I can’t believe I haven’t shared our FAVORITE Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup with you yet. I was planning on making it for the family for dinner and went to pull it up on my site because I was too lazy to get out the Family Recipe Book but couldn’t find it anywhere. That is when I realized that I had never shared it here.
I grew up eating this Chicken Noodle Soup and it was always one of my favorite meals. I think one of my favorite things about this recipe is the Homemade Egg Noodles that my mom always made to go in the soup. The Homemade Noodles are delicious and we loved helping my mom make them. I can remember her letting us cut them with the pizza cutter into crazy shapes and then dropping them into the simmering soup pot. I always loved the smell of it as it simmered in the house all afternoon.
Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
4 Chicken Breasts
5 cups Water
3 cups Chicken Broth
4 tsp Chicken Bouillon
1 clove Garlic, minced
1 tsp. Thyme
1 tsp. Sage
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 med. Onion, diced
1 cup Carrots, sliced
8 Celery Stalks, diced
8 oz. Egg Noodles or Homemade Egg Noodles (see recipe below) or Dumplings
1. Place Chicken Breasts and water in the Crock Pot and cook on high for about 3 hours (or low for 5 hours).
2. Shred Cooked Chicken and place back in the Crock Pot. Do NOT drain water from the Crock Pot.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the Egg Noodles, to the Crock Pot.
4. Cook for another 3 hours on low.
5. Add the noodles and finish cooking. If using Homemade Egg Noodles, they will need about 2 hours of cooking time to cook thoroughly, so add them a couple of hours before you want to serve the soup. The store bought noodles only need about 30-60 minutes to cook.
Homemade Egg Noodle Recipe
2 cups Flour
2 Eggs, beaten
4 Tbsp. Milk
1 tsp. Salt
2 Tbsp. Oil
1. Knead all ingredients together on a floured surface.
2. Roll out so that the noodles are very thin. Thick noodles don’t cook well.
3. Cut noodles into strips using a pizza cutter.
4. Scrape up noodles with a spatula and place into the soup. Be sure to separate them so they don’t clump into a large ball of noodles.
This is the ultimate comfort food. Perfect for a cool fall day or a frigid snow storm. This Chicken Noodle Soup also cures the common cold…I promise….or at least makes you feel a lot better. Hope you love it as much as we do!
