Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

  • Cooking Time:

    8-9 hours
  • Servings:



4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
2 stalks of celery, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
3 cups wide egg noodles, uncooked

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.

  1. Combine broth, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, and salt & pepper.
  2. Set the chicken on the vegetables in the slow cooker.
  3. Cover. Cook on Low for 8 hours.
  4. Remove chicken and shred (use two forks for easy shredding).
  5. Remove bay leaves and throw away.
  6. Add noodles to the slow cooker and cook for 20 minutes.
  7. Return shredded chicken to the soup and combine well.

Serve in bowls with saltine crackers.

Happy Crocking!

If I want to cook on high how long to leave ingredients on high?

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!

Should we use frozen noodles?

I’ve never seen frozen noodles in Hawaii. What brands do you buy?

Thanks. I’d like to add potatoes also. When should I add them and how long should I cook them?

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?
