We’ve been feeling a little under the weather the last few weeks. Especially me. I blame the weather that keeps going back and forth between summer and winter and the exhaustion from juggling mom life, work life and our adoption home study. Which is almost completed, by the way (woohoo!). Nothing helps the winter blues (and the sniffles) like a little comfort food, so I whipped up this super easy chicken noodle soup in the slow cooker the other day. I picked up some wide Amish-made noodles that I think really makes the whole thing feel more satisfying. Liam loved the noodles, the veggies and, of course, the crackers we had on the side. Another great thing about this recipe is that it makes plenty of food. I suggest freezing half of it and saving it for another cold day this winter. I have the recipe posted below!
Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup
4 medium-sized carrots, peeled and sliced
2 stalks of celery, sliced
1 medium onion, diced
1 lb potatoes, quartered
2 cloves garlic, minced
1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
6 c. chicken stock
1 Tbsp. butter
8 oz. noodles, uncooked
salt and pepper to taste.
- Place the chicken on the bottom of your slow cooker and add the rest of the ingredients on top, except for the noodles.
- Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
- When chicken is cooked all the way through, remove from slow cooker. Shred, and then place back into the pot.
- Add the noodles to the pot and cook on high 5-10 minutes or until al dente.
- Serve with crackers or grilled cheese sandwiches.
Enjoy! Leave me a comment below and let me know how you liked the soup if you make it!
