Slowcooker Chicken Noodle Soup

When the weather starts to cool down, it is time to whip out your slow cooker and make this delicious Slowcooker Chicken Noodle Soup.

It tastes just like the one my Grandma used to make, and it takes me right back to my childhood.

I will let you in on a little secret, this recipe hinges on using just the right amount of salt and pepper to balance the flavors. I would say it is so individual you need to make sure you season it how you like it.

Everyone will like to have slow cooker chicken noodle soup differently - so it really will just depend on how you like it. If you are giving it to kids, make sure you take theirs out before you go crazy with the pepper.

This recipe is one of my weekly meal prep ones, I will pop it in the slow cooker on Sunday and then I have it for lunch all week.

I was so glad I did it this week as I caught a cold, and it really is the perfect comfort food when you are feeling sick.

I like my slow cooker chicken noodle soup with more broth and fewer noodles as if there are too many noodles I find it a little overwhelming.

(I have also made this recipe on the stovetop and left it simmering on a low heat, so if you don't have a slow cooker don't worry!)

  2. With 30 minutes to go, add the pasta and stir.slowcooker-chicken-noodle-soup
  3. Once finished, remove chicken thighs with tongs, shred the chicken thighs using two forks in a slashing motion either in a bowl or on a chopping board. They may have already started to break down, and if so, just use the tongs to find the larger chunks in the slow cooker - then shred them.
  4. Then season with salt and pepper to taste - as advised above, the recipe hinges on seasoning it the right amount, so keep checking as you go along to make sure you don't overseason it!

We serve ours with crusty homemade garlic bread. But any crusty bread and butter would be perfect!

Of course, it is also great on its own!
