Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup - Grandma Will Never Know!

I made this for my boyfriend once when he had a bad cold (we're now married) . Up until now he thought I had slaved over a pot all day making this for him. Sorry honey!

1 Rotisserie Chicken from local grocery store
1 Bag Egg Noodles (see below)
1/2 Bag Frozen Carrots, Onions, Celery
32oz Chicken Stock/Broth
3 Teaspoons Prepared Chopped Garlic (or 3 fresh cloves)
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
  1. Remove skin from Chicken breast, shred breast meat and add to slow cooker. You can add some bones into the pot as well -- but be sure to remove them at the end.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients (Except Noodles) to the slow cooker. Allow to cook on low all day (5-10 hours) -- while you're at work or out shopping!
  3. Add noodles. Add about 1/2 to 3/4 of the bag of noodles about 30 minutes before serving. When they are done the way you like you're ready to serve.
Note: Add more stock or water if needed to get the amount of liquid you desire.

Rotisserie chicken from the supermarket is such a convenience. Of course, it's not as cheap as cooking your own, but who wants to go to so much trouble for something you can buy "ready to use" for just a couple extra bucks?

We use it for making delicious "home made" chicken salad and anything from wraps to quesadillas.
