Crock Pot Recipe
I’m always looking for quick, easy, yummy recipes. A crock pot recipe is great! The less I have to do with it, the better. When you can put it all in one pot, have it cook all day and turn out yummy… well that’s just perfect for me. We’re all busy, we need a great crock pot recipe like this one.
Creamy Chicken and Noodles
This recipe calls for frozen noodles. I had never heard of frozen noodles but was able to find one at Walmart. Just one brand but they were the frozen egg noodles that the recipe calls for. If you can’t find these in your grocery store, you could use regular noodles. There’s enough liquid in the recipe that the noodles should cook. I would just watch so the noodles don’t get too mushy and cut the cooking time down. Otherwise, you could boil your noodles ahead of time and just mix them in at the end or just serve the creamy chicken over the top.
The consistency was just a little thin but not quite soup. It would be perfect in a bread bowl. The first night, I served it with crackers. When I served it for left overs, the liquid had absorbed a bit more so it was a bit thicker. Either way, it was delicious!
Let me know how you like it and if there’s other options that you add to it.
3-4 frozen chicken breasts
2 cans cream of chicken soup
42 oz chicken broth
24 oz package of frozen egg noodles
Add frozen chicken breasts to crock pot with cream of chicken soup, and chicken broth.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
An hour before serving, remove chicken and shred.
Return chicken to slow cooker.
Stir in frozen egg noodles.
Cover and cook for 1 more hour.Serve
This is a great recipe I found from In the Kitchen.

A simple recipe.. would love to try 🙂
This is a wonderful recipe. I made the mistake of sharing the finished dish with some neighbors and now they are all asking for more of it. It was easy and very good
Great! That is good to hear…except having to make more. 😉
Is it a total of 8 hours or 9 after chopping the chicken? Wasn’t sure if you chopped at 7 hours.
Total of 8 hours…so at 7 hours, remove chicken and shred. Then cook for 1 more. 🙂
Hi, I was just wondering what your suggestion would be if I wanted to just cook the noodles and no chicken? I can’t seem to find a recipe like that anywhere but I noticed you have all the same ingredients I was planning on using. Do you think I should just put it all in together for an hour?
That should work. You can always cook it longer if need be. These particular noodles are frozen so look on the package to see what recommended cooking time is or how to prepare and that might help you.

This is a wonderful basic recipe that you can really make your own. I make the original recipe the base and build off of it: I add tons of spices; oregano, rosemary, thyme, parsley, onion powder, bay leaf, pepper and garlic. I also add lots of veggies: celery, onion, carrot, and mushrooms. I use chicken thighs just because I think the flavor is more than breast and also use normal egg noodles, I just throw them in at the last half hr. So I suppose my version is more like a creamy chicken noodle soup, but boy is it delicious!
What is normal egg noodles, Not frozen? The ones you boil in water normally? If so, you are saying they cook fine in the crockpot?
Yes, regular noodles that you would typically boil. I have not tried it. You’d have to experiment and maybe add a bit more water when cooking. Otherwise, cook ahead of time and add at the end is another option. I have not tested though and have only used the frozen noodles.

How long do I need to cook the chicken if it is thawes?
You’d have to experiment with the time. All crockpots are different too. But I haven’t tried making this with thawed chicken.
