Nothing says comfort food more than a piping hot bowl of Crock-Pot Chicken Noodle Soup. Rich broth is simmered away all day with chunks of chicken and hearty vegetables and then at the end thick noodles are added to make the perfect bowl of chicken and noodle soup that you will ever eat!

Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

One of the things my kids love that I make the most is Chicken Noodle Soup. I like to make a huge batch of it (this recipe serves 12) and then we eat it for days for lunches or whenever hunger strikes.

There really is nothing better on a cold day than a bowl of hot chicken & noodle soup. And if you are sick or otherwise feeling under the weather it really does hit the spot and make you feel better.

I often times will put together freezer containers of soup and deliver to friends and family who are sick and then they can eat up the soup on the stove or in the microwave. It is always ahit and I am asked for the recipe.

This recipe calls for just a few simple ingredients such as chicken broth (you can use store bought or homemade), chicken (I use breast meat but you can use thighs or any combination of white and dark meat if you like), the trinity in cooking (carrots, onion and celery) a little garlic and spices and then the noodles. I use homestyle noodles such as Reames brand which can be found in the frozen food section of most major grocery stores. If you cannot find frozen noodles you are welcome to use dried homestyle noodles or egg noodles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Add The Frozen Noodles At The Beginning With The Rest Of The Ingredients?

For best results it is best to add the noodles near the end of the cooking time per the recipe instructions. The reason for this is because the noodles will be too mushy if they are cooked for too long and they will absorb too much of the broth from the chicken noodle soup.

Can I Use Other Cuts Of Chicken Besides Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts?

You can use just about any other cut of chicken such as thighs, drumsticks or leg quarters. For best results however it is best to remove the skin from whatever chicken parts you are using otherwise your chicken noodle soup will be too fatty.

Can This Recipe Be Cooked Ahead Of Time?

I have found that the noodles tend to get a little bit mushy and absorb a lot of the broth from the soup when you cook this soup ahead of time. But I actually don’t mind it at all and I often make up a batch of this soup, portion it out into meal prep bowls and stash in the refrigerator so that I have homemade chicken noodle soup that I can reheat for lunches.

What Other Types Of Noodles Can I Use If I Cannot Find The Homestyle Noodles?

The type of noodles I prefer to use are thick egg noodles that are found in the freezer section of the grocery store. If you cannot find these frozen noodles you can easily substitute dried egg noodles (found in the pasta aisle) or even broken up spaghetti or angel hair pasta (thanks to a reader for that suggestion!). If you are feeling really adventurous you can even make your own homemade egg noodles!
