CROCK POT CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP

Tuesday is the day where this sweet southern girl shares some of her favorite recipes.  Not only do I love to share recipes, I love to find them, try them and of course EAT them!  I also love my crock pot probably more than any kitchen utensil/item that I have!

This week's recipe was made for Miss Priss who loves Chicken Noodle Soup!  I snooped around on Pinterest and found a very easy crock pot recipe that is pretty much "set it and forget it".  I tweaked it a bit and voila, it was AMAZING!  It is so easy and so delicious.  I encourage you to try this recipe when you want something simple and comforting.  This is comfort food at its best!


What You Need:
  • 2-3 frozen chicken breasts
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cups chicken broth (I used bullion cubes and water to save on broth.  Follow recipe on bullion package to make broth)
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried marjoram or basil
  • 1 bay leaf 
  • 1  small onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped (I used a couple of handfuls of baby carrots and chopped them up)
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 6 ounces of no-yolk egg noodles (I actually found mine at the dollar store)


What You Do:

This is my favorite part...super duper easy...get ready for it...
  • Place everything but the egg noodles into the crock pot.  
  • Cook on low for 5 hours.
  • After 5 hours, pull chicken breasts and bay leaf out of the crock pot.  Discard bay leaf.  Shred chicken in another bowl.
  • Add egg noodles into crock pot and cook for another 1/2 hour on high
  • Add shredded chicken back into the crock pot.
  • Serve and be proud of your self that you didn't just pop open another can of Campbell's!


This recipe makes a ton of soup!  I had dinner for four as well as left overs for the next day.  I have made this twice and both times it has been a hit! 

I am sure you could also make this without the noodles and freeze it, then when ready to use pop it in the crock pot and thaw then cook the noodles for a half hour.  I will have to try that some time!

Do you have a favorite crock pot recipe?  Do you think this is something you would like to try?

  1. Girl, crock pot recipes are by far my fave, I even have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to them! I feel like they are so easy because you can just let them cook away. This recipe looks super yummy! My favorite recipe for the crock pot would be Beef & Broccoli.
