Our chicken noodle soup recipe puts a healthy spin on an American classic. This soup is great for when you are feeling under the weather or when you just have a craving for warm comfort food. Best of all, since it is a slow cooker recipe, it is easy to make and does not take a lot of time in the kitchen. You can even prep it early in the day and have a warm bowl of soup waiting for lunch or dinner.
Our slow cooker chicken noodle soup is packed with healthy ingredients. We include veggies and white meat chicken, so you get plenty of vitamins and minerals, as well as your daily dose of protein. The savory broth warms your belly and there are just enough noodles to satisfy your carb cravings. It is also much lower in sodium than many canned varieties, so there is no need to worry about your blood pressure when sipping this soup.
Soup is great served alone or with sides, like chewy whole grain bread or a leafy green salad. You can even bake up some kale or veggie chips if you like your soup accompanied by a crunch. If you love soup, our skinny slow cooker version of chicken noodle soup is a great option.
