Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup Ingredients

Chicken is the main source of protein in this recipe. I prefer to use organic free-range chicken breasts but you can also use chicken thighs.

Carrots add beta carotene and a nice pop of color in this soup.

Celery is rich in vitamins and minerals and adds a nice texture and green color.

Onion & Garlic add amazing flavor and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Dried herbs are added from the beginning to infuse flavor. An Italian blend and celery seed are recommended but you can use a blend of Italian herbs you have on hand.

Broth is an important component of this soup. Use a good quality broth but feel free to use bone broth, vegetable broth or chicken broth.

Pasta is added during the last ten minutes of cooking and you can use egg noodles or whatever pasta shape you have on hand!

Lemon Juice is added at the end of cooking and adds a little vitamin C, fresh flavor, and acidity.

Fresh Herbs In the last step add fresh herbs like chives, green onions or parsley. Feel free to get creative you could also use thyme, tarragon, sage or oregano.
