Everyone’s favorite soup is even easier with this recipe for slow cooker chicken noodle soup. Can you say soup comfort food?


  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 4 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 4 celery stalks, sliced
  • 1 sweet onion, peeled and diced
  • 8 cups chicken broth (I like the Imagine brand)
  • 2 cups thin noodles (see note)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley


  1. Place all ingredients except for noodles, parsley and salt and pepper into a large slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
  2. Take out the chicken and shred it into pieces.
  3. While you are shredding the chicken, pour the noodles into the slow cooker, give the soup a stir and cook for another 15 minutes on high or until noodles are done.  Stir the shredded chicken back in.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Ladle into bowls, garnish with parsley and serve!


The thin noodles will almost melt into the soup, giving it a thicker texture.  If you want more “distinct” noodles, you can use elbow noodles or bow-ties.  Either cook them separately and stir them in, or add them after the soup is done and cook on high for another 15-20 minutes or until done.
