We have been having such a cold winter here in Ontario, some days feeling like -30C, all I want to do is curl up and eat and drink warm things!! I definitely want to add more soups to my recipe list, I think soup is a great comfort food and can either be a meal in itself or a side dish. Chicken noodle soup is such a classic and although there are millions of recipes out there I thought why not create my own.. I loved it and it was so easy to make in the slow cooker, you can leave it all day and then add the noodles just before your ready to eat it. Makes 14- 1 cup servings at just 2 freestyle smart points.

        Hi, where do you purchase noodles, would like to make this soup…sounds yumme👏😊

        • Drizzle Reply

          The brand I have is a Canadian brand but any should be fine

  1. this is delicious!!! mine was alot thicker ? But used the same amount of everything ?any ideas

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Tracy, glad you enjoyed it, was it thicker right away or after it set for a bit? Mine thickened up after it had been sitting for a while

      • it was a little when we first had it. then when It set it had gotten alot thicker. still delicious just wondered about the point change maybe ?

        • Drizzle Reply

          Hi, yeah as mentioned mine thicken, you can just add some water to is as it would now be more like a condensed soup

          Your noodles likely absorbed the broth. When I use noodles in a soup I put the pot in my sink filled with cold water-prevents the noodles from over cooking and soaking up broth.

    Made your soup today for my sick husband. It was delicious. Enjoy your recipes. Keep up the good work

      Thanks Sandi, glad you enjoyed it and sending get well wishes to your hubby

  3. I love your recipes. Do you have one for Irish Soda bread? thanks

      Hi Louise, no I don’t sorry, did you try Pinterest?

  4. I have input all of the data from the nutrition facts chart and I get the smart point value as 8 for the freestyle. Am I doing something wrong?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Glenn, yes.. because as mentioned in the post the nutritional values incl zero point foods, so chicken and veggies, I build my recipes on the WW app to determine the freestyle points but I have to provide the nutritional info for the recipe incl all ingredients for those counting calories

    Hi, just found your site and it’s great! The chicken soup looks delicious; I am definitely going to try it. What kind of chicken broth do you use? If I used low sodium, would it change the points?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Eileen, so glad you found me too 🙂 I usually use a low sodium one as well, and most chicken broths do not have points in them

  6. Anthony Morra Reply

    But after making it a recipe in my recipe builder in the WW app, I get 1 SP on the freestyle program? I see that you got 2sp. Just wondering what I did wrong?

    • Drizzle Reply

      It is hard to say, maybe a different product brand?? Go based on what your App says using your ingredients 🙂

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Vanessa, yes that should work fine, I hope you enjoy it 🙂

  7. I made this loaf but it didn’t bake. I tried again and left it in the oven for double the time but it still didn’t bake through. It’s a new oven and I have made other things that turned out fine. Not sure why. Any suggestions.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Lori, sorry not sure which loaf as this is posted on my soup recipe?

  8. Do you know if another type of pasta would hold up as well, my husband is gf and wondering if i should leave adding pasta till later?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi, I’m not too familiar with GF pasta, might be a good idea to add it in later on
