failproof-easy-delicious chicken noodle soup {in a crock pot}

We are still trying to recover from illness...in fact this morning I had to take Moses to the doctor for what turned out to be an ear infection.  :(  Hoping and praying that we are on the mend!

Anyway, I woke up yesterday desperate for someone to bring me some chicken soup...and since I'm the mom, there wasn't a whole lot of chance of that happening.  I thought if I could just find a recipe easy enough...maybe I could handle doing it.  A little prayer and google later...voila.  I found/created the BEST chicken noodle soup recipe ever.

No joke.  Doug says it's the best homemade soup he's ever had.  And he's a picky eater.

Even better.  Prep takes less than ten minutes. And it cooks in the crock pot.

Don't stick your nose up like that...it's good!:)

If I insist on it, will you make this?  Quickly before winter leaves us, ok?

Here's my new favorite recipe for good ol' chicken noodle soup. 
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used these to make it easier...no bones or skin to deal with)
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste, depending on saltiness of broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 small onion chopped (about 3/4c-1c)
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly chopped (roughly the same amount as the onion)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 ounces egg noodles (I did two reach in the bag handfuls)
  • (if you INSIST you can add one chopped carrot but who would do that?)
Place everything but chicken and noodles in the crockpot.  Stir them all together.  Add chicken, raw.  Cook on low for 5-6 hours.  Remove chicken and cut up...I held the chicken with tongs and cut it up with kitchen scissors...put chicken back in.  Add the noodles and cook for another hour.  Remove bay leaf...Serve and enjoy!

See!  Told you it was easy. :) 
I love finding a good recipe for my crockpot!

And I just had leftovers for lunch!  The noodles were still good and the soup was still amazing!

Enjoy!
