A SIMPLE SLOW COOKER MEAL

I’ll admit, this won’t be the prettiest meal you ever did make, but I can guarantee that it is delicious, comforting and filling! This Crock Pot Chicken and Noodles is a simple, humble recipe that is pure comfort in a bowl. The leftovers heat up well and it is best served with some crusty bread to dip into the broth or maybe with a side salad.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What can I serve with chicken and noodles?

I will usually serve this with a side salad or some steamed vegetables. Or sometimes we just eat it with some Butter Biscuits.

Can I use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts?

Yes, you certainly can.

What kind of egg noodles should I use?

I usually get a wide egg noodle but you can use pretty much any egg noodle you enjoy. No yolk egg noodles work fine here too. Most egg noodles come in a 12 ounce bag – you’ll just need about ¾ of the bag for this recipe. Just be careful if you purchase the flat, Amish-style dry egg noodles. They soak up more liquid than a traditional egg noodle so you’ll need more chicken broth.

What if I don’t like cream of chicken soup?

You can really use any cream soup you think might work with the flavors in this. Cream of mushroom or even cream of onion would work with this.

How do you store leftovers?

Leftovers can be stored in a lidded container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Keep in mind that the noodles continue to soak up the liquid so the mixture will be thicker than when you first made it. You can always thin it out with a bit more chicken broth if you prefer. I don’t recommend freezing leftovers.
