Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

Another day, another month! Isn’t it crazy how fast time flies by, yet stands still all at the same time?!? I feel like I’m in a time warp… March just began too and in the past six days there has been snow, freezing temps and all out sunshine. That’s Colorado in a nutshell!

And since March is supposedly the “snowiest” month of the year, soups and stews are still quite acceptable. Hence, this easy-to-throw-together Slow Cooker Chicken noodle Soup. It contains simple, good for you ingredients, and is way tastier than some store bought brands I’ve tried.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Chicken Breasts, large
  • 10 cups Chicken Broth, low sodium
  • 1 12 oz bag No Yolks Pasta (Dumplings Style)
  • 4 Carrots, peeled and diced
  • 4 Celery Stalks, diced
  • 1 Small Onion, diced
  • 6 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 tsp Dried Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Dried Thyme
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • Fresh Parsley, for topping

Instructions

  • Liberally season both sides of the chicken with pepper and salt, and add to a 6-quart slow cooker.
  • Add the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, bay leaves, rosemary, thyme and the chicken broth.
  • Season with some additional pepper and salt and stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook on high heat for 3-4 hours, or low heat for 6-8 hours. 
  • During the last 15-20 minutes, remove and shred the chicken, using two forks. Stir in the chicken and pasta into the slow cooker. Cover and cook until tender.
  • If need be, finish off with some more pepper and salt and stir until well combined.
  • Optional: top each bowl with some parsley and serve immediately. 

Notes

  • Cook Time: I cooked it for 3 1/2 hrs on high heat, shredded the chicken, added the chicken and pasta and cooked for 20 more mins.
  • Cook Time: If cooking on low heat, you will need to cook the pasta for an additional 10+ minutes or so.
  • Pasta: Add all of the pasta, for a more filling soup. Add a bit less, if you want more of a liquid to pasta ratio.

  1. I make chicken noodle soup quite often throughout the year, but never in a slow cooker. I’m eager to try this way of making it! Soup is certainly timely in Minnesota now too! Mounds of snow all over town so high one can’t see cars coming from an intersection. And more is forecast this week-end! Thanks again for the colorful photos that create a desire to try your recipes!

    1. Oh yes, the slow cooker is a life saver! I love making soups that way.

      And that is WAY too much snow for me! 😉 Stay safe.

  2. Trying this one! Anything in a crock pot works for me. Hard to watch a pot on the stove with two little ones! 🙂 It’s almost summer in TN, unfortunately (Yes, in March!). We didn’t even get a snow dusting this year! I miss it, so I’m a bit jealous, Pat Windel. Thanks for the recipe, Naomi!!!

    1. Yay, you’ll have to let me know what you think of it Connie. It’s a fave in this house.

      And I know you are jealous of our Colorado winter weather, but I’m a bit jealous of your weather too. I could probably have warm/hot weather all the time and be happy. 😉 (Thanks for the comment love, friend)!
