Slow Cooker Hearty Chicken Noodle Soup

Ingredients

Servings  8   Serving Size   2 cups

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (all visible fat discarded)
  • 3 cups peeled, sliced carrots (around 1 pound of carrots)
  • 3 cups chopped celery
  • 2 medium zucchinis, cut into a medium dice
  • 1 can low-sodium chicken broth
  • 6 cups water
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons Italian spice blend

Directions

Tip: Click on step to mark as complete.

  1. Add chicken breasts to the bottom of a 6-quart (or larger) slow cooker bowl. Top with carrots, celery, zucchini, chicken broth, water, bay leaves, Italian spice blend, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt.
  2. Cover the slow cooker with a lid and cook until chicken is fully-cooked, about 8 hours on low heat or 4 hours on high heat.
  3. Using a fork, remove and discard bay leaves from soup. Using tongs, transfer chicken to a medium bowl. Stir in the fresh or dried dill. Turn off heat but leave soup covered to keep warm.
  4. Let chicken cool and then cut into bite-size pieces. Meanwhile, cook egg noodles according to package directions.
  5. To serve, portion noodles into the bottom of each bowl. Ladle soup over noodles and serve.

Cooking Tip: Carrots don't necessarily need to be peeled, although they do look prettier for it. If you're in a rush, just wash them with water and slice without peeling.

Keep it Healthy: The slow cooker is also a great and easy resource to make your own chicken stock. Add 1 or 2 leftover chicken carcasses into a slow cooker along with water and any leftover vegetables in the fridge like carrots, celery, and onions. Let cook on low until flavorful, at least 8 hours.

Tip: To store any leftovers, make sure to separately package the soup from the noodles. Otherwise, the noodles will soak up all the chicken soup broth.
