I got this simple and cost effective recipe from something I got from the Money Saving Mom years and years ago. I shared it with my homeschool support group and I’m sharing it here today. This recipe has stood the test of time in our house and is an easy one to throw together.
Start by putting enough chicken breast in the crockpot for your family. We are a family of four so one large chicken breast (one pound) works for us. Then add some carrot. We like our carrot with zero crunch in the end, so I slice them up on my mandolin.
Next add about 3-6 cups of water or broth. I started with 3 cups this day. It’d been a while since I’d made this and forgot how much water/broth I usually use.
I used my sprouted spelt drop biscuit dough and cut it thinner for the noodles.
Add your noodles and cook for another 30-60 minutes, until the noodles are as done as you like them. You can use Reemes frozen noodles, as that is what the original recipe called for. When we went to serve the dish, I realized that we wanted it more of a soup and quickly heated up a can of chicken broth (about 2 cups) and added it to the pot.
- 1# chicken breast (I used frozen)
- 2 carrots, sliced
- 3 cups water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon basil
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/3 batch of sprouted spelt drop biscuit dough or a bag of frozen Reemes noodles
- Place all ingredients in the crock pot except the noodles.
- Cook on high for about 3-4 hours, until the chicken can be shredded easily.
- Add the noodles and cook for another 30-60 minutes on high, until noodles are done.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as we do.
Until next time, God bless,
