Cooking Thursday

One thing I like about the weather changing and the cooler weather is the change in the foods I cook. Our family loves soup, especially on a cold night. The recipe I'm sharing has a little twist from the normal chicken noodle soup. An added benefit is that it's made in the crock pot and it makes a big pot full.  For more recipes, visit Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.

Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

1 Rotisserie chicken
4 stalks celery, chopped
4 large carrots, chopped
1 1/2 cups water
32 ounce carton chicken stock
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
1 bag egg noodles

Place whole cooked chicken and any broth that's in the container with it.  Add the celery, carrots and water.  Cook on low for about 4 hours or until chicken is falling off the bone.  Remove chicken from crock pot and allow to cool.
Add chicken stock, cream of chicken soup, milk, onion, basil. thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper to ingredients in crockpot.
When chicken is cool, remove meat from the bone and shred it.  Stir in into the other ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low for another 4-5 hours.
About 45 minutes before serving, boil noodles as directed on package.  Drain and stir into soup.  Enjoy!

This sounds delicious. I have a similar recipe which uses a can of the same soup with a package of wild rice mix and the seasoning pack from it too. It's really chickeny! :)
