MOM’S HOMEMADE CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP
When I was young, my mother would make a homemade chicken noodle soup that not only warmed my body, but warmed my soul. I think the book title “Chicken Noodle Soup for the Soul” was inspired by my mom. She would add the whole chicken to the soup and allow it to shred and steep into the flavored chicken stock. She would also add cream of mushroom soup for a wonderful creamy consistency.
MY SLOW COOKER CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP RECIPE
I adore my mother’s soup so much; however as I got older, I cut down on my dairy intake so I started working on a stock based version that was just as satisfying as my mother’s recipe. I also wanted to cut down on my preparation time so the use of a slow cooker seemed like a perfect fit.
This slow cooker chicken noodle soup has all of the elements that make a chicken noodle soup soul warming. I even added some tumeric for health reasons, and it kicks up the flavor (and color) as well. So this fall when you feel sickness coming on (or even if you don’t) make sure you make a pot of this slow cooker chicken noodle soup — one the best slow cooker chicken recipes out there!
