Easy (and Healthy!) Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

Ra Chicken Soup Inflammatory

This chicken noodle soup uses yolk-free noodles that are made with whole grains, and it’s a little heavier on veggies than most. It also uses a no-salt added chicken stock to keep the sodium more reasonable. It’s perfect for when you’re caring for someone with a cold or the flu, or anytime you need some comfort food.

Ingredients

1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breast
4 medium carrots, sliced into coins
4 celery stalks, sliced
1 small yellow onion, diced
8 cups chicken stock, unsalted
½ tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp celery salt
½ tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried parsley or 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
12 oz whole-wheat, yolk-free egg white noodles

Directions
  1. In the order listed above, add all ingredients except noodles to a 6-quart slow cooker, and cook on high for 4 hours (or on low for 6-8 hours).
  2. Bring 5 quarts of water to boil over high heat on the stove. Boil noodles according to package instructions (typically around 10-12 minutes). Drain.
  3. Taking lid off of slow cooker, use 2 forks to shred chicken.
  4. Add noodles to slow cooker, replace lid, and continue to cook for another 15 minutes on low.
