Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

Hello Again! 
Last week was the end of the semester at my school, it was a CRAZY busy time!  So glad that the week is over (and that I get today off!  Yay for catching up on chores, (and fingers crossed for some craft time!).  This week will be a busy one for me again, and I won't have much time for cooking.  The so-called polar vortex is supposed to reappaer for the majority of the week.  I am not a fan of high temperatures that start with a - sign.  That's too cold even for me!  
At the end of a long busy (cold!) day, I don't usually feel like cooking  But I do want a warm meal that will be hearty and delicious.  Enter CrockPot Chicken Noodle Soup.  Throw it in the crock pot in the morning, let it simmer all day while you are at work.  Add some noodles when you get home and you have a delicious healthy meal with very little effort on your part, and one that will warm you from the inside out.  Pair with some 30 minute rolls and you have a perfect meal with hardly any work on your part - Win!


Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup
Ingredients:
  • 2 lbs of chicken 
  • 1 lb carrots
  • 2 cups celery
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 6 cups of chicken broth (6 cups hot water plus 4 teaspoons chicken bullion)
  • 12 oz egg noodles (3/4 bag)

Directions:
Chop all of the vegetables and place in the crockpot.  Add the chicken on top.  If your chicken is frozen (or partially so) you can put it in whole.  Otherwise, cute into 1 inch chunks.  Pour broth over the top.  Turn crockpot on to low, and cook for 6-8 hours.  
Stir contents of crock pot.  If you placed the chicken in whole, use spoon or knife to break up the chicken into smaller pieces.  By this time, the chicken should be very tender and fall apart easily.
Add the egg noodles over the top and cook for an additional 30-60 minutes.  If needed, add some more water to the crock pot.  You want the noodles to be mostly submerged or they will get crunchy and burned instead of soft and cooked.
Once noodles have cooked, serve warm with a side of bread or rolls.  
Freeze any leftovers.

Enjoy!

  7. I am astonished to learn all the things that can be made in a slow cooker. I would never have thought one to be chicken noodle soup which, by the way, sounds delish to me right now.

  13. Homemade chicken noodle soup is one of my favs! Growing up my mom always boiled eggs and she would slice one in half and place it on top of the bowl of chicken noodle soup. It really is quite yummy. I still do it today. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
