No Fuss Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

I was feeling pretty poorly last week so I thought a big bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup would be just the trick to nourish me and put some pep back in my step. In fact studies have been done that show Chicken Soup to be more effective than placebo in reducing symptoms of a cold.

The only catch was because I was feeling unwell I didn’t really want to slave over a stove all day. Cue the slow cooker, a marvelous invention for the busy (or lazy) cook.

I’ve used boneless chicken thigh fillets so there are no bones to fish out of the soup before serving. If you don’t have homemade chicken stock on hand don’t worry, I’ve just used a pre-made variety.

    Hi! Just wondering how many minutes before serving do the noodles go in? Hubby is coming down with a case of man flu and this sounds perfect. Thanks!

      Oops sorry I missed that time (have added it now – thanks) . 10 minutes is fine, but most will cook fine if they are there for around 5-8 minutes. Good luck with the man flu!

    Thanks for the recipe Cintia! Here in Laramie, Wyoming we’re getting pounded with spring storms and lots of snow so this will be great for supper this week!
