Chicken Noodle Soup

Sundays are our days for soups… we put them on early and then by dinner time we’ve got a delicious hot meal all ready and waiting for us to enjoy. We’ve tried several soups since we began our culinary adventures with our new crockpot… but up until now we had yet to try one of the most universally known, and loved soups… You know which one I’m talking about… that soup with chicken-y goodness that your mum used to make you… the soup that made everything feel a little bit better… Chicken Noodle Soup.

First we got the gang together, celery, carrots, onions, broth, bay leaves, and seasoning

We cooked our chicken a little the first time... next time... we're going to keep it raw.

Now it’s the waiting game… Cook on low in the crockpot for 8 hours (or 4 hours on high, but that could leave your chicken tough… and in my opinion there’s nothing worse than tough chicken…)

When the 8 hours are up, remove the bay leaves...
When you are 7hrs 30 minutes in, remove the bay leaves…
Time for noodles...
