Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup
There is nothing like coming home after a long day to a nice warm bowl of chicken noodle soup.
- 1 lb. chicken breasts or tenders
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1 cup diced carrots
- ½ diced onion
- 2 whole clove of garlic
- 5 cups chicken broth
- 2-3 bay leaves
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 8 ounce dried pasta of your choice small is best like elbows or rings
In a slow cooker place the chicken.
Place on top of the chicken the carrots, celery, onion, and spices.
Cover with chicken broth making sure that all ingredients are covered.
Use additional water if needed to cover ingredients.
Set slow cooker to high.
Cook for 5-6 hours.
When cooking is finished shred chicken with a knife and fork. (you may need to remove chicken to do this on a cutting board and then return to the slow cooker)
Cook and drain pasta according to package directions.
To serve place desired amount of pasta (I suggest about ½ cup) into soup bowls.
Top with soup mixture.
