2 onions, chopped
2 stalks celery, sliced
3 carrots, sliced
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon basil
3 Tablespoons dry parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon leaf thyme
1 package frozen peas (10 oz.)
4 cups water or chicken stock
whole fryer, 2-1/2 to 3 pounds (this gives the soup much more flavor then using boneless chicken breasts)
1 cup uncooked noodles (optional)
1. Put everything into the crock pot except for the noodles.
2. Cover and cook on low 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours.
3. An hour before serving, remove the chicken and let it cool. Remove the meat from the chicken being careful to seperate it from any bones and put meat back into crock pot, discard any bones, skin and fat.
Optional for Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup: Add the noodles and set to high setting. Cover and cook 1 hour.
Serve with oyster crackers.
| Here is a fun idea your kids will love!Soldier Sandwiches|
My grandmother used to make these for me when I was little and I always loved them! When I would visit her I always asked for these at lunchtime.
Create your child's favorite sandwich: Grilled Cheese, Tuna, etc... Then simply cut the sandwich into 4 strips creating soldiers!
Sounds so simple but when you create the image in a childs mind about little soldiers their imagination will take over from there. Just try it and see how often they start asking you to make soldier sandwiches!
P.S. The tuna soldier sandwiches were always my favorite with my grandma's homemade crockpot chicken soup! Mmm Mmm!
