Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

From Healthy Cooking 101

Ingredients:
  • 4 cups carrots, chopped into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (scale to taste - adds some spice)
  • 2 tsp salt (scale to taste)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (mine had thigh meat), thawed
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • homemade noodles (or pkg linguine)

Combine all ingredients except linguine in slow cooker. Cook on high 3-4 hours (or low 6-8 hrs). Remove chicken, shred into bite-sized pieces (I shredded it using two forks), return to pot. Break uncooked noodles into short pieces, add to pot and cook 30 minutes more on low.

Notes:

This is very much more a stew than a soup. Add any additional vegetables at appropriate times during the cooking process. I actually used about 1 tsp red pepper flakes and Alex thought it was a little too zingy - he prefers slightly blander chicken soup - but I thought it had a nice mouthfeel. This prepared somewhere in 4-6 qts, so you may want to do a half recipe instead.
