Chicken and Noodles is the ultimate comfort food!  It’s creamy, warm and satisfying.  We’ve all had chicken and noodles in some form or another (like chicken noodle soup or a Creamy Chicken Noodle Casserole) or even Old Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings.

It’s just one of those dishes you turn to when you want a hug in a bowl.

I love chicken noodle soup but most of all, I love the goodies in the soup.  Yes, I am one of those people who scoop out all of the best parts of the soup so I basically end up eating a bowl of chicken, noodles and veggies.

Crock Pot Chicken and Noodles features juicy chicken, vegetables and tender noodles in an easy creamy broth cooks up effortlessly in your slow cooker. This is the perfect way to use up any leftover chicken (or turkey) or even veggies you may happen to have in your fridge and takes just minutes to prep!

That must be why I love this Crock Pot Chicken and Noodles recipe so much, it’s all noodles and chicken with just a bit of broth!  It’s almost like serving up pasta that tastes like chicken noodle soup… so YUMMY!

Slow cooker chicken and noodles can easily be make with leftover turkey or chicken and of course turkey broth if you prefer.  It’s a great way to turn leftover chicken into a meal that your whole family is going to love.

I leave the chicken in pretty big pieces (1″ or bigger) so they don’t fall apart in the slow cooker.

If you don’t have cooked chicken, you can most certainly use raw chicken breasts.  Place 4 raw chicken breasts, onions, seasonings, soup and broth into the slow cooker. Cook on high 4-5 hours or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken and shred or chop, continue the recipe as directed.

While the chicken is cooking, I usually leave my veggies/noodles out to defrost slightly.  I use frozen veggies because they’re really quick and easy (and sometimes I even freeze my own veggies) but you can also use any kind of fresh veggies you have on hand.

Carrots, celery, mushrooms, peppers and broccoli are all great options!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles is the most comforting dish. Tender chicken, vegetables and noodles in an easy broth cooks up effortlessly in your crock pot. This is the perfect way to use up any leftover chicken (or turkey) or even veggies you may happen to have in your fridge and takes just minutes to prep!

I use Reames noodles which can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store. Reames egg noodles are frozen noodles and they’re quite thick so they take a while to cook.

If you don’t happen to have access to frozen egg noodles, you can certainly use dry large egg noodles and boil them on the stove.

You’ll want to cook them about 3 minutes less than indicated on the package.  Add them to the slow cooker for the last 15 minutes of cooking.

Canned cream of chicken soup makes this dish extra quick however you can certainly make your own homemade Cream of Chicken soup if you prefer!

Crock Pot Chicken and Noodles are the perfect way to use up any leftover chicken (or turkey) or even veggies you may happen to have in your fridge and takes just minutes to prep!

The difference between chicken and noodles and chicken noodle soup is mainly consistency.  Chicken and noodles is much thicker, almost like a casserole. If you prefer your chicken and noodles to be thinner, you can add 2 cups of extra broth.

We love this as is or to serve it over mashed potatoes or with homemade dinner rolls and a fresh side salad for a total bowl of comfort.

  1. Hi Holly, where do I start, let’s just say, excellent taste and consistency! I used raw chicken breast, homemade broth, homemade condensed soup. and homemade spatzle in place of the egg noodles, I should have doubled the spatzle but the nutmeg flavor of the spatzle worked incredibly well with this. Only thing I forgot to add was the parsley, as I was rushing to taste this. Very much liked by the entire family! Thank you again, Holly, for a great recipe, worthy of 10 stars.

  2. Hi Holly, this looks and sounds very good! But I will change up is the noodles, I will use homemade spätzle, also homemade will be the broth and soup. I will come back with a review soon :)

  3. Have you ever frozen this for later? Wondering how the noodles would hold up? I’m needing to provide a frozen meal for a family and this sounds delicious.

  4. I am not very suave when it comes to changing a recipe. How long would you cook on the stove? When would you add the noodles on the stove?

    • I haven’t tried this on the stove top but I would cook the onions in a bit of butter/oil until tender. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer until the noodles are tender (about 20-25 minutes). Please let us know how it goes if you try it!

  5. Do you think I could just make in a cast iron pot on the stovetop?

  6. Just made for dinner today. It was really good. A couple of things I need to change. I used a smaller crock so it was really full, will use larger one next time. We like more chicken in ours so I will be adding in more when I make it. We found our noodles at just regular grocery store frozen sections. It was a smaller bag so I did add about 1 1/2 cups dry egg noodles. Again thanks for this delicious recipe.

  7. I am making this tonight. I only had 4 cups of broth so I had to substitute water but I put 2 chicken cubes in, hope it turns out.

  8. I’m cooking this right now using raw chicken. Which turns out is a really good thing otherwise I may have eaten it all by now! SMELLS SO GOOD. Only 45 minutes left!

  9. I made your chicken stew in the crock pot tonite and my family loved it , onlybthing different was i used small can whole potatoes in it , had no pasta, and even my fussy grandson liked it , so thanks worked out great on this brisk very cold nite .it warmed your soul. Yummy.

  10. And if so, to make time go by quicker with this recipe, can we seer the onions in olive oil before putting them on th soup?

  11. Can I convert the crockpot recipe to stovetop so it’s not as long as a process? 

  12. This sounds Delish and will be making this after payday on Thursday!! Love all your recipes!!!!!!

  13. Can I use canned chicken? Canned veggies? Should I add them later in the process?

  14. Just made this for the first time.  It was a great hit with my family.   Perfect meal on a chilly winter night.  Thanks for the recipe! 

  15. This taste fantastic!. My grand daughter, husband and I almost ate the whole crock pot ful! It is thick and rich! Thank you so very much for sharing. I have used so many of your recipes!

  16. I am making this recipe now. I bought my Reames frozen noodles from Kroger. It looks great. I hope my family will enjoy it.

  17. If you do this with frozen chicken breast frozen turkey? I froze some after Thanksgiving

  18. I have the frozen reames noodles. Do I put them in frozen or thawed out?

  19. What size crock pot did you use?

  20. Do I have to cook the chicken first?

    • I have only made this with cooked chicken. I’m sure it would be fine if you used raw boneless chicken breasts as they don’t take long to cook and should be done by the 3 hour mark. You’ll just want to ensure they’re cooked through before adding the frozen noodles.

  21. Can’t eat just one bowl, it’s that tasty that you keep going back for more. Everyone i had over that day loved it. Made it with chicken and now I plan on using leftover Thanksgiving turkey! I was able to find the noodles in the frozen food section at my local Wal-Mart.

  22. I Enjoy It Crock Pot Chicken And Noodles

  23. Yes, but regular noodles aren’t as good as the frozen ones. They also won’t need cooked nearly as long. You will just need to keep an eye on them to check for doneness. 

  24. I couldn’t find the frozen noodles. can I use regular egg noodles? I thought I saw something about it in here, but can’t find it anymore.

  25. can I use regular egg noodles??? 

  26. I’m curious, why do you need to cook the chicken on high for 3 hours with the onion, if it’s already cooked?

  27.  Could not find the Rams noodles in the frozen  for the crockpot chicken soup am I looking wrong  I wanted to try the chicken noodle soup in the crockpot 

  28. Have not made yet but planning on it. Did you cook this on low or high?
