I have several Crockpot recipes on this blog for that very reason. I’m not sure why, but I haven’t yet shared one of my family’s favorite slow cooker meals – Crockpot homemade chicken noodle soup! The first time I made this slow cooker chicken noodle soup my family loved it, so I’ve stuck with the same recipe ever since.

CROCKPOT CHICKEN SOUP

EQUIPMENT YOU’LL NEED

How to Make a Homemade Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs (breasts will work, too, but thighs are more tender)
  • 1 celery stalk, sliced or chopped
  • 1 lb carrots, peeled and sliced or chopped
  • 1medium onion, chopped
  • Better Than Boullion Roast Chicken, 3/4 of a jar (chicken stock or chicken broth will work, too, but Better Than Boullion has amazing flavor!)
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1/2 tbsp poultry spice
  • 1/2 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tbsp ground thyme (dried thyme will work, too)
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic salt
  • water, enough to fill up crockpot
  • noodles of choice (I used egg noodles for this recipe)

COOKING HACK: SHRED CHICKEN USING A KITCHENAID STAND MIXER!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Chop onion, carrots and celery and place in mixing bowl.
  2. Place chicken (do not chop or cut) and vegetables in Crockpot, then fill with water to about an inch of the top of the Crockpot. 
  3. Add all spices and Better Than Boullion, then stir thoroughly with a large mixing spoon, making sure that the Better Than Boullion is fully dissolved.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 2-4 hours (I recommend using the low method). Stir occasionally (it’s okay if you won’t be home to do so). note: noodles will be prepared right before serving so they won’t be mushy
  5. Using a slotted spoon, remove chicken from Crockpot and place into a medium mixing bowl or stand mixer bowl (I prefer using a stand mixer). Shred chicken using forks or on the lowest setting for the stand mixer (make sure not to over mix the chicken or it will get mushy) to desired shred size. After shredding, add chicken back to Crockpot and stir. 
  6. Prepare noodles according to package instructions, then drain and set aside. Ladle chicken soup into serving bowls and add desired amount of noodles to each bowl. Serve with crackers!
