Crockpot Chicken & Noodles

My aunt and I went to an antique store recently for their holiday open house. When we were checking out I noticed a holiday cookbook sitting at the register. It was a supplement to a local newspaper so I grabbed one before we left the store. There were tons of recipe in the booklet from local people. I spotted this one, and decided to give it a try. My grandmother used to make the best chicken and noodles, homemade of course. I thought I would try this cheater version, especially since it is prepared in the crockpot. I’m always on the lookout for good crockpot recipes. Working long hours as a nurse, it’s always nice to come home and have dinner prepared for you. This turned out really good, I will make it again.

Crockpot Chicken and Noodles

Source: Recipe states Kathleen Feather as the author


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used frozen)

2 cans cream of chicken soup

1 stick of butter (eeek! I used 1/2 a stick)

chicken broth (recipe didn’t state how many so I used 2 15 oz cans)

24 oz. frozen egg noodles (I used Reames)

Cook chicken, soup, butter, and broth in crockpot on low for 8 hours (I cooked it on low for 6 1/2 hours). Take chicken out and shred. Put chicken back in; add noodles and cook on low for 2 hours. Stir a few times while cooking. I served this over mashed potatoes, with a side of green beans.

  1. This looks so good! And easy too! I love homemade chicken noodle soup but my husband isn’t big on the whole boiled chicken thing. So I’m going to try it this way and add celery and carrots.

  2. Thank you for posting this recipe. I made it for my bunco group a couple of weeks ago and it was a big hit. Such a hit, that I am making it for my family for dinner tonight. Great post!

  3. This was great – chicken and dumplings without all the work! I used dry noodles – the thick Amish ones. They worked like a charm. We love dumplings but I never get them as good as my mom’s so don’t make them.

    • I don’t know where you live but in AZ, I found them at Basha’s, Walmart and Fry’s all by frozen garlic bread…small bags and hard to find since they don’t have a ton stocked like other things. The bag is a yellowish color with blue on the sides of it. Good luck!

  4. Hi, just wondering if the chicken breasts were frozen when put in crock pot or if you thawed them first & did you leave the noodles frozen? Thanks,Sue

  5. This recipe is yummy! My husband and I had a few friends over for lunch and had it with mashed potatoes, corn and homemade angel biscuits. Everyone really liked it! I modified the recipe a little by using a rotisserie chicken. I deboned the chicken and placed the chicken pieces, soup, 1/2 stick butter, and broth in crock pot on high for approx. 45mins. Then added the frozen noodles. Cooked in low for 3-3.5 hours. They were deeelicious! :)

  6. Looking at a pin on Pinterest, IT DOES say Amish and brings you directly to this site. You owe Christine an apology and saying someone is on crack because You don’t know what they are talking about is unacceptable.

    • Ok, you apparently are unfamiliar with Pinterest. When you make a pin, you name that pin whatever you want. I could name it dog poo stew and that would have absolutely nothing to do with either the owner of this blog, the recipe (which is very good, by the way) or really anything else at all. If you want to be bossy and rude to someone then track down the person who pinned this under the name Amish whatever. Seriously people.

      • I use Pinterest all the time actually. I get really tired of answering stupid comments. Obviously when you click on the link that takes you to this recipe you can see that it says nothing about Amish….

    • When you pin a recipe you can write anything you want on the pin. The creator of this blog can not possibly control or know whats written.., unwad your panties.

  7. Since chicken breasts vary in size what was the total weight of the chicken before cooking? I weighed the four frozen chicken breasts I have and they have a combined weight of 2 pounds. I hope that isn’t too much. Guess I’ll find out they’re cooking in my crock pot right now!

  8. Currently cooking this in the crockpot, looking very forward to it. Thanks for the recipe and additional directions in the comments!

  9. I want to try this recipe, but the Reames frozen noodles I found (Kroger) came in both pre-cooked and uncooked varieties. I bought them both because I wasn’t sure which one to use. Any thoughts?

    • Honestly not sure……I get mine at Walmart and there is only one package. I can’t remember if it said they were cooked or not. You could probably use either. You might have to leave the uncooked ones in the crockpot longer. Let me know how it turns out.

      • Use the Amish noodles!! hahahhahhha, so kiiidddiiinngg…I found this recipe TASTY as well as entertaining! Thanks, AmishNurse! ;)

  10. This looks like a great/easy recipe. One question for you…do I change the cooking time if I don’t use frozen chicken? But, I will be using the frozen noodles. New to the world of crockpot cooking. Thanks for the recipe and advice :)

    • I have never tried that. I think I would cook the whole chicken first and shred. Then, you could use in recipe. I just wouldn’t cook as long because the chicken would already be cooked. I think if you subbed in a whole chicken in the original recipe it would be difficult to get all the bones/fat etc. out after cooking.

  11. The Amish reference is understandable …..pinterest or no pinterest…but ssaying someone is smoking crack is downright rude. Sure hope you’re never my nurse ! You owe her an apology..

    • McKensie, go play hall monitor somewhere else…oh like..on your own blog. This is a place to share recipes, (damn good ones) not ask stupid questions like..”Like how can it be Amish if like…the Amish, like don’t have electricity?”
      Uh..if you think its Amish & therefore (according to you) needs to be made on a wood stove…WHY are you clicking on it??

      As for you…butt the hell out.

  12. I love this recipe, this will be the third time I’ve used it! Don’t need to change a thing! This is thecookingnurse’s blog I don’t think she needs to apologize to anyone! I doubt she meant as literal as you all were taking it either. Clearly the bottom line is..these noodles are delish!

  13. Cold and very snowy day in Ohio. This nurse has your recipe in the crockpot now! Waited too long to start so I am going to cook for a little on high or else we won’t be eating until tonight. Thanks for the easy recipe!

  14. Cheryl how’d it turn out? I am also suffering cold Ohio nights (as you just posted yesterday). This is on my menu for tomorrow

  15. i am also a nurse..i am going to try this, looks great. as far as the smoking crack comment i laughed so hard!!! we where on the site because of the recipe not whether the Amish use electricity or not..some ppl just have to be smart asses..As a nurse i found your come back so darn funny had to read it to my husband
