Slow cooker chicken noodle soup

January 10, 2018

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 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

    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?

      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?

      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

    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?

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

    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.

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