Warm up this winter with Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup! This soup is delicious, comforting and conveniently all made in the slow cooker!
Have I mentioned lately how much I love my slow cooker? haha. I know I say it ALL the time, but it’s so true. The time and headaches it saves me during dinner time is tremendous. And all the things you can cook in it is crazy. Crazy in a good way! 😉
There are many slow cooker recipes that have other steps you have to do outside of the slow cooker. Not that it bothers me at all but I know for some it does. Luckily, with this Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup recipe everything is done in the slow cooker. The noodles are even cooked right inside!
This soup turned out creamy, dreamy and so delicious. All the different textures from the carrots, peas, chicken and noodles made it so good. My kids chowed right down on this too. I think I’m going to make a tradition out of this lovely soup. When we’re sick, when it’s freezing cold outside, or just any ol’ time I feel like an amazing bowl of goodness, this is what I’m making.
