Let me start off by saying my grandmother has no affiliation with this soup. It just sounds better saying Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup. Much cozier, don't you think?
I made a big batch of this a week ago when the whole house was sneezing, coughing and catching snot left and right. Of course the hot soup made my nose run more, but it was worth it. Even better, I baked up some of my No-Knead Artisan Bread to go along side for dunking purposes.
If you've been a reader for awhile you'll know I'm a lover of any and all things that cook in the slow cooker and require little work. I'm happy to say this dish is one of them! Low and slow.
Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup
1 small onion, diced
2 carrots (or about 15 baby carrots), diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 c. chicken stock
1 c. water
1 t. lemon pepper seasoning
1 t. dill
1 t. salt
1 t. parsley
1/2 lb. dry pasta
4 c. shredded chicken
Place all ingredients in a large slow cooker (minus the noodles) on low. Cook for at least 6 hours, or all day if at work. Stir in uncooked noodles 30-45 minutes before serving. Soup is ready when noodles are tender.
Pretty heavenly looking, right?
I cannot believe it is only 10 (TEN!) days left until Christmas. I am by no means ready. I'd say about 60%. Thankfully my husband's side isn't meeting until a few days after Christmas, so it gives me more time! Each year, I'm envious of those that have their shopping done way prior to the holiday season. I've never been one of those. For me, it's needs to be reeking Santa, Christmas trees, tinsel, holly, eggnog and grumpy shoppers to get me into the spirit of shopping.
