Ingredients
  • For the chicken:
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • For the soup:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 cups cooking broth from chicken (use all of the strained cooking broth)
  • 6-8 cups water
  • 2 cups cooked chicken (approximately ½ of the chicken you cook)
  • 1 (12 oz) package fine egg noodles (I used Manischewitz)
Instructions
  1. Place the onions, celery, garlic, and chicken in the slow cooker. Add the spices and chicken broth. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
  2. When chicken is cooked, remove from slow cooker. Strain the cooking liquid and reserve for soup. Discard cooked vegetables.
  3. In a large pot, saute onions, celery and carrots in olive oil until the vegetables are soft. Add the spices.
  4. Add the strained chicken broth and 6-8 cups of water to the vegetables. Simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  5. Cut or shred ½ of the cooked chicken. Reserve the other half for another use. Add the chicken and noodles to the pot. Continue to simmer until the noodles are soft, about 4-6 minutes. You may need to add more water depending on how much liquid the noodles absorb.
