Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

Are there support groups that exist for individuals with apple addictions? I acquired two more huge bags of apples (this time not from the secret orchard) and I have been salivating over the possibilities. So far today I have made three apple recipes. One of them I had never made before and I'm super excited about sharing it! I have grand plans to attempt three more new recipes tomorrow. We'll see how that pans out.

Have you pulled out your crockpot for fall cooking yet? If not, do it! Go! I'll wait! Wipe out the dust and start slicing up some carrots.

Here's what you'll need. Chicken (don't worry about thawing first), celery, carrots, an onion, garlic, chicken broth, thyme, parsley and bit of salt and pepper.

Cook, stirring occasionally, on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours. Ten to fifteen minutes before the time is up, remove the chicken breasts and shred the meat on a cutting board. Put the shredded chicken back into the crockpot, along with egg noodles. Stir them in and make sure they are immersed in the liquid. Cook until the timer goes off, or until the noodles are cooked through.

Are you slicing yet?

Have a great weekend! Don't forget to turn your clocks back tonight. YES! An extra hour to create appley recipes! (See? Serious help needed.)
