I love this dish. Seriously!♥

Only a slow-cooker is needed. That’s it. No extra pot for cooking pasta, yippee! OK, I’m easy to please, but really!

Back in the day, I really did make this as a casserole in the oven…you know, boiling the noodles, pre-cooking chicken, then dumping everything into a big dish and baking it in the oven for little while until bubbly. Delish – but took a lot of effort to make. Then I made a dish called Easy Crock Pot Spaghetti, that calls for the pasta to be cooked right in the slow cooker. Amazing!!  In the tiniest of ways, at least regarding pasta cooking, my life changed.

For a little color and variety, add your favorite veggies to the pot when adding the chicken back in to warm. I roll with corn and roasted red peppers, but that’s just me.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 LBS boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 can Cream of Chicken Soup, undiluted
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp seasoning salt or Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 2 tsps dried minced onion
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 TBSP (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, sliced
  • 34 cups chicken broth
  • 8 oz dry egg noodles, uncooked
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker and cover with the soup. Sprinkle the spices over the soup, and top with slices of butter. Pour 3 cups of chicken broth over all of the ingredients.
  2. Set the slow cooker to Low for 7 – 8 hours or on High for 3 – 4 hours.
  3. When the chicken is cooker thru (165 degrees internal temperature on a meat thermometer), remove the chicken from the slow cooker to a plate. When cooled slightly, use two forks to shred the chicken.
  4. Meanwhile, add the egg noodles to the slow cooker and stir to cover the noodles with cooking liquid. Add additional chicken broth if needed, 1/4 cup at a time, if there is not enough liquid in the pot to cook the pasta.  If on Low setting, turn the slow cooker to high and cook the pasta for 15-20 minutes until tender.
  5. When pasta is cooked, add the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker and cook until heated thru.
  6. Serve hot.


Notes

Note – Herbed Cream of Chicken Soup or Cream of Mushroom Soup are delicious alternatives to the Cream of Chicken Soup.

Note – Boneless, skinless chicken thighs can be substituted for the chicken breasts
