Inspired by Pinterest ~ Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

Today's post is about a recipe that I stumbled across last week while browsing Pinterest and just couldn't wait to try.  In fact, I almost prepared it last week, but was missing one of the key ingredients for the recipe.  I probably could have searched Pinterest for a replacement option, but I really wanted to keep things as simple as possible and picked up the missing ingredient while running errands over the weekend.

This soup was as delicious as it was simple!  I followed the recipe almost exactly, only making a couple of small changes based on the ingredients I had on hand and the leftovers available in the fridge.

Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup
          adapted from Creatively Domestic

  • 4 cups homemade chicken broth 
  • 10.5 oz can condensed Cream of Chicken Soup 
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced 
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • salt & pepper, to taste 
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken, diced 
  • 1-2 cups leftover buttered noodles
  • Whisk together the chicken broth and cream of chicken soup.  
  • Stir in the celery, onion, carrots and frozen corn. 
  • Season with salt and pepper to your liking.  
  • Cover and set crock pot on high for one hour.  
  • Stir, adjust heat setting to low, and allow to cook for another 4 hours.  
  • Add in the diced chicken and pre-cooked noodles.  Cover and allow to cook for another hour or until chicken and noodles are heated through.  

  • Since I started with frozen corn, I started out with the crockpot on high for the first hour.  If using thawed, canned or fresh corn, cook on low for the entire 4-6 hours. 
  • This recipe is a keeper!  I think next time I will double it!
