Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

I’ve been so busy lately that I’ve struggled to get dinner on the table. I’m also feeling pretty sick so I’m looking for an easy and lazy way out. It’s both sad and funny how when mom is sick no one really seems to care. Everyone is so busy with themselves that moms always seem to be placed on the back burner. This super Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup is not only delicious but really truly helped me feel better. As an added bonus, my kids gobbled it up without a single complaint (a rare find around these parts).

  • 2 sprigs Fresh Thyme

 

 


Now We Cook!


I began by prepping the day before I planned to start cooking the soup. I did this because my little one is very needy and I didn’t want to have to choose between a happy baby and soup. This step is optional. I chopped up the carrots and celery into 1/4″ thick slices and put them inside of a quart sized ziplock bag. This bag went into the fridge. Then, inside of a gallon sized ziplock bag I put the chicken and canned goods. I double bagged the chicken bag to avoid any possible catastrophes and put it in the fridge with a stick of butter on top so that I wouldn’t forget that ingredient later. I’m no expert but I feel like letting the chicken marinate in the canned juices helped the taste grow.

  1. If you didn’t prep ahead of time, now comes the time to chop the carrots and celery.
  2. Place all of the prepped ingredients, minus the noodles and thyme, into the crock pot / slow cooker (we use an Instant Pot). Stir. Place the sprigs of Thyme on top of the mixture and close your crock pot / slowcooker.
  3. Set your crock pot / slow cooker on LOW for SIX (6HOURS.
  4. Set aside the Thyme. Shred the chicken with a fork. Pour in the desired amount of uncooked Egg Noodles. You can add some water now if you feel that your noodles aren’t covered by the current mixture. I had to add two cups of water.
  5. Set your crock pot / slow cooker on LOW for TWO (2HOURS.
  6. Salt and Pepper to your liking. (I did this on each individual bowl so that my 9 month old could enjoy some soup goodness).
  7. Enjoy!
