Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

 Today is the day to stuff our faces with avocado egg rolls, bacon wrapped tater tots, and all the chili cheese dogs you can possibly eat.

But I’ll be here.

With a blanket. The heater. And this soup.

This creamy chicken noodle soup / chicken pot pie hybrid.

It’s the best of both worlds, really.

That comforting soup-y goodness with all the consistent creamy notes of a classic chicken pot pie.

Just serve with crusty bread for dipping purposes.

With a side of those bacon wrapped tots of course.

  1. this looks delish but for the dropping the noodles into a crock pot or any pot….I have found that you should NEVER cover a pot you are cooking pasta in or it will turn mushy, slimy or what ever but not be or look good. leave the lid off while it cooks. Once it is finished you can again cover or put a wedge under lid to let steam out. It sounds strange to cover once cooked and it doesn’t get mushy but that’s my experience.

  2. Curious if I could use rotisserie chicken instead and how that will affect the cook time and process?

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    Great Recipe. Thank you! I added a box of frozen spinach when I added the noodles and it turned out great!

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    A go to favorite in our house! 

  5. Hi I’m making this right now my issue is I only have Milk can I use that with either flour or corn starcpattih?

  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    Making this for the second time today. I do recommend less cooking time with the noodles in as they were a bit mushy for me when I made it the first time. Otherwise, this was delicious! My brother in law has been begging me to make it again so I’m going to give it another go today. 

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    I loved this one! I’ve been steering clear of sugar and carbs so instead of noodles I put in extra veggies. So good  

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have actually made this recipe at least 6 times as written and it’s as delicious as it looks. Thank you for sharing it. My husband says it’s the best creamy chicken soup he’s ever eaten.

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    What is the chicken stock mixture that you have to at aside consist of?

  10. Rated 3 out of 5

    I thought this soup came out just ok. It was just way too many onions for me. Maybe if I have browned them in butter. It also just wasn’t as creamy as I thought it would come out. I would have just preferred leaving the cream out and adding a little more spice of some sort. I have made many many of your recipes and have never been less than thrilled about how they turned out so I guess this was just one that wasn’t for me!

  11. Can this be cooked on high for a shorter amount of time?

  12. Can you cook it on high to cut the cooking time down?

  13. Absoloutley delicious! I didnt use pasta though i put potatoes in at the first stage along with the carrots ect and it turned out perfectly. Served with crusty seeded bread and butter

  14. I made this dish last night and it was delicious. I followed all the steps on the beginning and when it was done I just shredded the chicken in the same pot. I used cornstarch instead of flour and the heavy cream. I put cream, noodles and frozen peas in the crockpot and cooked an hour more dinner was done. This meal can be made on top of the stove in a pot for a quick meal in way less time. I will make this again very good recipe.

  15. I made this tonight, followed the recipe and it was amazing. Didn’t change a thing.
    A real winner 
    Thank you for sharing

  16. I’m new to the crockpot cooking craze and hoping you can clarify something for me… In step two you indicate “reserve 1 cup and set aside” and then in step five you state “Stir chicken, heavy cream mixture and egg noodles into the slow cooker”… Does this mean I should be taking out one cup of the liquids when I remove the chicken but all else stays in the slow cooker? And then when I add in the shredded chicken, cream mixture and noodles I’m adding it to everything else that was left in the slow cooker?

    Thank you for helping

  17. K. Made this and the noodle thing is a thing. If you want it to be soup… cook separately. It turned more into a casaroule… Good but not soup. I followed recipe exactly. Also a tad bland. I would say add more seasonings per taste… like a lot more. I love my crockpot and am sick of the chili, stew, pot roast staples so this as a nice diversion. I will keep messing with the recipe to make it better so thank you!

  18. So easy and such great flavor! 

  19. I made this tonight and it was amazing! Everyone loved it. There were 5 of us and we almost went through the whole crock pot. Next time I will have to make two crock pots so there will be left overs!

  20. I had the same results as Kristen, unfortunately. The broth didn’t thicken and the pasta was a complete mush. I had to throw most of it away. The flavors were fine, but not as creamy as I imagined. Also, maybe it would’ve been better to cook the pasta separately and throw it in the soup when serving.

  21. I’m sorry to be rude, but I have to be honest I just made this tonight and it was a total waste…the ‘creamy’ broth was milky white and did not look appetizing, and after putting the pasta in (against my better judgments since others said they cooked it separately) it was totally mushy and pastey tasting.  Will not be making this again, and yes it was cooked to the exact directions.

    • ​I’m sorry that this recipe did not turn out the way you had imagined. I only post recipes that have been successfully (and professionally) tested and re-tested by my team, and as you can see from the comments here, many of these readers have had great outcomes in the final dish as well. But I really appreciate your honesty and feedback.

  22. Does this freeze well?

  23. I made this and thought while reading the recipe when about to put the noodles in, “weird I have never put raw noodles in to cook themselves in” but I trusted the recipe and put the MEDIUM egg noodles in raw just like it called for, and put the crock on low for another 15 min before opening up to stir, when I was checking it at 15min I tried a noodle to see how they were cooking and they were like paste. It ruined the whole crock pot of soup because any bite you took had noodle paste in it. I went back and rechecked the recipe AND the noodles I used, to make sure that it wasn’t me that messed something up. but it wasn’t. I would NOT reccommend to anyone and it is thankfully not being wasted down the drain because I have a dog that will enjoy it anyways on top of her food.

  24. I have some leftover rotisserie chicken, do you think it would work as well?

  25. Could I substitute the pasta noodles for zucchini noodles?  If so, when would I add to the soup mixture?

  26. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. I make my own chicken stock which is much more flavorful. Also, I used chicken legs, as that was all I had available. Finally, I substituted half and half with 1% milk. I cooked the noodles separately using Spaetzle noodles. This soup is BOMB!

  27. Made the soup today. It was very tasty. I like the flavors of the thyme and rosemary. I cooked the noodles separately and just added them in the bowls before serving the soup. Thank you for the recipe I will be using it again.

  28. Can this be frozen or can I get to shredding the chicken part one day and finish the next? Can’t wait to make!

  29. could you do it on high heat? and for how long?

    this looks delicious!

  30. Yum! I defrosted osso bucco to pop in my slow cooker this morning but when I opened the package is smelt very suspicious and unappetizing All I had left were frozen chicken breasts so I took to the Internet to search for inspiration- I was determined to still use my slow cooker today! This sounds perfect! So I’ll be adding 2 only slightly defrosted chicken breasts, plus the raw corn from 3 ears of corn which I need to use up and baby pastina towards the end. Thank you! 

  31. This was superb! My family absolutely loved it. Highly recommend 🙂

  32. Great soup, except I had the same problem as others–the egg noodles turned into mush and ruined it. Next time I would cook them separately and add them right before serving. 

  33. Tried the recipe and really loved the flavor and ease of making it, but I would not recommend using whole wheat egg noodles because they kind of disintegrated into mush. Oops! I ended up cooking a separate pot of regular egg noodles and serving it with those and next time I will stick with the non-whole wheat kind!!

  34. Just had it for dinner, it was great. The only change I made was to use sour cream, as that is all I had. I love cooking in my slow cooker, it made heaps which I will freeze for lunches.

  35. Do you cook the chicken the same way if you’re not using a crock pot?

  36. It’s rare I can make anything my whole family loves but this recipe was it! Made it last week and they requested it again for this snowy day! Very easy and so tasty, leftovers are great the next day too!

  37. Do you cook the chicken before you put it in the crockpot? Thanks!

  38. What is the serving size?  One cup?

  39. I made this soup today, and it turned out great!  The house had a great aroma all afternoon!  I should have used larger noodles (I used wheat medium), but that was the only issue.  This is definitely a soup I would make many times!

  40. I really wish there were more comments on the actually MAKING of the recipe as opposed to how great it looks/sounds.  Just annoying to look through comments 🙁

    • I was just thinking the same thing! Yes, we all know it looks delicious! I just want some comments from people who’ve actually made it and can say how it turned out! And PLEASE don’t post a review of it if you changed/deleted/substituted 10 things, that’s just as annoying! 

      • I made this dish last night and it was delicious. I put everything in the crock pot and went about my business until 6 hours later next step. I used cornstarch instead of flour then added the cream and a tad more broth to the cornstarch , poured it in the crockpot, added noodles and frozen peas an hour later time to eat will make this again very good recipe. Can be done on top of the stove for a faster dinner which could be done in an hour and thirty minutes. Dinner served :-)!

  41. This looks amazing! I’m making this for dinner tonight!  It’s our Valentine’s Day Dinner as my husband is working late – it’s our dinner in!  #comfortfood #coldwinternight 

  42. Made it but used 1% milk instead of heavy cream (#becausekids) and it was AWESOME!!! Thank you so much!!

  43. Are the peas thawed when you stir them in just before serving, do you just add them frozen? Wasn’t sure if they’d “cook” that quickly or if they should be added at the same time as the noodles. Thank you…

  44. Thank you for this awesome recipe! I made it for dinner and my husband absolutely loved it!! Since we’re watching our waistlines, I used 1% milk in place of the cream so it wasn’t super creamy but it was delicious anyway (and without the guilt!!).

  45. Thank you for the recipe, it looks amazing!! If I am planning on using a frozen “vegetables for soup” bag that has all the veggies listed in the recipe, do I add it at the beginning with the chicken? 

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  46. Can this work without a slow cooker? 

  47. This soup looks goods.  Adding this to the menu!

  48. Ooh, honey I love comfort food! This looks so good, I can’t wait to try it.

  49. This looks great! Can’t wait to try it. Do you think I can substitute half and half for three cream? That way it will still have some creaminess and richness without  quite as much fat.

  50. This was very very good, made it last night!!

  51. This looks delicious! I need to new crockpot. Which one do you have?

  52. That looks simply delicious! Definitely going to try this recipe out pretty soon!

  53. This soup looks amazing! Totally going on next week’s menu plan!

  54. Great recipe! I think I need to go buy a slow cooker now…

  55. Thank you so much! I was trying to settle on what to bring to a potluck I’m going to today and I had most of the ingredients on hand. I have just enough time to throw it in the slow cooker. I am definitely bringing this today!

  56. This looks so yummy.  I can’t wait to make this before winters end.  Thank you so much for all your tasteful dishes. 

  57. Very tasty looking soup! I love that it can be made in the slow cooker, too! ♥ I think I’ll try this recipe out this week 🙂

    PS- Is there any way to remove the auto-playing video that pops up on your site? It eats up too much memory (for my ancient MBP at least, lol), and is really distracting.
