Prepare the Ingredients
Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into ¼" slices.
Pat chicken breasts dry.
Start the Meal
Place slow cooker liner in slow cooker, if desired. Fold top edges in before putting on lid.
In a clean slow cooker, add onion, ⅓ cup water, chicken base, marinara sauce, ½ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper. Top with chicken.
Turn slow cooker on to high heat. Cover, and cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4 hours.
Cook the Pasta
After 3½ hours, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.
While water is coming to a boil, stir sun-dried tomatoes, cream cheese, and peas into slow cooker.
Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 10-12 minutes.
Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside.
Finish the Dish
After 4 hours, shred chicken in slow cooker. Stir in pasta, butter, and half the Parmesan. If too thick, add pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping with remaining Parmesan. Bon appétit!
