Treat Tuesday #157 (Book Birthday Day)
Treat Tuesday - Comforting Chicken & Noodles Crock Pot
*Fall is upon us and that means it is time for some comfort food. Who doesn't like chicken and/or noodles? This is a most delicious meal that both adults and children will enjoy. Of course we all know that crock pot meals are the best when we are back to work.
1 24 ounce package – frozen egg noodles 2 – 14.7 oz cans – cream of chicken soup – sometimes i use 1 can chicken and 1 can cream of celery 1 stick (1/2) cup butter – cut into pieces 1 – 32 oz chicken broth – may want extra to thin out, if too thick. the frozen noodles thicken the broth mixed vegetables – optional – i didn’t use this time Chicken buillon to taste – optional – i add about a teaspoon of better than buillion chicken flavored paste – for a richer chicken flavor 6 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 4 large salt & pepper to taste – can add some parsley too if desire
Salt & pepper chicken breasts and place in the bottom of crock pot.
Spoon soup over the chicken.
Cut butter into several pats and place pieces evenly over soup.
I whisk the bouillon with the broth and pour over soup.
Place lid on pot and turn to low. Cook for 6 hours.
Remove chicken and tear into pieces. Add back to pot.
Now add noodles and if adding veggies add now. Cook for another 2 hours or until noodles are desired tenderness.
I stir a few times during last 2 hours. ( You may want to add more broth to thin out at the end of cooking, as the home made noodles thicken the broth, which we like. )
Sprinkle with parsley and mix in, if using at the end of cooking.
