Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

Jump to Recipe

Does it get more classic comfort food than Chicken Noodle Soup? I don’t think that it does. But you can’t always stand over a soup pot making sure it’s working. So you need a slow cooker recipe to make it happen. Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup is just what you need. All the delightful flavors of old school chicken noodle soup, with minimal effort.

Using the classic poultry flavor combo of sage, rosemary, thyme, and marjoram gives this that old school hometown flavor you are looking for. I like to use the pre-mixed poultry seasoning and then add in a little more thyme and rosemary. Then the addition of celery salt really brings it all together. Adding in the traditional trinity of mirepoix of celery, carrots and onions balances it all out to be a come back home soup for anyone.

I did not serve any sides or breads with this soup. It is so so hearty and filling that it really does not need any additions. If you were in need of spreading this soup or maybe want to be sure to have leftovers – you could serve it up with a classic buttermilk biscuit or even go simpler with a saltine cracker.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
