Super easy slow cooker chicken noodle soup

Don’t you love it when you make something new and it is (a) easy and (b) the kids come back for seconds???? That is exactly what happened with this slow cooker chicken noodle soup. Now it certainly is on the plain end of chicken noodle soups and I can’t do the chicken carcass thing, so it could be more authentic, but it is on regular rotation for our Monday soup nights this winter. An easy and tasty meal like this which I can prepare in advance is a winner for me!

Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

Ingredients:

  • 4 large carrots
  • A small bunch of spring onions
  • 1 1/2 tbsp parsley
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 5 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup soup pasta (or preferred noodles)

Method:

  1. Finely chop carrot and spring onions and place on the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Cut chicken into small cubes and then place in slow cooker on top of the veggies.
  3. Add parsley, salt and pepper, then pour stock over the ingredients.
  4. Cook on high for about 2 hours and then turn to low for another 4 hours. (Obviously you could leave it on high and cook in half the time.)
  5. About an hour before I want to serve the soup, I give it a stir with a fork and break up any pieces of chicken that may have stuck together.
  6. 20 minutes before you wish to eat the soup add the pasta and stir it through. Pasta will go quite mushy if you cook it for too long.

      I can’t believe that I haven’t cooked this soup before.

    Will have to give this a go as Princess will not eat my home made chicken soup made from the chicken carcass. Perhaps this could be a stepping stone :) (fingers crossed as I’d hate to waste my carcass the next time we hav a roast).

    Actually, I think the problem is I use ALL of the traditional soup vegies, swede, turnip, carrot … maybe leaving out thos first two would help …
