I have a super easy Slow Cooker Asian Chicken Noodle soup for you today. Even though it is suppose to be another really warm day for this time of year I am posting soup. Somewhere it has to be soup weather today, right???
My kiddos really liked this twist on the classic chicken noodle and that’s their favorite soup!! I like it too because I can just throw everything into the crockpot and forget about it. And this recipe uses store bought noodles to help make things easier as well. I like that!! If chicken noodle soup is not your thing you really need to give this version a try but if you are looking for something different try out my Easy Taco Soup, Slow Cooker Spaghetti and Meatball Soup or this Creamy Cajun Potato Soup <-(my hubby’s favorite and he doesn’t care for soup!)
I changed up the broth by adding in your typical Asian ingredients like garlic, ginger, soy sauce and rice vinegar. It makes for an amazing broth that is full of flavor!! I also used chicken thighs which adds in more flavor than using just white meat but if you prefer to use chicken breasts go ahead it will still turn out great! 🙂
I really should be making another batch of this amazing soup today because my kiddos are sick. We have been pretty lucky this year and haven’t battled too much sickness so I guess it’s our turn. At least we have nice weather so they can sit outside and get a little fresh air in their lungs. Plus, I get to open up the house which is one of my favorite parts of spring.
Wait did I just say spring???? It’s the middle of February!!!
Oh my, I better make a batch of this quick so I quit thinking about spring time and remember it is still winter! Plus, I can’t stand being sick while I’m pregnant so I need all things good right now!
So whether you are having spring like weather or not you still need to make this wonderfully delicious slow cooker asian chicken noodle soup!!
