On cold days and on days when you’re not feeling well, there’s nothing like the taste of chicken soup. Chicken soup is comfort food, and the comfort a bowl of this soup brings is big enough to lift your sagging spirit and make you feel better. This also makes chicken soup food you can enjoy all year round.
This slow-cooked chicken noodle soup is a version of that beloved comfort food that almost literally cooks itself. It’s perfect for those busy weekdays when all you need to do upon coming home is to relax and tuck in some dinner without worrying about cooking the dinner itself.
Setting up your crockpot for this slow-cooked chicken noodle soup before you leave for work or school in the morning guarantees you’ve got something great to eat for dinner when you get back home. Just throw all the ingredients except for the noodles in the crockpot and off you go. Once you get back home, add the noodles to the pot, and you’ll have your bowl of soup in almost no time at all.
