Easiest Chicken and Noodles Ever

I recently adopted this recipe, this is the original description: "This recipe came with my crockpot when I bought it. It's the easiest thing in the world to make. I take the skin off most of the pieces of the chicken except the wings because that's just too much work for me. You can use regular dried egg noodles but I prefer the frozen ones".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken in crock pot, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and add water.
  2. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours or high 4 to 5 hours.
  3. Remove chicken from crockpot and place on platter.
  4. Turn crockpot to high (if not there already) and add noodles.
  5. Debone and dice chicken into small pieces. Stir chicken into noodles and broth. Cook 30 to 45 minutes more on high, stirring occasionally.

I was very disappointed with this recipe. The noodles didn't cook in the time listed in the recipe and when I cooked them longer, they just ended up sticky. I'll stick with the old fashioned way of making my noodles.

This is a good base recipe for Chicken and Noodles. As others commented I used chicken stock in place of the water and added some celery, carrots and onion. I also cooked the dried noodles separately and added them after thickening the sauce with cornstarch. This is great comfort food! *Made for Photo Swap #8 January 2010*

Mine turned out like chicken noodle soup without the liquid. My noodles were mushy and my husband didn't like it. It had a good taste but my liquid (there wasn't very much) needed thickening. I used chicken broth and it smelled so good all day while the chicken cooked. I added celery and onion at the beginning and then added a can of mixed vegetables at the end. I won't make it again. Thanks for the recipe though.
