Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

What’s the most comforting food for those winter chills and ills? Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, of course. Author Julie Beyer RD offers a fabulous recipe for a slow cooker chicken noodle soup that will fill your home with a fabulous aroma and, of course, taste great at the end of a cold winter day, especially for those family members feeling under the weather.

Ingredients

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 medium carrots, peeled and sliced into coins
  • 3 stalks celery, cut into small, bite-sized pieces
  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced
  • 3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning (MSG-free)
  • 6 cups MSG free chicken broth (Swanson’s is available almost everywhere)
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of black pepper (if tolerated)
  • 1 ½ cupped cooked eggs noodles (I like Marie Callender’s brand found in the freezer section)

Directions

Add whole chicken breasts to pre-heated, 5 to 6 quart slow cooker. Add carrots, celery, onion, garlic, broth, and seasonings. Cover and cook on low heat for 6 to 8 hours or until  chicken breasts reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove chicken breasts. Chop into bite sized pieces and return to soup mixture.
