{Crock Pot} Chicken and Noodles


If you read my blog on a regular basis ( Thank you, by the way!) you know that there are three familiar factors in alot of my main dish recipes...chicken, cheese and the crock pot.  This dish is no different. Well, it doesn't have any cheese, but, it's chicken in the crock pot..two out of the three. Win and win in my house.
This is nearly a whole meal right in your crock pot. You don't even have to cook the noodles before adding them.  Side this up with a nice veggie and call it dinner.

Adapted From 

Ingredients:
1 lb chicken breast
10 oz can of cream of chicken soup {or homemade}
10 oz water
8oz chicken broth
12oz wide egg noodles

Directions:
Spray crock pot with non stick cooking spray or line with crock pot liners/parchment paper.  In a mixing bowl, mix together soup, water and broth.  Place chicken in crock pot.  Pour soup mixture on top. Cook on high for 3 hours.  Remove chicken.  Cut or shred.  Put back into crock pot. Add noodles ( dry pasta, not cooked) and cook an additional hour, stirring occasionally.
Makes approx 8-1 cup servings.

    1. A crockpot (or slow cooker to some)is a small appliance that cooks your food slowly-(usually) unattended for a few to several hours depending on the dish.

  7. I'm sure there's a reason, but why not cut up the chicken prior to putting it in the crockpot? Seems like that would be simpler (I'm a lazy cook, lol). Looks delicious!

    1. Hi Rachel..thank you! I usually toss my chicken in a bit frozen, so, it's a bit easier once it's cooked a bit. But, cutting before putting in should be ok...keep en eye on it, it may change your cooking time though.
      Enjoy :)

  8. I was going to make this, but leave stuff in the crockpot while I am at work. Could I just put it on low and let it cook longer?

    1. Hi Bethany- you should be ok for 6-8 hours on low. You will have to give the noodles extra cooking too.
      Thanks for dropping by!
