Crockpot Chicken and Noodles

Here’s an easy- but maybe not the most healthy- meal for a busy day!

Crockpot Chicken and Noodles

2 frozen skinless chicken breasts

1 can cream of mushroom (or cream of chicken) soup

1/2 cup sour cream

pepper to taste

egg noodles (I try for about 2-3 cups cooked)

Spray crockpot with a non stick cooking spray.  Cook chicken mixture on low in the crockpot all day.  When it’s done, it should shred easily with a fork.  About an hour before serving, cook egg noodles of your choice in boiling water on the stove.  When they are done, drain and add to crockpot.

That’s it!  I don’t recommend letting the noodles stay in the crockpot more than a few hours of they loose texture.  We also like the Amish noodles as pictured, but eggs noodles work great too.

I’ll be serving this this evening with mashed potatoes (the potatoes are cooking in a second slow cooker) and will make peas when I get home.

For me, this is a great meal on busy days that I almost always have the items needed to make it.  It can also easily be doubled to feed a larger family.  My recipe feeds the three of us with leftovers.

Do you have an easy slow cooker meal idea?
