Chicken Noodle Soup Slow Cooker

Ladies and gents, let me introduce you to the easiest soup in all of the land —

Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

If there is one thing you should know how to do before you move away to college it’s learning how to make chicken noodle soup! I’m kicking myself that I didn’t learn how to make this scrumptious soup because I can’t tell you the number of times I was under the weather and just wanted chicken noodle soup!

We’re here to save the day with this super simple slow cooker chicken noodle soup recipe. What do you mean by simple? Well, let me explain!

  • Minimal Ingredients: This recipe calls for minimal, wholesome ingredients that you probably already have on hand! You’ll need a base of: chicken breast, chicken broth, carrots, celery, onion, and loads of spices and fresh herbs.
  • Simple Flavors: Don’t underestimate the power of brothy soup! This crock pot chicken noodle soup is flavored with Italian seasoning, garlic, salt, pepper, and tons of fresh herbs. It’s the perfect hot soup to warm the soul and cure the sick :D
  • Easy to Follow: It doesn’t get much easier than the slow cooker people. I love this slow cooker chicken noodle soup recipe mostly because you throw everything in the crock pot, turn it on, and BAM, you’ve got your soup ready in anywhere from 4-8 hours depending on what setting you use!

How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Stoup

Step 1: Chop Veggies

Like I mentioned above, this slow cooker chicken noodle soup recipe calls for a handful of very mild vegetables. That’s why this soup is great for curing the common cold or flu! When cutting your celery, carrots, and onions, make sure to cut them all relatively the same size. I call this size: finely chopped. It’s small enough to get multiple pieces of veggies in the same spoonful!

Optional veggie add-ins: If you’re looking to explore more vegetables, are a few we recommend trying out –> potatoes, sweet potatoes, a bag of frozen veggies, or green beans.

Step 2: Add, Pour, and Mix Ingredients

Once you’ve cut your veggies, it’s time to transfer everything into the slow cooker! Add your veggies, full (uncooked) chicken breasts, spices, and herbs to the slow cooker and pour in your broth. Then, give your soup a good stir.

Step 3: Cover, Set It, and Forget It

Now the is the easy part. You simply cover your slow cooker, set it, and forget it! We’re giving you two cook-time options in this recipe. One is on high and one is on low.

  • High: turn your slow cooker to high and cook for 3-4 hours or until your chicken is fully cooked.
  • Low: turn your slow cooker to low and cook for 6-8 hours or until your chicken is fully cooked. PS: this is the recommended method to get more tender chicken.

Step 4: Cube Chicken, Add Noodles, and Cover

Now that your chicken is fully cooked, it’s time to remove your chicken breasts and cube it! Make sure that you cut your chicken into small enough pieces (just like your veggies) so that you can get a piece of chicken in every bite! Once diced, add the chicken cubes back into your slow cooker.

Now, for the fun part…it’s time to cook your noodles! Add 3 cups of egg noodles to your slow cooker and mix with the hot broth (and the rest of the soup). Then, cover and let cook for 10ish minutes or until your noodles are cooked! Please do note that we’ve only tried this recipe with egg noodles, so if you use something else, just do your research!

Step 5: Serve Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Hot

Ain’t nobody like cold soup. So? Make sure that you serve your chicken noodle soup immediately! We recommend adding some fresh parsley on top and maybe even a zinger of hot sauce.
