❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS CROCK POT RECIPE

Cooking in the crock pot creates a wonderful level of convenience. That is one of my favorite things about this recipe. It’s super simple, throw a few ingredients into the slow cooker, come back and add the noodles and you have a delicious meal. 

We also love that this is a one-dish meal, which is a favorite! You can add a side salad if you want something with it, but one-dish meals are always a plus!

Slow cooking also allows the ingredients to really meld together the longer it cooks. This will allow for really tender and juicy chicken. This recipe couldn’t be easier, the hardest part is making sure not to overcook the noodles. This recipe is made with egg noodles and they cook VERY fast, and all crock pots vary in heat so you have to watch them. 

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

Chicken Breast – These work well in the crock pot and turn out very juicy. 

Cream of Chicken Soup – This adds creaminess to this dish. Don’t want to use store-bought? You can make your own!

Chicken Broth – Keeps everything from drying out, and the noodles cook in the juice. 

Egg Noodles – These noodles are our favorite and the only ones we have used to make this recipe. 

As you can see, this is only 4 ingredients, which makes this dish super simple; however, it is very versatile. Take a moment and read through the many comments on this recipe for other ideas.

SWAPS

You could use chicken thighs in this recipe or other cuts of chicken but I have yet to try them. I also think turkey breast would work perfectly in this if you wanted to try that. 

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

This is only 4 ingredients and you use 3 in the crock pot. We have even provided a video in the recipe card to show adding the noodles. 

PREPARATIONS

There is no real preparations for this dish other than getting your ingredients out and opening the cans of soup. Doesn’t get much easier than that! 

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Place chicken breast in crock pot, cover with chicken soup and chicken broth.

Step 2
Cook on high for 4 -5 hours on high (low on 6-7) until chicken is easily shredded. I took the chicken out and shredded it and placed it back in crock pot. All crock pots vary in heat.. If yours gets really hot it may be less time. 

Step 3
Add noodles to crock pot chicken and cook for about 12-25 minutes until done. I stirred mine a few times to make sure all the noodles were soaking up the juice. It may look like the noodles won’t fit, but just keep working them into the chicken and juice mixture.

Note: Please pay attention to the crock pot once you add the noodles. Egg noodles cook very fast so pay attention to how quickly they are cooking. Again…All crock pots vary in heat.. If yours gets really hot it may be less time. I recently cooked this on hot to speed up the process, the liquid was very hot, it took 12 minutes to cook the noodles. If you cook your noodles to long they WILL turn to mush. 

⭐TIP

I know not everyone is a fan of condensed soups and may not want to use it. If you would like you can make your own and here is our recipe on how to do just that! This way you can control exactly what goes in this recipe.

RECIPE VARIATIONS

As you can see from the comments on this post this is a very versatile dish! You can add any spices your family loves and many have commented they have thrown in vegetables too. You can also add some sour cream or cheese to the final product. This dish is a wonderful base recipe and one you can play with and make your own. We love Italian seasonings, garlic, lots of black pepper, etc. We love it with a side of canned cranberry sauce! It’s sooo good!
