Best Crockpot Recipe ever!

Here is by far the best crock pot recipe I have ever come across.  It's easy, and if you planned ahead you could always have the ingredients for this on-hand.  I love crock pot meals as then I don't have to break away from what I'm doing to make dinner...it's already cooking!  Unfortunately, it's been my experience that good recipes for the crock pot are few and far between.  I was bowled over when I tasted this one....superb!  This is a permanent recipe in my collection now.

Crock-Pot Chicken and Noodles

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used frozen)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 stick of butter
2 15 oz cans chicken broth
24 oz. frozen egg noodles

Cook chicken, soup, butter, and broth in crock-pot on low for 6-7 hours.

Take chicken out and shred.

Put chicken back in; add noodles and cook on low for 2 hours. Stir a few times while cooking.

I served this over mashed potatoes, with a side of green beans

I copied this recipe and I did not use frozen chicken breasts (mine were thawed) and I did not make mashed potatoes to go with it but you could as there is lots of gravy/sauce.  I just had green beans with it. I did not get tired of it at all.  It was wonderful!  I'm sure it's not the healthiest recipe around but on a cold, wintery night with the wind howling outside this is the best comfort food you could ask for! 
P.S.  Do not use anything but those frozen noodles in the freezer section or it won't turn out nearly as good if at all.  I love those frozen noodles and never use anything else when noodles are called for.
Happy trails and good eatin'!


  1. I bet that would be delicious with homemade cream of chicken soup. I wonder if I could use homemade noodles that have been in the freezer too. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Yum. Looks tasty, and I like that it's a crockpot recipe; easy, peasy :)

    I'll have to look for the frozen noodles. I've not seen them before.

    Hope you're doing well, and staying warm .

    Smiles :)

  3. I have never made a dish like this in my crock pot and it sounds good. I make roast of brisket and add veggies during the last hour and like that. Frozen noodles? I'll have to look for those! Thanks for the recipe! Hugs!

  4. Hello from New York. I am visiting you via Helen's beautiful UK post. Isn't it great to have such international comments?

    Yes, the UK Country Living magazine is very different from its USA offspring. I've loved the UK version for decades now, and think that it's less commercial than the one we have here in the States, and also seems to have a closer connection to the creative community.

    Of course, time brings change to everything, but I have wonderful memories of my visits to the London CL Fairs (the spring versions) and would still love to attend one of their Christmas Fairs.

    it was also fun to visit your site. Hoping you might enjoy clicking over to mine.


  5. Thank you for your lovely comment!

    My favorite fair isle book is a sort of classic...I bought my copy back in 1988. It's Alice Starmore's Book of Fair Isle Knitting. (She has many books about various types of traditional knitting.

    Cheers, xo

  6. I make something similar to this. Mine uses cream cheese and makes almost an al fredo sauce. I usually serve it with pasta and that makes a meal. Don't you just love crock pot meals?


Thank you so much for stopping by and for commenting. Comments are "grist for the mill" and I appreciate each and every one of them!
