Chicken – I’m using boneless, skinless chicken breasts in this dish. They shred up nicely after slow cooking! You could also use boneless chicken thighs.
Cream of Chicken Soup – Try my homemade cream of chicken soup recipe! It’s even better than the canned stuff, though it is a bit more work. You can use the canned soup for this recipe if you want to keep things easy!
Chicken Gravy Mix – You should be able to find a packet of this mix at most any grocery store. You’ll just use the powder – no need to prepare the gravy.
Chicken Broth – For cooking the chicken and noodles.
Frozen Egg Noodles – Any grocery store will sell frozen egg noodles in the freezer section.
Frozen Peas and Carrots – These add a pop of color and sweetness. No need to thaw them first either.
Salt & Pepper – You can add as much or as little of this as you want to taste.
What We Love About This Recipe:
- The chicken turns out tender, juicy, and full of flavor after slow cooking.
- The noodles cook right in the crockpot – no need to boil them separately.
- This has soup vibes, since you eat it in a bowl with a spoon, but it’s quite thick and more hearty than soup.
In the market for a new slow cooker? We love this 7 quart Crockpot. It’s simple to use, cooks evenly, and is very budget friendly. Plus, it has a 4 1/2 star rating with over 5,000 reviews on Amazon!
How to Make Crockpot Chicken and Noodles:
Chicken: To get started you’ll add the chicken to a 6 quart slow cooker.
Topping: Whisk together the cream of chicken soup and packet of gravy mix in a bowl. Spread it over the chicken in the crockpot. Pour in the broth.
Slow Cook: Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or until the chicken shreds easily with a fork.
Shred: Remove the chicken from the crockpot and shred it up with a couple of forks. Whisk together the sauce in the crockpot and then return the chicken to the crockpot.
Noodles: You can now add in the frozen noodles and frozen vegetables with the chicken and sauce. Top it off with a few pats of butter.
Slow Cook: Cover the pot back up and continue cooking on low for 1 to 1 ½ hours or until the noodles have finished cooking through and are tender.
We like this recipe to be thick and creamy and that’s how it should come out. But if you want this to be more of a soup you can just add extra chicken broth after cooking until you get the desired consistency!
Serve: We like to season this simply with some salt and freshly cracked pepper before serving. It goes great with these easy air fryer frozen dinner rolls or go the homemade route with our quick dinner rolls!
Chicken – Chicken thighs will work just as well in place of chicken breasts.
Noodles – Dried egg noodles should work in place of frozen, though we haven’t tested this ourselves.
Veggies – If you don’t’ have frozen peas and carrots, you can stir in a can of peas and carrots towards the end of cooking. They’ll only need 10 minutes or so to warm up.
Seasoning – Feel free to add in additional seasoning, such as poultry seasoning, celery salt, turmeric, or some garlic and onion powder. These can all be added to the chicken soup mix.
If you have any leftovers you can keep it stored in an airtight container for up to 3 to 4 days. It should thicken up and might even taste better on the second day!
Yes, you could freeze leftovers but the noodles may not hold up that well. They may get a bit mushy after having been frozen, then cooked, and frozen again.
