Simple Chicken Noodle Soup

This easy chicken noodle soup can be prepared on the stove or in a slow cooker. I’ve made it both ways. The slow cooker takes less supervision so it’s my favorite way.

The steps are the same in both methods just the cooking time is different. The recipe below gives instructions for each method.

Step 1:

Place your chicken in the pot, add the broth, then add enough water to cover the chicken. Add the spices and cook until it easily shreds.

You can remove the chicken to shred it, just be sure to keep all the wonderful broth.
