If you would like to make this recipe in the Instant Pot®, here is that recipe: Instant Pot Chicken and 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. 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.
1 pkg frozen egg noodles, 24 ounce
2 can(s)cream of chicken soup, 14.7 oz each; sometimes I use 1 can chicken and 1 can cream of celery
1 stick(1/2) cup butter – cut into pieces
1 can(s)chicken broth, 32 oz; may want extra to thin out if too thick. The frozen noodles thicken the broth.
mixed vegetables, optional; I didn’t use this time
1 tsp butter Than Bullion, optional; I add for a richer chicken flavor
6 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 4 large
·salt & pepper, to taste; can add some parsley too if desired
Chicken breasts salt and pepper.
Place at bottom of the slow cooker.
Spoon soup over chicken.
Cut the butter into several pieces and spread them evenly over the soup.
Whisk the broth with the stock.
Pour over the soup.
Place the lid on the slow cooker and put on low heat. Cook for 6 hours.
Remove the chicken and tear it into pieces.
Return to the crock.
Now add the noodles; if you add vegetables, add them now. Cook for another 2 hours or until noodles is tender. Stir several times during the last 2 hours. (You may want to add some broth to thin out at the end of cooking, as homemade noodles thicken the broth, which we like. )
Sprinkle with parsley and mix if you use it at the end of cooking.
Season with salt and pepper, if necessary, and serve. Yummy!
