Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup #SundaySupper

Happy Sunday!  This week, the #SundaySupper crew is teaming up to share things that warm our soul.  When I heard about this week’s theme, the first thing that came to mind was the Chicken Soup For The Soul book series, so of course I had to make Chicken Noodle Soup.
I love soup in general.  But none has the same ‘comfort’ level as chicken noodle.  I remember that being what my grandmother always made me when I was a little girl and didn’t feel well (granted, Campbell’s actually made it, but still…) and it’s still my soup of choice if I’m feeling under the weather.  There’s just something about the warm broth, the smooth noodles and the crunch of a cracker.  It warms my soul just thinking about it.
My life is busy these days.  My daughter started Kindergarten this year and I’ve taken on more days in the office.  I don’t always have time to stand over the stove.  I’ve always loved my Crock Pot, but I’ve looked toward it more in the last year as a way to prepare old favorites.  Chicken Noodle Soup was no exception.  My Crock Pot version is so simple… even your husband can do it!
Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup
Makes 6 Quarts
3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 16 oz Bag Baby Carrots
1 Bunch Celery
1 Large Sweet Onion
2 Cartons (48 oz each) Chicken Broth
1 Tablespoon Sage
4 Cloves Garlic
2 Teaspoons Salt
2 Teaspoons Pepper
48 oz Water (approximately)
1 Package Extra Wide Egg Noodles
In a 6 Qt Crock Pot, add chicken, carrots, celery (roughly chopped), onion (roughly chopped), broth, sage, garlic, salt and pepper.  Cook over low heat 6-8 hours.
Approximately 30 minutes before serving, pull the chicken breasts from the Crock Pot.  Using two forks, shred the chicken breasts.  Return the chicken to the Crock Pot.  Add the egg noodles and fill the Crock Pot with water to just below the rim.  Increase the heat to high and cook 15-20 minutes, stirring once or twice.
Seriously guys… how easy is that?  This will easily feed a family of 4 for at least 2 full meals, maybe more.  It’s simple, it’s classic, it warms you – inside and out.
If Chicken Noodle Soup doesn’t warm your soul, maybe one of these other dishes from our #SundaySupper crew will…
