Crock-pot Chicken Noodle Soup

Oh the weather outside is frightful….
Yes winter’s in South Carolina can be called many things, but harsh is never one of them.  That said, it DOES get cold round these parts in contrast to the summer months.  Many of you are used to sub-zero temperatures in the winter, but how many of you are used to 98% humidity on a day that exceeds the 95 degree mark?  So.. it is a blustery 30 degrees with slight freezing rain today.  Great day to make a pot of homemade Chicken Noodle Soup for dinner in the crock-pot!

1 whole chicken, boiled, deboned and shredded

8 cups of chicken broth from boiled chicken
1 lb. bag of baby carrots, cut into thirds

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 large sweet onion, chopped
5 stalks of celery, chopped

2 bay leaves
1 tsp dried basil

Salt and pepper to taste
1 bag of whole wheat egg noodles

What to do-
Boil your chicken, debone and shred.

Sauté onions, and celery in olive oil.
Meanwhile, spray your crock pot with cooking spray or inset liner

Add chicken to the bottom, followed by baby carrots and chicken broth.
Add sautéed vegetables, bay leaf, salt, pepper, and basil.

Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours.
Cook noodles in a separate pot using the directions on the bag/box.

When finished boiling, drain and add to the crock pot stirring in completely.

Allow to sit for a few minutes, then serve with a crusty roll or french bread.
