Delicious Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles

November 03, 2021

This is the easiest (and most delicious!) slow cooker chicken and noodles recipe you'll find! 

OK my friends! You KNOW how I love a good crock pot meal. Many of you have tried the chicken and dumpling, creamy chicken and wild rice and mac and cheese crock pot recipes and love them as much as I do.

Be prepared for a new favorite. This one may inch out my chicken and wild rice. It's that good.

This chicken and noodle recipe calls for the thicker noodles, so it's more of a hearty meal than a typical chicken soup. If you like a creamier "soup" that you can pile high over mashed potatoes, this one is for you! 

I found this recipe floating around on Facebook years ago, but there was no source. 

I could tell from the photo that there was more to it than the few ingredients listed. So I added a few and it was absolutely delicious.

If you're looking for a yummy, cozy fall or winter meal, this is one is perfect! 

For a super easy dinner, pair it with some warm bread and you're set!

This recipe only takes two to three hours to make if you cook it on high:

Here are the ingredients for this delicious crock pot creamy chicken and noodle soup: 

One pound chicken breast 
(more or less depending on your preference)
Two cans cream of chicken soup
Two cups chicken broth 
(I added slightly less than that for a creamier base -- again, your preference) 
One stick butter 
One 24 ounce package frozen egg noodles
 (I used the Reames brand)
One tablespoon parsley 
One tablespoon minced onion  
1/2 tablespoon pepper

It really couldn't be much easier. I combined all ingredients but the noodles and cooked on high in the crock pot for 2.5 hours. 

I removed the chicken to shred it with two forks, then put it back in along with the frozen egg noodles. 

Let it cook for about 30-45 more minutes (taste your noodles to see if they're done to your liking) and that's it! 


Possible additions and changes to this yummy chicken and noodle recipe: 

  • Usually I salt my food but there is no need with this dish. Next time I may try using low sodium chicken broth.
  • I think I could get away with less butter as well. But why mess with a good thing? 😂
  • Add some frozen vegetables in with the noodles to make it even more hearty.
  • Next time I'm going to try adding mushrooms as well.
Make sure you use the thicker egg noodles -- the regular thin ones in the pasta aisle would fall apart. 

The frozen noodles are what make this sooooo good.

You know I won't steer you wrong when it comes to recipes, especially Crock Pot versions! This one is absolutely delicious and was a breeze to make. 

Let me know if you try it!

**P.S. You can find my pretty dinnerware here -- I bought the bowls ten years ago and they've held up beautifully. I recently treated myself to more of the dishes for my birthday. They were on sale and may still be!

  1. Oh my, that does look delish, and I just know it actually is. Reames noodles are similar to home-made. Only problem, my husband won't touch noodles. So I never get them, either.

  2. These are the best. Serve over mashed potatoes. :)

  3. This is the exact recipe for Pioneer Woman Chicken & Noodles except hers is an instant pot recipe. It's SOOOOO good in the instant pot because the chicken is done perfectly and not over cooked like a crock pot sometimes does.

  4. I’ve never been able to find frozen egg noodles. Sounds delicious!
