Clean Eating Crock Pot Chicken Noodle

It isn't very often B asks for a specific dinner, unless he wants me to create mac n cheese that tastes like Kraft, or ice cream. Both realistic of course. But, since it's been so cold here in AZ (Yes, COLD! You can't tell me 28 degrees is not cold!) he's been on a soup thing. He bought canned soup over the weekend (yuck) and asked me on Monday if I had a chicken noodle recipe. I didn't, but I couldn't bare to see him eat more junk soup so I came up with this! It really hit the spot-- especially after I added hot sauce to mine! 


Ingredients
 Boneless chicken breasts
3 cups low sodium, organic chicken broth
1 package brown rice noodles
1/2 a low sodium bullion cube 
3 cups water
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 bag baby carrots, chopped in half
1 small onion, chopped
1T garlic powder
1T onion powder
1 T dill
1T rosemary

These are the noodles I bought...



Any brand is fine, just make sure these are the only ingredients! 

Directions
1. Place all ingredients except noodles in crock pot. Chicken breasts should be whole. 
2. Cook on high for 7 hours. 
3. About 20 minutes before serving, boil water for the noodles. 
4. Take chicken breasts out of crock pot and cut-- it's a little hard because it tends to shred, but just try ;)
5. When noodles are soft, add to crock pot along with chopped chicken. Mix well and serve!

  5. You can throw the noodles directly into the crock pot for the last 8 minutes of so of cooking and save yourself having to clean another pot. ;)

    I JUST purchased the exact same noodle brand, except mine are elbow macaroni I blogged about my grocery haul. Check it out. LOL.

  6. I recently bought Brown Rice Noodles to try and before I cooked them I looked up their stats online and it was saying that Brown Rice Noodles are really high on the GI scale so I haven't used them yet because of that- what about you heard about them?

  7. I made it... Came home after 7 hours and all the liquid was gone. Added more water and broth and saved the soup. Any suggestions?

    1. Hmm, the only reason I can think of that this may have happened is if you used more chicken than I did? I would just increase the liquid next time!

  8. Do you remember how many chicken breasts you put in and how big the crock pot was? Thanks!
