While canned chicken noodle soup is fine in a pinch, nothing beats the depth of flavor you can have with homemade chicken noodle soup. Making it in a crock-pot makes it extremely simple, and the amount of preparation necessary is minimal. For one of the best chicken soup recipes you can serve your family, try this crock-pot chicken noodle recipe.
Tips and suggestions: If desired, you can also set the crock-pot to low and double the amount of cooking time. However, when cooking the noodles, you should still cook them on high for 20 minutes or so. Once cooked, this soup will keep in the refrigerator for up to four days. As a broth-based soup, it also freezes well. All you need to do is thaw the soup in the refrigerator for a day and heat like normal. For this noodle soup and chicken recipe, mixing breasts and thighs will give you a deeper flavor as will using all chicken broth instead of combining water and chicken broth.
