Do I need to cook the chicken before putting it in the crockpot?
Nope! Let the crockpot do the work for you! Always be sure to check the internal temperature of your chicken to make sure it has reached 165° F.
Are dried herbs OKAY to use?
Fresh herbs are always my first choice for the most in depth flavor but dried thyme and dried rosemary are also fine to use of fresh isn’t available.Need an easy winter soup? This Chicken Noodle is for you a healthy, herby and cozy weeknight dinner. Krollskorner.com Click To Tweet
