I make this in the crockpot. As a working girl, the crockpot comes in handy.
I like flavorful things, and use multiple layers to make this even better. Don't worry cause it's all easy stuff. This working girl is tired after working all day, so I try to have shortcuts and bump up the flavor to get the best of both worlds easy style.
To make it quick and the dish less greasy, I either use boneless skinless chicken tenderloins or breasts, and have also used boneless skinless chicken thighs and all work equally good.
** NOTE ...I use lots of seasonings, poultry seasoning, parsley flakes, garlic & onion powder, seasoned salt & pepper, celery seed or flakes, and at the end a couple tablespoonful's of chicken base/bouillon, or sometimes I even used the packet of chicken gravy mix ( I use just a tablespoonful and save the rest of the package in a Ziploc baggie (that is a good trick to bump the flavor of things, beef, turkey or chicken gravy mix). It is good in stews, soups anything..
However you make this, make it soon and enjoy....
Easy chicken and noodles
1 lb of boneless & skinless chicken (tenderloins, breasts, or thighs)
1/2 onion chopped
1 1/2 boxes of chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1/2 package of frozen mixed vegetables
1 package of frozen Reams noodles
1-2 Tablespoonful's of chicken base/bouillon/gravy mix **see note above
seasonings of your choice ( I use poultry seasoning, parsley flakes, garlic & onion powder, seasoned salt & pepper, celery seed or celery flakes)
In crockpot add stock and whisk in the chicken broth, cream of chicken and celery soup, and mixed vegetables. Add seasonings (**except chicken base/bouillon/gravy mix), mixing well, add chicken and stir coating chicken. Cook on low 4-5 hours or high about 3 hours until chicken is cooked thru and tender. Shred chicken into soup mixture when done. Add frozen noodles stirring well. Cook on low for around 20-30 minutes stirring often. Add chicken base/bouillon/gravy in the last 5-10 minutes of cooking stirring well to dissolve. Check for doneness and stir gently. If you like this mixture thick you can leave as is, sometimes I add a little more chicken stock to thin it out. Serve and enjoy. This keeps well in the fridge for a couple days, and heats up well.
