Recipe Tips

  • Typically for this soup, I will use boneless chicken as it is much easier to shred. However, for a bit more flavor, I highly recommend using chicken drumsticks or something similar. Make sure you remove the bones at step four.
  • The cooking time will heavily depend on the noodle or pasta you use. If you want to reduce the chances of some undercooked noodles, simply parboil before adding it to the slow cooker.
  • To make this soup gluten-free, simply replace the egg noodles with some gluten-free linguine pasta.
