A crock pot cross between a stew and a soup. Will banish the dreary day blues. Add another can of chicken broth to make it soupier. Enjoy with homemade bread. YUM!

Very good! Good flavors and easy to make. I followed the directions almost exactly except that I used garlic salt instead of plain salt. Next time I will omit the broccoli. It was good with it, but the broccoli did not add to the dish. I only used one can of chicken broth and next time I will use two to make it more of like a soup.
Everyone gave this dish 5 stars. I did sub the water with chicken broth (because I love that stuff), and omitted the broccoli. Otherwise, I made as directed and soon discovered that this really wasn't even going to serve 3 people. I had to double the broth and add more chicken and noodles to get 5 servings. Yes, we are piggies and our serving sizes are a little larger than most. We all agreed that this goes into my favorites cookbook. Thank you!
I actually made this about a week ago and forgot to review it. I made this as directed except that I didn't use the crockpot. It was made on the stove top. This is a very, very good soup. I used broccoli and "No Yolks" noodles. With all of the fresh veggies and the broth you aren't even aware that it has canned soup in it, it just adds some body to the stock and good background flavor.
