"This is a wonderfully easy soup to cook while at work or on a busy day! This can be 'soupy' with more broth; or sometimes I like to thicken the juice with a little water and cornstarch mixture and let cook till thick. Then it is good served over mashed potatoes! Enjoy!!" — KathyLP

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
salt and pepper to taste
1 (12 ounce) package
frozen egg noodles
This was a good soup. I used 2 cans of chicken broth with 2 cups of water and I also threw in a chicken boullion cube. I added 16 oz of frozen mixed veggies and just cooked my dry egg noodles on the stove and added them that way. It's much faster! I thickened this with some cornstarch. Oh, and I added 1 tsp each of celery salt and garlic powder. I thought it had a very nice flavor and was not at all bland.
I doubled this recipe and used chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. This is a good base recipe--I did add more chopped veggies and some additional spices. GREAT for a house full of people with a bad cold.
GREAT - here were my modifications....followed recipe but used chicken broth instead of water and added 1 tbls poultry seasoning. PERFECT. Other personal notes....4 breast halves were too much, next time I'll use three. I thickened mine with flour - took quite a bit, but came out perfect.
I made this first about a month ago and forgot to rate it. I've made it several times since then and made it different every time. Its super yummy and cheap, too for skinny-wallet-times. I added some baby carrots and thickened it a little and we ate it just like soup with crackers. Winter comfort food. This recipe is part of my base menu from now on....
I really liked this recipe. It's not fancy or complex, but simple chicken and noodles. Great for a lunch on a chilly day. I used 1 T. of cornstarch mixed with 1/4 c. of the broth to thicken it up and then added the noodles about an hour later. I didn't remove anything before adding the noodles, either. It turned out like a thick, flavorful chicken noodle stew. I will add more veggies next time just to get those daily servings in. Also, I only used 2 chicken breasts (it's what we had in the house) and there was still a lot of chicken. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Kathy.
4 stars...and I haven't even tried it yet! I left it in the crock pot over night and just from looking and smelling it this morning I can tell it's a winner! I did make some recommended adjustement: 2 teas. old bay seasoning, 1 teas. celery salt, 1 teas. garlic salt. I did use low sodium chicken broth instead of water. I also added young peas and carrots and omitted the onion (we're not big fans).
Loved this one!! I was able to make the best chicken noodles ever!! I like a gravy rather than soup so i added the Tbls. of Corn Starch w/ water. I didnt have any frozen noodles so I used a bag of dry egg noodles and it turned out fine, noodles were a little soggy but the gravy sooo made up for it. I also added poultry seasoning, garlic, carrots and soup base(1/2 the required amount, next time i will use all).I didnt have a problem with graying or translucent veggies?? I suppose the soup base helped with color. 4 stars since I had to doctor it up.
Like SusanKaty, I'm giving this recipe five stars because it is such a good base to build from. I took many reviewer recommendations including celery salt, a couple of bay leaves, and poultry seasoning. My wife had chicken thighs (8 or so) in the slow cooker without a plan. I cut a lemon into slices and let that cook for 45 minutes or so. Then, after taking the chicken off of the bone and putting it back in the cooker, I added plenty of chicken broth, the reviewer spices (a teaspoon or so each) and a teaspoon of chicken bouillon. To fix the gray color, I added 15 or 20 drops of yellow food coloring. Near the end I added 3 or 4 tablespoons of cornstarch as a thickening agent. I added one tablespoon (mixed with a little water or chicken broth in measuring cup), to the mixture, then let it sit for 5 minutes or so. I continued that process until the mixture is at a desirable consistency. By the way, the lemons I used on the chicken lended a wonderful flavor that spread to the entire mixture. This recipe seems to have a wide margin for error. In preparing this dish--after 3 years of learning to cook, I finally felt like I had enough confidence to deviate from the main recipe a bit. This is a keeper. Easy, easy, easy.
