A Healthy Crockpot Chicken Noodles Soup is the first soup I crave once Autumn arrives.

Another favorite crockpot recipe for Fall is this Slow Cooker Chicken Chili.

Busy Schedules + Crockpots = perfect match!

Creating this Healthy Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

Mirepoix is the vegetable base of most soups and is the base of a good chicken noodle soup!

Mirepoix is a combination of chopped carrots, celery and onions used to add flavor and aroma to stocks, sauces, soups and other foods.

The proportions (by weight) for making mirepoix are 50% onions, 25% carrots and 25% celery. LOVE IT! Hope you enjoy.

How to make Healthy Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

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.

I prefer wide egg noodles, but almost any noodle works in this recipe. Noodles can be added in 30 minutes prior to eating, or you can cook them separately on the side.
