Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 quart 32 oz chicken stock (see NOTES)
  • 1 cup sliced fresh carrots
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cut green beans
  • 3/4 cup cream see NOTES
  • 1 1/2 cups wide egg noodles
  • 1/2 tsp salt optional
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

OPTIONAL HERB ADD-INS

  • 1/2 tsp dill -OR- 1 bay leaf

Instructions

  • Place chicken, stock, pepper, carrots and optional herb add-ins (if using) into a 4-5 quart slow cooker.
  • Cover and set on high and cook for 2.5-3 hours, or until chicken is done.
  • Add the egg noodle and the green beans. Continue cooking on high for an additional 30 minutes or until noodles are almost done.
  • Add the cream and if the soup needs it, the salt.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook for 15 minutes just to heat the cream.

Notes

My recommendation for a tasty store-bought stock is College Inn Bold. Also Knorr concentrated and Better Than Boullon.
You can use half-n-half, light or heavy cream. Heavy cream is strongly recommended. Milk and especially lower-fat milks won't produce a tasty soup.
