Not that you can only cook chicken noodle soup when you aren’t feeling well, but it kinda’ comes to mind when seasons change and the sniffles hit your (and our) house right??!! Comfort food is the best! I love this easy crockpot chicken soup recipe because you only need a few fresh ingredients, it’s good for you, and it only takes about 10 minutes to prep in your slow cooker or even faster in your Instant Pot! Here’s what you’ll need:
Chicken soup in the crockpot
- Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken breasts (locally grown in CA. and the Pacific Northwest – 3 is enough)
- 3 large carrots (I used a few more because organic varieties tend to be a bit smaller)
- 3 stalks of celery
- 1/2 yellow onion
- 2 containers of chicken stock
- You’re ready!
Literally this crockpot soup is so easy to make. Just chop the celery, onions, and carrots into small pieces like these. Lay your chicken breasts on the bottom and put your veggies on top. If you strive to make good for you meals at your house and eat organic foods this is a great recipe to try. Foster Farms Simply Raised varieties of chicken contain NO antibiotics, are free of additives, preservatives and hormones…makes for a great taste to this comfort soup! You can lightly season it as well with some salt and pepper but honestly I don’t add any salt, the sodium in the broth is plenty and it tastes amazing as is with just these fresh ingredients.
Add your chicken broth and let your crockpot do the work for you all day! It cooks while you are away and just takes 10 minutes once you get back to gently shred the chicken inside the crockpot (it will literally fall apart after 6 hrs, no need to take it out and cut it), add your noodles, and a bit of parsley is you desire. Here is the entire chicken soup in the crockpot recipe you can print out.
Chicken soup in the crockpot
- 64 oz chicken stock
- 3 Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken breasts
- 3 carrots sliced
- 3 stalks of celery sliced
- 1/2 yellow onion diced or cut into chunks
- salt to taste
- 2 c uncooked egg noodles
- 3 diced sprigs of parsley
Put chicken breasts at bottom of crockpot.
Cut carrots, celery and onions and put on top.
Add pinch of salt if desired.
Pour chicken stock over chicken and vegetables.
Cook on low for approx. 6-8 hours (will be done in 6).
About 10 min. before serving gently shred chicken into chunks (will fall apart, no need for cutting),add noodles and parsley if desired .
Cover and cook until noodles are cooked but still a bit al dente (that's how we like it).
I honestly don't add any salt, the salt in the stock is plenty and it tastes amazing as is. Serve.
