead of time; however, this recipe cooks the noodles in the crockpot! It is AMAZING! I just love it! Throw it ALL in and let the crockpot do the work! Hope that helps!

    2. I noticed that 15 minutes for the noodles plus the additional 10 minutes in the sauce is not enough time for the noodles to cook. They are still hard even cooking on high. 35 to 40 minutes if you use uncooked noodles

    1. At this time I do not have any nutritional information on my recipes. I do recommend using or an app similar to that and it will direct you to the information that you are seeking. Hope that helps!

    This sounds so good, I love a dish with lemon and capers and I thought I would try this out tonight. The chicken has been in the cooker for a few hours and Im getting everything else ready for it now and I didnt see where it said to add the capers?

    1. When you are ready to serve, add the capers over top, and ENJOY! Thanks so much for following along with me! 🙂
