Ingredients Needed-

With just a couple of ingredients, you can have this easy slow-cooker chicken noodle soup ready to cook!

  • Chicken– For this recipe, we used boneless skinless chicken breast but you can also use boneless skinless chicken thighs.
  • Celery– The celery stalks may be sliced or cubed. You can also just keep the celery whole and discard once cooked.
  • Carrots– The carrots can be sliced or finely chopped.
  • Onions– Finely chopped onions bring extra flavor to the soup. However, if you don’t like the texture of the onion, just keep it whole so you can discard the onion once cooked.
  • Chicken broth– Classic chicken broth or low-sodium chicken broth with work.
  • Water– We like to dilute the soup with some water.
  • Dried herbs– The key to making a flavor-packed soup is the dried herbs that you use! We like to use dried rosemary, bay leaves, and dried thyme but you can also use dried oregano, basil, and sage.
  • Seasoning– We also add the classic salt and black pepper to taste. For extra flavor you can also use garlic.
  • Pasta– For this recipe, we use wide egg noodles.

Frequently Asked Questions-

Can I substitute the chicken broth for the chicken stock?

Yes! If you have chicken stock on hand you can use that instead of chicken broth.

Can I use other pasta?

Yes, use whatever pasta you have on hand. Angel hair pasta, spaghetti, linguine, or fettuccine pasta may be used. Cooking time will slightly vary depending on the thickness of the pasta.

Can I substitute the rosemary and thyme?

Yes! If you do not like the distinct flavors from the dried herbs you can substitute the herbs for your favorite seasonings. We especially love Vegeta in soups.

Can I use frozen chicken for this recipe?

We do not recommend using frozen chicken.

Storing & Reheating-

  • Store– Once the chicken noodle soup is cooled, add it into an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
