You’ll need a great crock pot to make this:
Now you definitely need a crockpot for this recipe. There are some really good ones on sale right now. If you work all day, you may want to invest in a programmable crockpot. They are awesome because you can set them to start later, or to stop and switch to warm once the dinners are ready.
If you want to save yourself even more time (don’t we all?) then I really recommend these Crockpot liners. They make clean up a breeze. Instead of scrubbing and washing the pot, you can just toss the liner. It is practically no clean up… seriously, no clean up at all.
- Boneless skinless chicken breasts (or chicken thighs)
- Chopped Onion
- Chopped Carrots and Celery
- Salt and Pepper
- Season Salt (just a dash)
- Minced Garlic
- Chicken Stock or Low fSodium Chicken Broth
- Reame’s Frozen Noodles or Wide Egg Noodles
How to make Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup:
First add the chicken to your favorite crock pot. Then add the onion, carrots and celery to the slow cooker as well.
Next add in the seasonings or you can use fresh herbs if you prefer.
Then take 1 cup of water or chicken broth and whisk in the ½ cup of flour. Pour this in the crock pot as well.
Next add the remaining chicken broth or water. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or cooked on high for 3-4 hours.
Finally, in the last hour of the cook time, add in the noodles. Put your crock pot on the high setting and allow the crock pot to cook the noodles for you. You will need at least 30 minutes to cook the pasta inside the slow cooker.
After this hour, remove the chicken, shred the chicken and return it to your slow cooker. Stir all the ingredients together and enjoy!
Is it better to cook noodles before adding to soup?
I like to add them directly to the crockpot, but make sure it is the last ingredient you add. Wait until the soup is close to be finished and then add the noodles directly to the crock pot.
Let the noodles simmer until they are about halfway cooked. The noodles will continue to cook with the residual heat from the soup.
This recipe is budget friendly!
If you don’t have any of these, you can add egg noodles instead that you got for cheap or even gluten free noodles. It would only take about 20 minutes in the crockpot to cook instead of the full hour.
My family just loves this recipe and it feels great on our sore throats. This is a regular addition to our weekly fall and winter menu. Enjoy!

In addition, you can easily make crockpot creamy chicken noodle soup by mixing in 1 cup of heavy whipping cream into the slow cooker during the last hour of the cook time.
Also, if you want to save even more time, you can easily make crock pot chicken noodle soup with frozen vegetables instead of fresh ones. The frozen bags of peas and carrots or the frozen bag of mixed green beans, corn, peas and carrots both work great in this crock pot recipe.
