Crockpot Creamy Chicken Noodles - Savor the comfort

Crockpot Creamy Chicken Noodles

I love crockpot recipes, especially this time of year. There’s just something wonderful about walking in the door after a long day and smelling something delicious bubbling away in the slow cooker.

No Canned Soup!

Finding crockpot recipes without “cream of this” or “cream of that” soup isn’t easy! I’m not a fan of canned soups due to their sodium content, not to mention how many are using high fructose corn syrup which is something we try to avoid. So, when coming up with this recipe, I wanted to get that creaminess without opening a can of goop. This does it!

Plenty of Vegetables

As far as the vegetables, I went with peas, carrots, and celery cut into small dice. I hurried up the prep even more by using my handy vegetable chopper which chops them all the same size so they cook evenly. As someone with arthritic hands, I love that thing! (It’s my secret to speeding up Crockpot Bacon Cheeseburger Soup, too.)

Easy Creamy Chicken Noodles from the Crockpot? Yes!

To make Crockpot Creamy Chicken Noodles, all you do is chop your vegetables and scatter them on the bottom of the crockpot. Add the broth and seasonings then top it all with three boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

Cook it on LOW for 6 hours (or HIGH for 3) and gently shred the chicken with two forks. Stir in 4 oz. of cream cheese, and 2 cups of frozen egg noodles. Cook on LOW for 1 more hour and, boom, dinner’s served!

Crockpot Creamy Chicken Noodles keep well in the refrigerator for up to 5 days in an air-tight container.

      Hope you enjoyed it!

    Thank you for posting this recipe! I have been searching for recipes for the crock pot that didn’t involve canned soups because of the sodium content!

    This was really tasty – and it fed me (no kids!) for the entire work week… hooray! Mine definitely did not come out looking very pretty like your pictures did, but the deliciousness was there 🙂 I also added a lot more carrots and celery since I had them around. Definitely plan on making this again soon, thanks for sharing! I’ve found that I can cook chicken in the crock pot for 3 hours or less (under 8 servings) on LOW and it cooks all the way through without that crock pot dry chicken effect – otherwise I followed your instructions to the T!

      I”m glad you enjoyed it, Lincoln! I bet yours didn’t come out pretty because you didn’t stand there wiping the sauce off vegetables and arranging them one at a time to take an appealing photo. 😉

    Needs salt! Very bland without it.

    1. Katie Berry says:

      You’re welcome to add salt, of course. We find that the chicken broth usually adds enough salt for our tastes, but everyone likes different amounts.

    I haven’t ever noticed frozen noodles in my market. Are they precooked, or just fresh pasta (which I see refrigerated, not frozen)? If using regular dry noodles, at what point should I add them? Or cook separately and stir in at the end? Thanks!

    1. Katie Berry says:

      Frozen noodles are available in any major supermarket, including Walmart. Rheams is one brand. The recipe I wrote is based on using them, so I have no idea about using regular dry noodles. If you want to vary a recipe, half the fun is experimenting on your own.
