I have been looking forever for new soft foods for my kid with braces to try and this looks delicious! I will have to make some of this to try!
It’s pretty darn good Stephanie! I hope you’ll come back and let me know what your family thinks of the recipe!
I love chicken fajitas and I love pasta… not sure why I never thought to combine the two (and in a crockpot)! Thanks for sharing!
Abby you’ve got to try this recipe. Be sure to come back and let me know what your family thought of it!
This looks totally yummy and doable (even for me lol)
Thank you for sharing your recipe with us on the Brag About It Link Party!
Always love a new crockpot recipe to try. Thanks for sharing on the Home Matters Party! Awesome blog, new fan here.
Thanks so much Allie!
This pasta look so incredibly creamy! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!”
We aren’t a mushroom family, do you think cream of chicken soup would work?? 🙂
Hey Kristin – So my family don’t like mushrooms either! However, they do eat the cream of mushroom soup. You can’t really even taste the mushrooms 😉 Let me know if you end up making this Crock Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta recipe. It’s pretty amazing and willing to bet one that’ll be on your radar! Talk soon 😉
I just made this and it’s delicious! I’m making it again this weekend for friends who just welcomed their 3rd baby. I substituted gemelli pasta. One question – when do you add the tomatoes? At the beginning? And do you drain them? I added undrained at the beginning, but then skipped the chicken broth later on.
Hi Bonnie! I’m sure your friends will love this recipe. What a great friend you are! I just updated the recipe and Thank You for calling me out on that 😉 I add the tomatoes when I add the spaghetti otherwise they sorta break up and disappear! I also drain the tomatoes. Talk soon!
What size crock pot?
Hi Skye – I have a 6 qt., but, I’m pretty sure any size Crock Pot should do! https://amzn.to/20zn1X8 — This is a similar one to what I have!
Made this tonight! OMG – delish! Only change I made was I used a can of mush and a can of cream of chicken cause it’s all I had! And I added mushrooms! Sooooo yummy!
Mmmm….sounds delicious Amanda! I hope you’ll stop back by and find some other recipes to recreate in your home! I look forward to seeing you on the Facebook page (https://facebook.com/myheavenlyrecipes) as well!
I only have cream of chicken. Will that work instead of cream of mushroom?
Yes Kandie you sure can! Let me know how it turns out.

This looks yummy, and I like that it doesn’t use Velveeta like other similar recipes I’ve seen. 5-6 chicken breasts seems like a lot though–about how many pounds would you say you used? Thanks! Can’t wait to try this!
Hi Barb! You can totally half this recipe if needed for a smaller family. I made this for my family of 5 (2 kids 4 and under) and it was plenty for us. I also like a little leftover for lunches the next day 😉 Thank you for stopping by!
Barb A. says
Thanks for your quick reply! I was actually thinking of the chicken to noodles ratio though, and not the recipe as a whole. I’m thinking of using just 3 or 4 chicken breasts when I make this later today. One more question–what size can of tomatoes do you use? Thanks again!
Sorry Barb I just now saw this. I typically use a 14 oz. can of Tomatoes, but, again, whatever you have on hand. There’s no right or wrong here. Please let me know how it turns out.
Barb A. says
No problem! I made this on Sunday and used 4 chicken breasts, a 14.5 oz can of tomatoes (I guessed right, lol!) and half of my 2 lb box of spaghetti noodles (I wasn’t sure what size box, and figured I’d rather start with less and add more if necessary.) It turned out great! The only thing I’d do differently next time is use my 6 qt crockpot rather than the 4 qt. I had to be VERY careful mixing it all together at the end so I didn’t overflow my 4qt crock. Thanks for the great recipe and for being so quick to answer questions! My husband has already asked me a couple of times if I’ve saved this recipe for the future, so I guess it was a hit!
Just saw the crock pot chicken fajita recipe and started drooling!! Being inconveniently located my rule about food is if I don’t have an ingredient I sub whatever is in the pantry or fridge, same for things we don’t eat. I use cream of ‘shrooms with roasted garlic soup (Campbell’s) and it wakes up blah foods.
Should I use two of the 400g cans of regular cream of mushroom soup like Heinz or two of the small cans of condensed cream of mushroom soup like Campbell’s? Thanks
