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.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles are pure comfort food! These comforting chicken and noodles are an easy, classic meal that will feed a hungry bunch!
- 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.

Best chicken and noodles I ever had! Added the frozen vegetables and served with mashed potatoes.
Absolutely 100% delicious!! Husband is super happy and thank you!
Okay, quick question. Is there a big difference between chicken stock and chicken bone broth? I’m wondering if I just ruined my chicken and noodles. 🤣
It will be delicious either way. To me the biggest thing that can ruin a recipe is too much salt!
Hi there! I plan to make this today and wanted to know what you would do differently if you were making homemade/from scratch noodles?
My mother in law makes something very similar to this and will not share the recipe (mean, right?!), so I'm going to attempt it and hopefully make it even better! 🙂
I would add the noodles in las, about 10 minutes before serving. Then check them to make sure they are done to your liking.
Hello! Making this recipe today and was wondering if you can do the first part on high as well so it doesn't take as long? I would think it's alright just so the chicken gets cooked and need to just watch it doesn't get over cooked. I wanted your opinion on this.
Very excited to try this. I’m just confused a bit when to add noodles. If I’m using Reames frozen egg noodle, do I add them and cook for another 1-2 hours, or just cook them on high for 15 min like it says in one of the last steps? Thanks
HI, after removing the chicken, add the noodles and cook until they are done and softened, about 1-2 hours. The chicken will keep, just cover it. You then add the shredded chicken back into the crock when the noodles are done. The 15 minute time is for typical egg noodles, not the Reames frozen as those are thicker and need a longer cook time.
I am wondering the same! Very confusing as to when to add the noodles!
Not sure what is so confusing. Add the frozen noodles after chicken is cooked, and cook for 1-2 hours. If using dry egg noodles, the cook time is about 10-15 minutes. Add chicken back in after noodles are done. That is so the chicken doesn't overcook.
Could I buy shredded chicken from the deli to cut time in half?
Yes, just pick up the recipe from the point where you add the shredded chicken back in. You may need to cook it a little longer from that point, but check it to be sure.
Holy crap this was so good! We had a Christmas crockpot party and everyone loved it. I was told to make it next time.
