Last year, I asked for crockpot recipe suggestions, and my friend Sarah from The Sadder But Wiser Girl recommended this Crock Pot Chicken and Noodle recipe. I pinned it, with the plan of making it in the near future, and now, nearly a full year later, I’m finally doing it. I don’t know why I waited so long; Sarah also recommended this Slow Cooked Whole Chicken, which is one of my very favorite Crock Pot recipes, so obviously she has good taste.
Maybe I’ll ask Sarah to manage my meal planning full-time. I’ll ask her nicely so she’ll surely say yes.
This Crock Pot Chicken and Noodles recipe is incredibly easy, and fits solidly in the comfort food category. I can’t decide if it tastes like a creamy chicken noodle soup, or more like chicken and dumplings, but with noodles instead of dumplings. You know what? Just make it, and decide for yourself. Please note: It calls for egg noodles, and I used rotini, because it’s what I had on hand.
The kids love it, and it freezes beautifully.
Thanks for another winner, Sarah!
I used my 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker to make this Crock Pot Chicken and Noodles recipe.

Yummy, easy, and good for the whole family sums up this recipe. I pretty much followed the recipe. I used regular egg noodles and added these the last 20 minutes of cooking. I love this option as it makes an easy dinner. I also used frozen chicken breasts and cooked on low for 7.5 hours, and added a sprinkle of pepper. I served asparagus as a side dish but ended up cutting mine up and adding it to my bowl. Next time I would add a few veggies to the crock.
This was soooo good, and so easy! It reminded me of the noodles my grandma used to make–yummy and comforting. I also used frozen chicken breasts, cooked for 8 hours on low, then added the egg noodles right out of the bag. The sauce in the Crock Pot was thin enough to cook those noodles right up in about 25 minutes. I also added mixed vegetables to mine in the end with some pepper. Everyone loved this, and the leftovers are just as good.
I overcooked my noodles a bit, so watch them that last 30 minutes or so. They’ll cook up faster than you think. I love the idea of adding veggies to the mix. It would give it a pot pie vibe, which I totally dig.

Well hellooooo, tomorrow night’s dinner!
And you probably don’t even need to run to the store, huh?
I do agree about the tendency for the noodles to get overcooked. The second time we made this they got a little overdone, but still very good. This recipe is so awesome-I’m so glad you tried it out. Thanks for the shout out-now if I can only get out of my little hole and start blogging again…
My overcooked noodles almost gave the dish a chicken and dumplings consistency, which was yum! Thanks, again, for sharing!
Sarah sent me over—this looks crazy easy and delicious! I am a crock pot fanatic, and after reading this—and realizing I have ALL the ingredients in my house, I’ve decided this will be one of our dinners this weekend—served with biscuits and jam! Yum! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Sarah never steers me wrong on recipes! Thanks for stopping by, Marcia!
I made it Saturday night with added veggies and it was DIVINE!!!!
Made this for dinner with 1tbsp of Italian seasoning and a a bag of baby carrots thrown in, and it was delicious! Very very rich though – I will probably just do 1-2 tbsp of butter instead of a whole stick next time. I’m not used to so much butter! 🙂
I would love it with some veggies, and I like the idea of cutting the butter back. Thanks for the feedback, Janet!
Is this cork screw noodles or egg noodles? The recipe says egg noodles but the picture looks like cork screw noodles. Thank you.
Hi Janet! I’ve made this with both egg noodles and (as pictured) rotini. I know others have substituted whatever pasta they had on hand with great results. Feel free to modify it to your tastes and pantry contents. Thanks for stopping by!
Do you have to turn it up to high to cook the egg noodles.
I forgot to even put the butter in the recipe and do not think it was missed. Everyone loved it. I served with colorful pasta (made with veggies) and green beans. The green beans mixed into it well.
Can you use frozen egg noodles?
