Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

Chris downloaded this app. called food on the table. He found 5 new recipes for us to try and what's really neat about this app. is it puts all the ingredients you need on a shopping list. You can just check things off as you get them at store or if you already have them at home. Easy Peasy.

This was our 3rd recipe to try and it was so yummy and simple I had to share it with you. You can find the recipe HERE as well.





Ingredients
1 (2 to 3 pound) chicken whole .... I used 2 chicken breast b/c it's what I had
4 (cup) chicken broth
1/2 (8 oz. package) frozen mixed vegetables.... I accidentally used the whole package, you can never have too many vegetables right? :)
1 (8 oz package) egg noodles, cooked
(to taste) salt & pepper 

Directions
1. Remove and discard giblets from inside of chicken. Place whole chicken in crock pot, add broth, cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 7-8 hours. Remove chicken from crock pot, place on cutting board and let it cool.

2. Add frozen vegetables and spices and cook on low for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Meanwhile, remove chicken from bones, discard fat & bones; and shred meat. Return shredded cooked chicken to crock pot with vegetables.

3. During the last 20 minutes of cooking, add egg noodles to crock pot. Cover and cook for remaining time or until egg noodles are tender. 

**I was running low on time so I cooked the chicken on high for 3 hours, cooked the veggies for 1 hour & cooked the noodles for about 25 minutes. **
