Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup is one of my favorite soup recipes. It’s so easy, so yummy and so MUCH better than anything you could buy at the grocery.
- Combine broth, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, and salt & pepper.
- Set the chicken on the vegetables in the slow cooker.
- Cover. Cook on Low for 8 hours.
- Remove chicken and shred (use two forks for easy shredding).
- Remove bay leaves and throw away.
- Add noodles to the slow cooker and cook for 20 minutes.
- Return shredded chicken to the soup and combine well.
Serve in bowls with saltine crackers.

My noodles basically turned into mush:( What did I do wrong? I followed the recipe exactly.
I am not sure as you were only to cook the noodles for 20 minutes. How long did you cook them?
you can cook the noodles separate and add to bowl and pour soup over noodles..keeps them from getting mushy..hope this helps
If I want to cook on high how long to leave ingredients on high?
Hello Tanya, If you want to crock on high I would reduce the time to 3-4 hours. I would check it at that time, as every crock pot cooks differently, and you may need to cook a little longer depending on your crock pot! Hope that helps, and Happy Crocking!
Love this website, have made several delicious recipes from here! That being said, this soup had wonderful flavor, but unfortunately my noodles went soggy after twenty minutes too. I’m not sure but it was like my crock pot was too hot, even though it was on low. Next time I’ll just use elbow mac. Still a wonderful recipe, nobody complained! Thank you!
Megan thanks for posting. It is difficult sometimes to judge as all slow cookers crock differently. Glad to hear it was good! Happy Crocking!
Should we use frozen noodles?
Kate I use the frozen noodles for this recipe. Adding at the end! Enjoy and Happy Crocking!
I’ve never seen frozen noodles in Hawaii. What brands do you buy?
Just to make sure I’m reading this right…. put the raw chicken on top of the veggies?
That is correct Alyson! Happy Crocking!
Thanks. I’d like to add potatoes also. When should I add them and how long should I cook them?
How many servings does this make?
Hi Maryjane, You will find all the serving sizes in the upper right hand corner of each page, but I am happy o share with you that this makes 6-8 depending on the size of your bowls. Enjoy and Happy Crocking!
If I cut up and brown chicken separately and then add on top of veggies hiw long should I crock on high?
Sounds wonderful. However, I am on a low sodium diet and that sounds like a high level of sodium for using low-sodium broth. Ideas?
Hi Shirley, you may want to reduce the chicken broth even though low sodium, by half and add half water to make up the difference. (4 cups chicken broth, 4 cups water) Also eliminate the salt, or add a substitute you may be using at home. Hope this helps and Happy Crocking!
