Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

I recently asked my daughter what she would LOVE for me to make and do you know what she said?
"Chicken Noodle Soup!  But, Mom!  No veggies and stuff though Mom.  Just chicken and noodles"

You got it, Ella!  So, being the amazing Mom I am....I honored her request.  LOL

Who could say no to this face?!

I kept things very simple by making my own broth.  So, grab those veggies in your fridge and throw them in your crock with some water and chicken and get it cookin'!  You'll add the noodles at the end after you've cooked them on the stove top because no one likes soggy noodles.  Plus, Gluten-Free noddles do not hold up well in the slow cooker.  And for as long as you'll be cooking this, you don't want the noodles to absorb all the water.

I'm trying something new as you can see!  I'm going to do a few video recipes and see how it goes :)

Now, go impress your family and make some amazing Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup.

Servings: 8-10

2 cups carrots, or 2-3 whole carrots
3-4 stalks celery
1 yellow onion
4 garlic cloves, peeled
3 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1-2 Tablespoons salt (I needed to add more than I did in the video)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon basil
1 bay leaf
2 teaspoons no-salt seasoning 
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4-1/2 teaspoon celery seed
10 cups water

Directions: (Use a 5 quart or larger Slow Cooker for this recipe)
Place all of the ingredients into your slow cooker, adding the water last.  Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or on HIGH for 3.5-5 hours.  With a slotted spoon, remove the veggies and bay leaf.  Remove the chicken and chop into small pieces.  Stir the chicken back into the soup.  Meanwhile, cook your desired amount of noodles according to package directions.  To serve, spoon the desired amount of noodles into your bowl, then ladle the chicken and broth over the top.  Enjoy!

  1. Fun! I don't put together soups in the crockpot very often because they generally turn out well in the regular stockpot. Thanks for the tips - chicken noodle is probably my favorite homemade soup.
