Slow Cooker Italian Chicken with Pasta

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken with Pasta can be started in just minutes before running errands.
Slow Cooker Italian Chicken with Pasta from is a quick and delicious supper.

It’s Secret Recipe Club time again. This month I saw assigned Edesia’s Notebook which is written by Lesa. Lesa cooks simple recipes that don’t take forever making them perfect for busy Moms and Dads.

This was another month when I had the hardest time deciding what to make. I’ve bookmarked her Slow Cooker A1 and Dijon Pork Chops or Steak because my nephew loves all the ingredients. I also want to make her Beef and Cabbage Pockets and the Cheesy Chipotle Beef and Noodle Bake.

I decided to make the Slow Cooker Italian Chicken and Vermicelli  because I had everything but the marinade on hand and I’m all about slow cooker recipes.

Unfortunately the marinade Lesa used is either no longer made or my local stores don’t carry it. So I made my slow cooker Italian chicken with a garlic and herb marinade. Even with the change I think the recipe turned out deliciously.
