Crockpot Chicken and Noodles

By: Melissa Baker

This is an easy, "go to" recipe that has very few ingredients. You can throw it in the crock pot and let it cook while you are working, at ball games, shopping, etc. Very simple yet really delicious! 

Ingredients:
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used frozen)
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 2-15 oz cans chicken broth
  • 24oz. frozen egg noodles

Directions:

Cook chicken, soup, butter, and broth in crock-pot on low for 6-7 hours. 
Take chicken out and shred. 
Put chicken back in; add noodles and cook on low for 2 hours. 
Stir a few times while cooking

Tip: Serve with mashed potatoes.

    1. Leighona, I've done it frozen and thawed. Frozen just takes an extra hour or two in the crockpot. :)

    1. Colleen, YES! I make it without the crockpot all the time. Boil your chicken first. Remove the chicken, using the same water, boil the noodles. Shred chicken. Add chicken to noodles. Keep the water, do not drain. Put into 13x9 pan and bake for 15-20 min at 350*. **I add Velveta cheese for a different flavor. :)

    1. Check in the freezer section of your grocery store, usually near other frozen breads, rolls, etc. Not all stores carry them, but you might be surprised. They're delicious-- thicker and more "bready," sorta like dumplings.

    1. Tabitha, yes you could, but I wouldn't put them in the crock pot too long.

  11. I want to add carrots and celery, when should I? In the beginning or when I add the noodles?

    1. Ooh! Great idea! I would say maybe halfway. They'll take longer than the noodles but not as long as the chicken. Hope that helps!

  15. If I was to cut the recipe in half and used thawed Chicken would the cook time be the same?

    1. Krystal, it would be just about the same. You might be able to shave a little time off with it being thawed chicken. Hope that helps you a little.
