Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

slowcookerchickennoodlesoup

It was nice and rainy here in Orange County last week, but instead of enjoying my favorite weather I was fighting an awful cold. Ever since I was little my mom’s chicken noodle soup was my favorite remedy. It was so helpful while I was in survival mode trying to take care of three little ones. This also makes a large batch so I can have it the next day as well. It’s warm, flavorful, and so comforting when fighting a cold. This slow cooker chicken noodle soup is a super simple recipe that can be thrown together in five minutes in the morning no matter how under the weather you feel, and you can have a hot bowl by the afternoon. 

Ingredients:
2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
6 medium carrots peeled, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 medium yellow onion, halved
3 stalks celery, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 dry bay leaf
10 cups low sodium chicken broth
3 cups dry egg noodles
1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped


Directions:

Add chicken, carrots, onion, celery, salt, pepper, thyme, bay leaf and chicken stock to slow cooker.  slowcookersoup

Cover and cook for 4 hours on high, or 8 hours on low.

Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred.

Return shredded chicken to slow cooker.

Add pasta to the slow cooker and cook on high setting for 15-25 minutes, or until pasta is tender.

 

Taste the cooking liquid and season with more salt and pepper as needed. 

Add chopped parsley, stir, and serve.
