Easy family dinner ideas like simple crock pot Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup quickly becomes a dinner time favorite. Just toss it all in the slow cooker & dinner is done with little effort. But oh man is it delicious! Absolutely the perfect easy chicken recipe! Don’t miss my tips for speeding up the prep process too!
Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup
I love effortless dinner recipes. If I can toss everything into a crock pot, set it & let it go until I’m ready for it- then it quickly becomes my favorite dish.
You see, there are a lot of crockpot dinner recipes out there. Some actually get quite complicated. To me, the slow cooker is meant to simplify the dinner process.
If I spend just as much time preparing a crock pot recipe as I would a stove top recipe- then I really don’t see the point.
So when I work at new recipes it’s all about how I can simplify the process to make it easy.
Take this creamy chicken noodle soup for example. No processed ingredients, but yet it’s a toss & go recipe none the less. Not to mention easy clean up too. I love it & so does the family!
Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
Juicy, tender chunks of chicken, egg noodles & loads of flavor. So there are a couple things I like to do to speed up the process even more.
This is already a toss & go recipe, but to make it even easier I typically use what I call “bag chicken”. These are the frozen chicken breasts that come in the large bag.
It’s not the best quality chicken- but when I’m mixing it in to something like a sauce or soup I think it works just fine. I tend to reserve the fresh, high quality chicken breasts for when I’m grilling & enjoying the piece on it’s own.
When I’m really going to taste the quality difference. The other thing I like to do is toss all this in the crock pot the night before.
Then I just cover & refrigerate until morning. When I come down to the kitchen to get my coffee in the morning I just transfer from the fridge to the cooker part of the crock pot & get it started. That way I’m not trying to get prep done during the busy mornings.

Mm! I wonder if canned coconut milk would act as half and half to make this a kosher option – bc it sounds amazing!

Oh that might be great Tamar!!!! Plus it’s thicker so it would have the right consistency. Let me know if you try it- I may do that too.
