Crockpot Chicken and Noodles
Crockpot Chicken and Noodles – a comforting, home cooked meal made right in your slow cooker. Creamy noodles and juicy chicken are cooked in a savory sauce for a meal the whole family will love!
Hey there, y’all. I know it’s been been awhile since my last recipe post, and I apologize for that. Even though I’ve been feeling better sickness-wise over the past couple of months, my energy level has seriously tanked.
This pregnancy has truly thrown me for a loop and I am in countdown to baby-time! I’ve got roughly seven weeks to go and could not be more ready to meet our little guy!
Something that has been helping, at least where meal times are concerned, has been my trusty crockpot.
I’ve been making a lot of our slow cooker favorites, including Cheesy Crockpot Tortellini, Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos, and Loaded Potato Soup.
I have gotten so achey and uncomfortable over the past few weeks, and my feet and back throb by the end of the day.
Standing over the stove making dinner feels like torture on my sore body, so being able to throw everything I need to make this Crockpot Chicken and Noodles into the slow cooker at the beginning of the day has been a lifesaver.
These Crockpot Chicken and Noodles are a family favorite and I’ve been making it for awhile now.
I use the same spices in it that I do for my Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings, and it creates a deliciously savory sauce for the chicken and noodles to cook in.
My kids devour this one, and it tastes SO good as leftovers the next day, too.
We usually eat this with either a salad or some roasted veggies like broccoli or asparagus. There are never any complaints at the table when I make this!
Now, this recipe does use cream of chicken soup. While I know not everyone is crazy about cream soups these days, I actually have a brand that I really like and that doesn’t contain a lot of junk in the ingredients list.
If you’ve never tried the Organic Cream of Chicken Soup from Pacific Foods, it’s really good stuff! It has great flavor and I feel a lot better about the ingredients, too.
I like to use it in my Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings recipe, too, and also in Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup.
Crockpot Chicken and Noodles
- 1 1/2- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cans (or boxes) cream of chicken soup, 10.5 oz each, (don't add water)
- 1-2 tsp dried parsley
- ½ tsp seasoned salt
- ¼ tsp poultry seasoning
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 stick butter,, sliced
- 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 8 oz. egg noodles,, uncooked
- Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the crockpot, then top with the soups (no water added) and sprinkle with the spices. Add butter slices to the top, and pour in the chicken broth.
- Cook over low heat for 5-6 hours, or high heat for 3-4 hours. Remove the chicken from the pot and shred into large chunks with two forks.
- Add the shredded chicken back to the pot along with the dry egg noodles and stir. Continue cooking for 30-45 minutes, until noodles are tender. Enjoy!

I’ve never made noodles in a crockpot so I was nervous. I used thawed chicken thighs, soup, chicken broth for the 1st 7hours (my crockpot only has 2 settings). Then I added the breasts from a Walmart rotisserie chicken. At 9 hours I added the noodles. It turned out amazing!
Thanks for this recipe!
could I use turkey breast
I haven’t tried it with turkey breast before, but I think it would work fine. Let me know if you try it!
What about substituting penne instead of egg noodles
Fantastic go to for easy and delicious! A true comfort meal.
Made it and my grandkids loved it as I did. Didn’t have cream of chicken soup so I used cream of mushroom. Wonderfully creamy and delicious. It is a favorite of ours now. Served it with fresh green beans and carrot coins. Thankyou.
This is so yummy that I make it at least once a week now! Question about serving size (for WW reasons); is a serving size one cup for this recipe that serves 8?
Creamy and delicious! My family of picky eaters loves it!
My family loves this. Delicious and easy comfort food
Perfect! Simple, easy and tastes great! Added bonus, the ingredients are likely items you already have! Definitely a fall go-to!
Cheap, easy, and delicious meal for a busy week!
I love this. I’m making again right now for the third time. Thanks.
62 year old guy that hadn’t used a crockpot in decades….bought a new one 10 months ago , using it 3-4 times a month now, learning and loving it.
In the 80’s a sister

A day from now gonna use yer recipe ,…adding frozen peas,green beans,canned mushroom and sliced carrots. Adding no salt (enough in the soups)..but yes on pepper ,Italian seasoning and garlic powder on the chicken…. Been looking for a recipe online like this for a while…That I can adjust to my personal tastes lol
…Prefer boneless/skinless thighs…Non shredded….betting will work out just fine….And just bookmarked yer site ,
Do you cook the noodles 30-45 minutes on low or high?
Hi Holly, good question. I usually turn it to low when adding the noodles.
Can chickpea pasta be used as a substitute for the egg noodles? Any other modifications that would be needed if I were to do so?
Hi Alison, I use chickpea noodles frequently but I haven’t tried them in this recipe. If you choose to use them, I would cook them separately (since you need to rinse them) and then add to the chicken/gravy right before serving.
This looks delicious and so easy to make in the crockpot. I’ll definitively try your recipe. Congrats on your new baby.
Chicken and noodles have always been one of m favorite comfort dishes. I can’t wait to try this for tomorrow’s dinner!
This is an easy and comforting dish! It’s great that it’s made in the crockpot for easy prep and cleanup.
This looks like a good comforting dinner meal for when you are need of a good home cooked meal!
OOo yum, I love when I can use my crockpot. This looks amazing!
