CROCKPOT CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP RECIPE
I love slow cooker chicken recipes for their simple, quick and easy to make qualities. Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup is as easy as they come. Simply chop up your veggies, add some chicken breasts, seasonings and broth, then set it and forget it!
HOW TO MAKE SLOW COOKER CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP
- Add boneless, skinless chicken breasts to the slow cooker along with carrots, onion, celery, garlic and seasonings. Set the slow cooker to low.
- After about 6-7 hours on low (or 5 hours on high) your chicken should be cooked through and the soup should be hot and steamy. Remove the chicken breasts to a cutting board, then either chop the chicken into cubes or shred into chunks. My family tends to never be able to agree on the best way to cut chicken for chicken noodle soup, so the cubes or shredded chunks pretty much depend on the cook!
- Whichever way you happen to like to cut your chicken, toss it back into the crockpot and add the noodles. You’ll want to make sure to set a timer for this and only cook the soup with the noodles for 15-20 minutes. Any longer and the noodles can overcook. If you like, you can cook the noodles separately and not have to worry about overcooking, but that does require a little more effort.
- Once the noodles are cooked, stir in some fresh parsley and ladle the soup into bowls.
WHY IS CROCKPOT CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP GOOD FOR YOU?
There really is nothing more comforting than homemade chicken noodle soup. It cures the common cold – the warm broth soothes a sore throat and the anti-inflammatory properties in the broth have been known to reduce congestion. Plus it just makes you feel GOOD.
Chicken broth is naturally low in calories and easy to digest, plus it’s nutritious and the added chicken provides a good dose of protein.
