Crockpot Chicken and Noodles (Comfort Food at it’s Best)

As I have mentioned ten thousand times in the last week, I am itching for fall weather.

Since I cannot change the weather, I can start cooking comfort food. Food that reminds me of fall.

This is another dinner to add to our list of easy recipes and it is perfect for all you busy moms out there.   Add this one to your back to school menu plan!

(Do you struggle with getting dinner on the table? I can teach you how to meal plan in 5 simple steps.)

crockpot recipes

Ingredients:

  • 4-6 chicken breasts
  • 1 bag egg noodles
  • 2 (10 oz) cans cream of chicken
  • 14-15 oz can chicken broth or stock
  • salt and pepper to taste

Place the chicken breasts (frozen is ok) in the crockpot.

Pour the two cans of cream of chicken over top.

Pop the lid on it and cook for 4-6 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.

While this is cooking your children and husband will tell you it smells like the best dinner they will ever have. Promise.

chicken recipes

When the chicken is done cooking, start a large pot on the stove to boil water for the noodles.

Boil noodles according to the bag directions.

While the noodles are going,  remove the chicken from the crockpot and dice or shred.

Add the can of chicken broth (or stock) to the soup that is still in the crockpot and whisk until well combine.

Add your shredded chicken back to the crock.

Drain the noodles once they are done cooking.

Toss them into the crockpot.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Stir the noodle, meat and soup mixture until everything is well coated.

Plate it up.

If you have time, serve it with a dinner salad and hot rolls. We were starving so we just ate the chicken and noodles.

Yum!

      The broth gets mixed with the soup after you’ve taken the chicken out of the crockpot to shred it.

      The instructions for that are right above the picture of the whisk in the crockpot. Sorry, I know sometimes things get lost with all the pictures. :)

      Thanks for taking the time to ask.

      Personally, I would not freeze the noodles, but the meat and sauce will freeze just fine.

      So, just make enough noodles for the amount of meat and sauce you will be using at that time.

    I have made this and it is such a great meal! It’s good to make if you are taking a meal to someone. I’ve even used it as a start to my chicken noodle soup. I just add extra broth and carrots sometimes.

  2. Chris says

    Thanks for this recipe. Reminds me of my mom’s recipe but so much easier and just as tasty. I like to serve it over mashed potatoes.

  3. Catherine says

    This was easy and so yummy! I have always baked the chicken with the soup in the oven and served it over rice. This was a great alternative and I love that I can use the crockpot. My family loved it. Thanks for the recipe and Happy New Year!

    We put ours over rice, My grandma used to use the frozen egg noodles and out it over mashed potatos. My kids like it with cream of mushroom too. My son always adds peas to his. Thanks for sharing

    Crystal – we love this recipe. Just a quick question – the egg noodles you use for this, are they the 8 or 12 oz bags? We have seen both, and aren’t sure what the standard is. *blush* Thanks!

    To be honest…. I don’t know what all the rave reviews are about. This was not very good. Neither my husband, nor myself, liked this even a little bit. I will be tossing out the recipe. Yuck.

  7. Madeline says

    Crystal-
    Thank you for responding. I didn’t care for the taste, or the texture. It was bland, and just wasn’t appealing, and the texture was like mush, even with the noodles cooked al dente. I appreciate the amount of time it takes to keep up a blog like this, but I think I’m going to stop following it. This is the third or fourth recipe I’ve tried of yours that my husband and I didn’t care for. I guess we just have different tastes :/

    I do respect the time and effort it takes to do this, and I want to make that clear, and I hope you don’t feel like I’m just bashing you and your site.

      That`s quite rude. I believe the saying goes “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all….”. Anyway, my family enjoys this meal. And all of the others we have tried from this site. Thanks for making dinner easier!!

      • says

        I am so glad you’ve enjoyed the meals and recipes you’ve tried.

        It is so seldom that I get comments where someone is unhappy with one of my recipes. Honestly, it is hard to tell where things could have gone wrong. If the recipe is followed and they do not over cook or under cook it and if they salt and pepper according to their taste, I really have no idea why it would come out any different unless it is the quality of the brand, etc. No clue.

        I make this recipes once a month and we LOVE it every time.

        I appreciate your kind words. Thanks for stopping by.

    thanks!

    I am new to the whole crockpot thing. We are a family of two, does it make a difference in the cooking if I cut the recipe in half?

    • says

      Yes, it will cook faster. A crockpot cooks best when 1/2 to 2/3 of the way full. So, if you put fill the crockpot up less than half of the way, it will cooker faster than if it were 2/3 full. If you will the crockpot to the rim, it will take substantially longer for your food to cook.

      If I were cooking for 2 ppl, I would just use a 4 qt slow cooker and be mindful of the fact that it will cook faster than normal. Play with it on a Saturday when you are home to monitor it.

      Hope that helps.

    This dinner was amazing! It was a hit with everyone which is hard in my household. I didn’t have enough chicken so I used tuna fish. The chicken and tuna were melt in your mouth after 7 hours. Can’t wait to make it next week, again.
