I’ve been meaning to post this Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe for a while now, but when my husband and kids came down with sore throats, coughs, and runny noses this past week, I whipped up a batch for them and realized I MUST share this recipe…NOW!
It’s so good, and truly the best homemade chicken soup recipe I’ve ever made. It’s an incredibly easy recipe and the flavors are divine. To keep it on the lighter side, I used chicken breasts, but you can use any cut of chicken you’d like. I often do breasts and drumsticks, since my family prefers the dark meat, and I prefer the breast meat. And the key is using a really good egg noodle. I LOVE this egg pasta from Bionaturae….they taste so fresh and light.
The next time you need some chicken soup, do yourself (and your body) a favor – skip the can and make this Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup instead — it tastes way too good to be just 2 Points per serving. Enjoy!

I use no yolk noodles they don’t fall apart
I love LaaLoosh!! Thank you for coming up with these great recipes!!
OK, so I don’t follow this recipe…pretty poorly written. Never says to cut up or shred the chicken. Last step says to return the chicken to the slow cooker, but no step said to take the chicken out.
This may just be my new favorite soup. It was soooo good last time. I think I prefer it without the noodles since they cooked kinda weird in the slow cooker. Maybe I’ll have some crusty bread or a baked potato with it. Thank you so much! Will definitely be trying more of your recipes soon!
So delicious! Kids and Hubby approved! I used cut up cooked chicken and skipped the whole step of taking it out of the crock pot. Instead, after 6 hours, I just added the noodles and remaining ingredients as directed. It came out WONDERFUL!
I made this soup and it has a sour taste to it before I put lemon in help.
Loved how easy and delicious this is!
How come when I put the nutrition values into my WW app it comes to 5 points as it states above. However when I build the recipe in the app it only comes out to 3 points per cup?
This is cooking right now, and smells Delicious!! Thank you for the recipe
Did you know how many smart points this is? Thank you so much for your recipes
What size of crock pot is best for this recipe? I want to make this in my dorm room and I have a 2.5 quart crock pot right now but will be purchasing a larger slow cooker very soon.
I am making this soup again today. I have made it 3 times in a month. Needless to say I am a bit obsessed. Its my most favorite chicken noodle soup I have ever tried. Love the addition of the dill!
I have become a soup snob if there is such a thing lately. I make all kinds of soups and I’m always looking for a better more flavorful recipe. I was happy with this……Flavorful and “Easy Breeze” Thanks…..looking forward to trying more of your recipes
I am glad I was not the only one to add the lemon juice too early. I added a 1/2 cup of dry Chardonnay so I will see how that comes out. Sure does smell good! Is it dinner time yet? Thanks for the great recipe.
Does it matter if the chicken is frozen?
I too put the lemon in early but I still loved this soup. It was so easy and the three friends I shared this with all loved it. I will not do this soup any other way from now on. Thank you. Your recipes are wonderful and so helpful while on program.
I’m making this tonight! It smells great! Although now I’m worrying about the lemon juice. The recipe says to put everything in but the egg noodles and parsley-so I did that. I came back to see what I needed to do now and it says in the 3rd step to put the lemon juice in. Hopefully it won’t make too much of a difference!
Does slow cooker go on high or low?
I cooked mine on high for 5 hours and it turned out wonderful. I used egg noodles and they got very soggy…any tips on how to avoid this? They kinda dissolved in the soup. Maybe I will use elbow or spirals next time!! SUPER YUMMY SOUP!!
I don’t use egg noodles for that exact reason. I use bow tie pasta.
Wow! I shared this recipe on my page and it has already been shared 316 times! :) I love your recipes, thank you! :)
I didn’t read all the way to the bottom of the instructions and put the lemon juice in with all the other ingredients. Don’t get me wrong, it was still awesome but I could taste the lemon much more since it has been cooking all day. I’ll make this a bunch more.
The chicken is raw Im assuming?
You want it raw because it cooks for so long. One it does cook, it’s super moist and can fall apart with a fork.
Iv been craving chicken noodle soup lately but it’s 105 degrees here and I just got over a cold two weeks ago so I’m not even sick. LOL. Should I still make it?? Haha. Going on the Pinterest board for “make this fall ;)” hehe
The crock pot chicken noodle soup recipe looks delicious. Can’t wait to try it. Thank you for sharing. :)
