Friend, this soup is SO incredibly easy to make. It’s the kind of meal that you quickly throw into your crockpot in the morning, and let it do its thing all day long. Then all you have to do is a quick finishing touch and boom DINNER IS DONE!

We all need easy dinners, right? That’s this one.

In our house, we’ve been loving this soup since Hunter was just a little guy. Almost 8 years later we still love! It’s still one I keep coming back to because it is filled with so much nourishing, good for you ingredients. And who doesn’t love chicken noodle soup?!

A key to make this the most nourishing soup is to use bone broth. If you’ve never made it at home, definitely try my crockpot bone broth recipe – it’s super simple and a staple to keep on hand, especially during the cooler months.

How to make crockpot chicken noodle and kale soup

  1. In the bottom of your crockpot, layer onions, carrots, celery, garlic and kale. Season chicken thighs with sea salt and pepper then lay them on top.  Pour chicken broth into the crockpot.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  2. After 6 -8 hours, turn the crockpot heat onto high. Using forks or kitchen tongs, lightly shred the chicken (you can remove the thighs as well and shred outside the crockpot).  This should be easy since they have cooked so long.  Stir in the noodles, put the lid on and allow the noodles to cook and soften for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Everyone in the house enjoyed it…even my daughter who is very hard to please.:-) I put it in the slow cooker and then added the noodles about 1 hour before serving. Great flavor! Will for sure make this again.
