Recipe--Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles

It's September, and today happens to be a rainy, cloudy, cooler day.  Perfect weather to read over my cold weather recipes and search for any new ones I can add to my repertoire.

I happened upon this yummy dish while browsing one of the blogs, "Chaos Is Bliss", by Angela on the Facebook page Indiana's Family of Farmers.  Angela is a working wife and mom with young children, and this recipe she shared is from a cookbook published by the organization Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS).  But honestly, can't we all use a busy mom-type shortcut in the kitchen to come up with a good, hearty comfort meal?
Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles

To that end, here is Angela's recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles:
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thawed
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 1/2 t seasoned salt
  • 1/4 t black pepper
  • 1/4 t celery seed
  • 1 package frozen noodles (Angela suggests Reames brand), cooked and drained
Cut up chicken breasts into small pieces; put into bowl of slow cooker.  Mix together cream soups and chicken broth.  Add seasonings; pour over chicken breasts.  Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 7-9 hours.  Fold noodles into chicken mixture; cook for 25-30 minutes longer.

In the photo, it appears that peas and carrots have been added to the chicken and noodles during the cooking process.  I think this is an excellent way to work in the vegetables you need on a daily basis.  Try it and let me know how you like it!
