Cold and flu season will be here before we know it which means I’m getting ready. I’m stocking up on everything we need to help keep us healthy and also perfecting those comfort foods we depend on when anyone in my family is feeling under the weather. Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup is one of those staples.
Crockpot Chicken Soup is really a fall and winter staple but it’s especially comforting when those coughs and sneezes try to find a place in our home.
Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup
There’s just something about using our Crockpot to make warm and hearty meals once the weather starts to cool down. I grew up in Colorado and I can remember cold and snowy evenings where we sat down to a tasty meal from the slow cooker.
Even though I live in Texas now, we still have some chilly nights. When we’ve been out running around and come home to peel off our coats, it’s so nice to have something like Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup to enjoy together.
Even my picky eaters enjoy it! So it’s a great mean when we’re all feeling well and at the top of our game.
But it packs an extra punch when any of us is under the weather. They say chicken soup is medicinal right? I think it’s the comfort factor that really helps when you’re dealing with a cold.
Comforting Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup
So I stock up on PURELL® products for around the house including the kitchen. If you haven’t tried PURELL® Multi Surface Disinfectant yet, it’s great for when you’re making food in the kitchen.
It’s approved for food prep surfaces and there is no water rinse needed. It’s one easy step and I know that germs are gone without harsh chemicals and we’re ready to make some good food.
Like most slow cooker recipes we love, this Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is extremely easy to make! You get the homemade chicken soup you want without having to slave away in the kitchen!
Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
There are two ways to make this easy Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup depending on the amount of time you have available. You can start with raw chicken breasts or you can use Crockpot Shredded Chicken.
When I use our Crockpot Shredded Chicken recipe, I usually make extra for additional recipes so sometimes I’ll just break some of it out of the freezer and use it to make this slow cooker chicken soup. It reduces the cook time you’ll need.
If you check the recipe, I’ll talk about that shortcut!
But if you’re working with raw chicken breasts, it’s still super simple to make a delicious batch of Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup. Your first steps will basically get you shredded chicken that’s full of flavor from what will also end up being the broth for your soup!
To make this recipe you’ll need boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chicken broth, Cream of Chicken soup, and Egg Noodles.
You can add chopped vegetables in if you’d like but we keep it pretty simple here to appeal to our picky eater. So we still to the basic chicken noodle soup.
If you do want to add vegetables, I recommend carrots, celery, and onion. In the past, I’ve diced up a small onion, two or three carrots, and a few stalks of celery. It turns it into a nice adult chicken noodle soup!
Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup
- 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cans Cream of Chicken soup
- 3.5 cups chicken broth
- Seasoned salt (as desired)
- Dried Parsley (as desired)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 8 oz Egg Noodles
- Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker. Pour both cans of Cream of Chicken soup over chicken.
- Season with Seasoned Salt and dried parsley, as desired
- Slice butter and place pats of butter on top of the soup.
- Add chicken broth. Cook on HIGH for 3.5 - 4 hours (or LOW for 5-6 hours).
- Once the chicken is completely cooked, remove it from the liquid and use two forks to shred. Then add it back to the Crockpot.
- Add egg noodles and stir.
- Cook on HIGH for 30-45 minutes or until noodles are desired consistency.
Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup is my go-to comfort meal during cold and flu season. I keep most of the ingredients on hand to make sure I’m prepared.
We do our best to stay healthy in the face of cold season by being diligent with handwashing, getting plenty of rest, drinking tons of water, and eating healthy food. We usually make it through pretty healthy too!
So that’s my plan this year! But when comfort food is called for this Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle soup recipe will be at the top of the list!

I added the noodles and 30 mins later my soup had no juice at all in it not sure why or how this wasn’t a problem for you??
Were you cooking on high or low? How did the liquid level look before you added the noodles?
