Mom’s Chicken and Noodles are so easy to prepare in the slow cooker and taste delicious!

Mom’s Chicken and Noodles is one of our favorite recipes to make in the crockpot. Everyone loves this recipe at my house! It is perfect in the winter or after the holidays when you have extra turkey to use too!  You will NOT believe how easy this is!  It is my go-to recipe on my menu plan every month.  Mom’s Chicken and Noodles are so easy to prepare in the slow cooker and taste delicious!

I like to serve Mom’s Chicken and Noodles with Sour Cream Rolls and a salad.  I also love to use this method to make chicken for pulled BBQ chicken too! It is a great way to use split chicken breasts.   I love cooking with Split Chicken Breasts because it is so easy and fast plus you can often pick them up on sale and manager’s special.  My Mom actually passed this recipe to me and it is one of my favorites to make when I need comfort food.

  1. These days I make less meals that reply on canned soup, etc. But this dish looks so quick and delicious it might just be worth keeping the ingredients on hand for those days when I jsut cant cook.

  2. Do you keep the 2.5 cups of water the chicken was cooked in overnight, or you discarding it?

  3. Can I just put raw chicken in crockpot with everything else and not do the overnight slow cooking? Then add noodles like 30 minutes or more before serving time? Please help. I’m fairly new to cooking this way.

  4. Love to make soup, but being a vegetarian I would leave out the chicken. This a great idea to save time and when ur sick.

  5. Hi! This looks lovely. Can it be made without the gravy ? And would it be ok to add a few more split vreasts ? I want to make enough for lunch leftovers.
    Thanks ahead of time !
    (I’m the first reply of 2017 I guess ! lol)

    1. You could make without the gravy and yes you can add more split breasts. Just be sure your slow cooker is large enough. You may need some chicken broth in lieu of the gravy.

    Why discard the water the chicken cooked in? Can’t it be used in the recipe for the water? It’s chicken broth isn’t it?

  7. I am 69 years old. My Grandmother, Mother and I NEVER made Chicken and Noodles like this. Mon and Grandma used stewing hens. They were cheat and needed a lot of boiling to soften up the meat. Since we can’t get them any more, I save chicken carcasses and freeze them along with some cooked meat. When I want to make noodles, I take 3 or 4 carcasses and some cooked chicken out of the freezer. I put the carcasses in a large pot, cover with water and cook for at least 24 hours. Take everything out and remove meat from bone. (Yes this is a little work.) For the noodles, for every egg, add 2 Tbsp milk and 1 tsp salt and mix thoroughly. Mix in 1 cup flour. Knead on lightly floured board until smooth (about 10 times.) Let the dough rest for 10 minutes, then roll out as thin as possible. You can add the noodles directly to the pot or let then sit on the board for a while before adding. This sounds like more work than it is. The noodles take only 15 min, to make. Cook on medium to low 30 to 60 min. If you are on a budget, this WILL NOT break the bank. Basically one egg and a cup of flour. How much cheaper can you get?

  8. This sounds good. i’ve made something similar, but may try with the gravy.
    **If you let the chicken sit in the juice while it cools, it stays super moist.

    I just tried this recipe and it is delish. I only did a few things different, such as I used the water I cooked the chicken in and after adding the soups, I also added a half of tsp of basil and black pepper to taste with the noodles Once the noodles were done I then added the cooked chicken with a cup and a half of frozen peas and cooked that all together for a half hour and then served…it was amazing flavor. Great comfort food also.

  10. I’ve been making this for 25 years or so, and it is great! I, however, went one step further and added 8 oz sour cream at the end, kids love this stuff! Yum.
