  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 sticks celery chopped
  • 2 medium carrots peeled & sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1.5 pounds chicken thighs boneless/skinless
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 bay leaves (optional)
  • 2 cups uncooked egg noodles
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley chopped


  • Prep your ingredients.
  • Add all the ingredients to your slow cooker except for the noodles, salt & pepper, and parsley.
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
  • Take the chicken out and cut it up or shred it with two forks. Add the cut-up chicken back in, along with the egg noodles. Cook until the noodles are tender (I put the slow cooker on high), about 15 minutes or so.
  • Season the soup with salt & pepper as needed (I added a fair bit of salt). Serve with fresh parsley sprinkled over top (add about a tablespoon or more... eyeballing it is fine).


  • Anything over about a pound, up to around two pounds of chicken will work.
  • You may use chicken breasts, but be aware that they're more likely to dry out the longer you cook them.
  • This is the 7-quart Crockpot I used for this recipe.
  • You can add some freshly squeezed lemon juice at the end if you'd like this to be a lemony chicken soup.
  • You may need to add more chicken broth when reheating the soup (the noodles soak up more liquid the longer you leave it). If you plan on freezing the soup, I suggest doing it prior to adding the noodles.
  • Other cooking methods: Try the stovetop version or the Instant Pot version of this recipe.
