This AIP Crock Pot Butternut Squash Chicken & Pasta is a quick and easy weeknight meal. The perfect nightshade-free and dairy-free pasta dish!

I love a good dump-and-go AIP slow cooker meal. Honestly, without my Crock Pot and my Instant Pot, I’m not sure how I’d get dinner on the table every night. I love the simplicity of just tossing everything into the slow cooker, setting it and walking away until it’s dinner time. Plus, a delicious meal that takes just five minutes of hands-on time is this lazy cook’s dream!

Not only is this AIP Crock Pot Butternut Squash Chicken & Pasta super easy to make, it’s also the perfect AIP comfort food. Savory, nutty flavors combine with a tiny bit of a kick from the garlic and onion for a cozy AIP pasta dish that makes a cold, blistery winter night not seem so bad, after all.

Let’s make AIP Crock Pot Butternut Squash Chicken & Pasta

Just eight simple ingredients is all you need for this cozy AIP comfort food.

  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 15 oz can butternut squash puree
  • 1 cup bone broth or water
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt (plus more to taste)
  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken thighs or breasts
  • 8oz box cassava fusilli

First, prep your ingredients. Then, add the diced onion, minced garlic, butternut squash, bone broth and seasonings to the bowl of your crockpot and give it a stir to incorporate. Then nestle in the chicken. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.

Just before the chicken is finished, cook the cassava fusilli according to the package directions.

When the crockpot cooking cycle is complete, shred the chicken with two forks (I just do this right in the crockpot). Stir to combine. Serve the Butternut Squash Chicken on top of the cassava fusilli and add sea salt to taste.

For a well-rounded meal, serve this Crock Pot Butternut Squash Chicken and Pasta alongside a fresh side salad.

If you have any leftovers, store the cooked chicken and the pasta separately, in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 3 days. If you store them together, the cassava pasta will continue to absorb the juices from the Butternut Squash Chicken and get soggy. No one wants soggy noodles.
