A twist on your usual chicken noodle soup – just plain yummy and super kid friendly too!

Ingredients:
4-5 pieces of chicken (chicken breast preferably)
4 carrots, sliced
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups water
4 chicken broth cubes
1 tsp garlic salt
1 lb egg noodles
salt & pepper

Instructions:
Add carrots to your crock pot, then add chicken, onion, water, cubes and spices (leaving out the noodles). Turn the crock pot on low and cook for about eight hours.

When almost ready, cook egg noodles according to package instructions. While the noodles cook, take chicken pieces out and cut into child-friendly, bite-size pieces. Place chicken pieces & cooked noodles in the crock pot.

If needed, mix cornstarch, water and a bit of broth together and add to your chicken and noodles to thicken.

Enjoy!
