Recipe Tips

  • The chicken is fully cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • You can use two forks or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment to shred the chicken.
  • Don't let the noodles sit too long in the soup, as they can continue to cook and become mushy.
  • If you want a thinner soup, add more water or chicken broth. For a thicker soup, let it cook longer or remove the lid during the last 30 minutes of cooking.

Variations

  • Use rotisserie chicken instead of raw chicken breasts for an even easier crock pot chicken noodle soup recipe!
  • For a vegetarian crock pot chicken noodle soup, omit the chicken and double the number of vegetables. Use vegetable broth in place of chicken broth.
  • To make gluten-free crock pot chicken noodle soup, use gluten-free egg noodles or your favorite type of gluten-free pasta.
  • Use other types of pasta, including shells, elbows, or bowties, in place of egg noodles.
  • Add a can of corn, green beans, or peas for extra vegetables.
  • Finish the soup with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for a bright flavor.
  • Top crock pot chicken noodle soup with chopped parsley or green onions for garnish. Serve with crusty bread on the side.
