Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

by Alli

During this time of the year, my family can’t get enough of my Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup. If you ever take one bite, you’ll never want to eat canned chicken noodle soup again. I promise!

Whenever I make my homemade chicken noodle soup, my husband always makes a remark about how good it is. He always hopes we have leftovers so he can enjoy it for lunch the next day.

Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup

This past Sunday, I threw all the ingredients (except the egg noodles) in the slow cooker before I left for church. Afterwards, while the noodles were cooking, I shredded the chicken in the slow cooker. I added the cooked noodles to the soup, gave it a quick stir and let the soup hang out while I made toasted Pimento Cheese Sliders. I use Hawaiian rolls for these sliders.

My Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup is perfect for a light lunch or dinner. Just add a salad and crackers or a roll. This is also a great soup to make for people who are fighting a cold or flu.

You can use chicken breasts or thighs for this recipe or a combination of both. I buy the boneless, skinless chicken so when it’s time to add the noodles at the end, all I have to do is take two forks and shred the chicken. There are no bones or fat to remove.

Combine chicken, seasonings, celery, onion, and carrots in a slow cooker. Add chicken broth. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.

When the soup is done, prepare egg noodles according to the package direction. Shred chicken and stir in noodles.

We love chicken noodle soup when we are sick. I am going to try your recipe the next time we are under the weather – it really does sound comforting.

I’ve been looking for a go-to chicken soup recipe. This looks like a great one to try. Easy and simple! We love using a whole chicken but we are also big fans of thigh meat. Can’t wait to try it.

Nothing like a pot full of chicken noodle soup. I have started canning my chicken soup. All I have to do is pour it into the crockpot. Make up some noodles and add them. Walk away.

I will be making this soon. Maybe this weekend, because we have another cold front coming in. I always love soup when it’s cold.

I love soups even more when it has chicken in the middle. Great Alli recipe.

One of my favourite soups ever and I just bought a slow cooker before Christmas. So far I have only cooked vegetable soup in it but this soup sounds really tasty and filling too so I am going to give this a go over the weekend.

I love Chicken noodle soup, it is a great classic! We have been dealing with sickness here, all of us at some point in the past week have been sick with a cold, so a lot of comfort foods and easy meals like this have been our go-to all week.

Chicken noodle soup has always been one of my favorites, particularly if it’s creamy. There’s just something so warming and comforting about it.

A classic favorite that reminds me of my childhood! I think this one’s a keeper. It’s always the best way to make you feel warm and cozy during a cold winter night.

I love chicken noodle soup. It is such a comforting, classic food for when you are feeling under the weather.

That’s a perfect recipe for the time of year! Like the addition of chewy egg noodles and the minced garlic is key.

Mimi Green February 8, 2018 - 11:21 pm

Chicken soup is so classic, that you can’t go wrong. With the flu season running rampant this is a must.

I love making chicken noodle soup from scratch but I have never made it in a slow cooker before. Will definitely try out your recipe this winter–perfect way to get through our current blizzard!

These are some really good soup recipes. I found the sweet potato and vegetable soup something we would all like in our house.

Home made chicken soup is good for what ails us. It’s always a delicious choice for colds and more.
