"This is a classic chicken noodle soup recipe from a recent issue of Good Housekeeping that I'd like to try. Update: I have made this soup and really like it. I did use 3-4 skinless chicken breasts in place of the whole chicken, and I substituted 8 cups of canned chicken broth for the water. If you do this, you might want to add a little less salt unless you use a low-sodium chicken broth. I'm not sure why some reviewers say that their egg noodles dissolve, unless they are using the very fine egg noodles. I use a wide noodle and they are just fine after 20 minutes in the Crock-Pot."

"This is one of the best chicken soups we've ever had. I cubed the cooked chicken, added a few chopped mushrooms and used all low-sodium chicken broth, with no water. As other reviewers suggested, I added the noodles when I turned the crockpot off; they cooked through and didn't get mushy at all. All the proportions of ingredients were perfect, which made this such an extra-good chicken soup recipe. I'll definitely make this again -- we loved it!"
"First time making chicken noodle soup and it was AMAZING! I used 2lbs of split chicken breast with the skin removed and did 4cups water and 4cups broth. Only used one teaspoon salt. My hubby thought it was excellent! Defiently a keeper and so easy to do"
"I love this recipe however I use Orzo instead of the egg noodles they last and hold up well"
"I'm a chicken breast kind of cook most of the time & I used them here, too! Also used homemade chicken broth & substituted lemon pepper for the usual S&P ~ & we had A GREAT TASTING, WONDERFULLY COMFORTING SOUP! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]"
"So yummy! We were all feeling a bit poorly today and this really hit the spot. I only used half an onion, a whole tsp thyme, one tsp oregano and changed the pepper to lemon pepper. I used Recipe #95311 for the noodles. It made it perfect! Thank you."
"Absolutely wonderful! I used 4 cups of water in the crock pot (which is a smallish one), and added 4 cups of chicken broth after stripping the meat from the bones. I also added about 1/2 of a head of garlic (minced) with the onions, and several stalks of parsley on top of the chicken. Delightful! Even my picky stepdaughter ate a bowl or two, and she won't anything I cook! I did strain the stock through cheesecloth and pick through the vegetables to make sure I didn't accidentally include any smaller pieces of bone."
"THIS is how chicken noodle soup is supposed to be! Lots of chicken, lots of noodles and lots of rich flavor. I used 3 1/2 pounds of bone-in skinless chicken thighs. Because my chicken was thighs and had bones, I used the water. That made for a great stock! I halved the amount of salt and thought it was fine. I'd say this makes more than 6 servings, and that's agood thing. ;) I highly recommend this recipe for the chicken noodle soup-lovers out there. Thanx for posting it!"
"Ugh! This recipe is good..but I am a little frustrated that I wasted my time to get to the noodles and now it's ruined. I read the other reviews about the wide egg noodles..so when I turned my crock pot off (after cooking all day) I added the egg noodles and they were literally dough 5-10 minutes later. My 2nd time and 2nd recipe of making chicken noodle and this recipe kind of ruined dinner because of the noodle choice. I also added a can of cream of chicken because the soup was very liquidy before the noodle mistake. I will use this recipe again, but will definitely use a different kind of noodle."
"In love with this recipe! I received a crockpot for my birthday and tried 4 other recipes and decided this slow cooker business was not for me. Then I had a nice 3lb frozen chicken and I said lets try one more recipe before I yard sale this thing. Well I am now in love, thank you! I basically followed this recipe to the letter. My only changes were doing 4 cups of low sodium chicken broth and 4 cups of water. I also followed the noodle suggestion of wating till the crockpot was off to add the noodles. I let them soak for 20 minutes. Pure perfection! My very very picky 1 & 3 year old LOVED it! This is a winner in our book."
"Smelled so wonderful, and I used boneless skinless breasts instead, but 4tsp of salt was way too much it was awful we couldn't even eat it was soo salty! I would make it again but leave the salt out you can always add it to the bowl after!"
"I made this soup using frozen chicken skinless boneless chicken breasts to make it healthier. I was worried it wouldn't come out well but it came out fantastic! The second time I used Brown rice, cooking it separate and adding it to soup when it was done. Again it came out fantastic, everyone loved it even the kids!"
"Really tasty! I used more chicken broth than water by far. I used maybe 1 cup of water. I also added a chicken bouillon cube - it had great flavor. I would highly reccomend using a pasta instead of an egg noodle. As mentioned in other reviews, the egg noodle just disolved. Next time I will use rotini pasata but I would deffinetly make it again. Thanks!"
"This came out quite delicious and I will make it again. My husband thought it was the best batch of chicken noodle soup I ever made, but the rest of us felt it was missing just a little something. Next time I make it, I'll try adding some parsley and a dash of dill to see if that kicks it up a bit. (I did use chicken breasts, so I added concentrated chicken stock base along with the water to make chicken broth, as suggested, and cut back a tiny bit on the salt). Thanks for posting this easy to make soup!"
"The best chicken I've ever made!!!! the family loved it!!!"
"Loved this recipe. So did the husband. I did add some red pepper to the recipe and put in different noodles. The one thing I would recommend is adding the noodles right before you serve them. I loved that I could just put the whole chicken in and worry about cutting it up later. I will be making this recipe again soon!!"
"My family has homemade chicken noodle soup every Thanksgiving and Christmas. Since we have evening holiday meals, the soup is available to have while the meal is being prepared and family members are arriving. We use Kluski noodles in our soup. They hold up very well."
"Personally I would never use a whole chicken and have to hassle with the bones and fat. However turned out great using chicken thighs (only a few bones to pull out yet the little bit of fat adds flavor). Also used some chicken tenders. Cooked on high 4 hrs turned out perfect. Used home style egg pasta. Don't forget crockpot liners for easy clean up."
"Easy recipe with amazing results! Thank you!"
"I LOVE this soup. I use low sodium chicken stock, add sliced mushrooms and cook it on high for 4 - 5 hours. I also make sure I only use real egg noodles. I tried using cheaper noodles, but they turned to mush. This is the best tasting, easiest chicken soup I've ever had."
"This is a great recipe! I did not have problems with my noodles. I used 3 nice sized boneless chicken thighs but ended up only using one to finish the soup, so I have left over chicken for something else! My picky husband (pizza, chicken fingers, take out, etc) even LOVED this soup! Yum Yum! ill make it again and again!"
