Chicken Noodle Soup in the Crock Pot--It's what's for dinner!!

I don't like to cook.  I do it out of necessity.  I'm no gourmet and I rarely try new and fancy recipes.  Therefore, I like fast and easy.  Years ago, my crock pot became my best friend, so much so that I have three!!  You can make all aspects of your meal in the crock pot. 

I also love soup.  And Chicken Noodle Soup is one of the family's favorites.  So here's my recipe (which isn't much of a recipe).  It's fast and easy.  Don't think too much when you make this. 

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

1 crock pot
4 or 5 or 6 cups of water
4 or 5 halves of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 or 2 cups of chopped celery
3 or 4 carrots cut up
1 onion cut up
salt and pepper to taste
Grandma's Egg noodles-Homemade

Put the water in first and throw everything else in EXCEPT the egg noodles.  I throw the chicken breasts in frozen and cut them up a few hours later when they have started to cook.  Add the egg noodles about 3 hours before you serve  the soup otherwise they will get too rubbery. The egg noodles (the bag) are pictured below and found in the frozen aisle of your store.  I love these because they taste and look homemade but I didn't have to make them.  Cook the soup about 8 hours on low, 6 on high.  Serve with crackers, homemade bread, and maybe a glass of milk!!  Easy peasy.  Enjoy!

Chicken noodle soup may be good for the soul but it's also good for the lazy cook!

Homemade Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup!


  1. I love crock pot soup also!
    If you add just a can or two of chicken broth in place of some of the water, the soup is so much more flavorful.

  2. necessity breeds contentment :)
