I couldn't find the frozen egg noodles
Though the frozen egg noodles are becoming more common, not every grocery store has them. You can use a bag of homestyle egg noodles instead. Keep an eye on the moisture level in the crock as it's possible they will need more broth.
Can I use frozen chicken breasts?
It has been deemed unsafe to use frozen meat or poultry in a slow cooker by the USDA. The reason is that the meat will stay at the unsafe temperature range that bacteria can grow at for too long.
I would recommend thawing your chicken in the fridge a day or two before you cook the recipe.
Is this a good recipe for kids?
Yes it is! Kids seem to really like this crock pot chicken and noodles recipe. I think it is because it is not a strong tasting meal. And kids love noodles!
You can leave out the garlic and poultry seasoning if you have especially sensitive (or picky) eaters.

- 4 Chicken Breasts (boneless/skinless)
- ¾ tsp Salt
- ½ tsp Pepper
- ½ tsp Poultry Seasoning
- 1 ½ tsp Garlic Powder
- 2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup
- ½ cup Unsalted Butter, cut in slices
- 2 tsp Better Than Bouillon® Chicken Flavor (reduced sodium)
- 4 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth
- 24 oz Reames® Homestyle Egg Noodles (frozen) or 8 oz Dry Wide Egg Noodles
- 2 cups Frozen Mixed Vegetables (optional)
Place the chicken breasts in the slow cooker. Sprinkle with the salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, and garlic powder.
Spread the soup over the top of the chicken.
Add the sliced butter on top of the soup layer.
Mix together the bouillon and chicken broth to dissolve it. Then pour over chicken/soup layers.
Place the lid on the crock and cook on Low for 5-6 hours, or until chicken is done and can be easily shredded.
Remove the chicken to a plate using tongs. Set aside.
Add the noodles to the soup mixture (and frozen veggies, if using). Stir well. Place the lid back on and cook on High for another 1-2 hours, stirring halfway through cook time.
If using dry Egg Noodles, add them about 12-15 minutes before serving. Stir them in and place the lid back on.
Meanwhile, use two forks to shred the chicken. Then cover so it doesn't dry out.
When the noodles are done, Add the shredded chicken to the crock and mix well. If the chicken and noodles is too thick for your liking, just add some water or broth.

I only have thin, sliced chicken breast. Should I cut my timing down?
Yes, maybe 2-3 hours on Low.
Not a fan of Cream of Chicken soup. Any other suggestions in it's place. Like the creamier style Chicken and Noodles.
Sour cream and some chicken bouillon makes a nice substitute.
I use cream of celery or cream of mushroom..
Wondering if I can cut this recipe in half. And if so is the cook time still the same?
Yes you can, and the cook time will be about the same. It depends on the thickness of the chicken breasts. The noodles should take about the same amount of time.

Hi! I’m having a hard time finding the low sodium chicken bouillon. Would you just cut the bouillon down to half of what it calls for in this case?
You can do that, taste it, and add more if you like.
I dont have an instapot and using a crockpot instead. Is it better to thaw chicken b4 putting in crockpot or do I want to to put them in crockpot frozen?
I would thaw at least halfway.
