No, the noodles are not made of chicken. Yes, I know it’s a silly name. I’m sure this dish was originally called chicken and noodles, but in my family it has always just been chicken noodles. Whatever you call this meal, it is super easy to make and especially comforting on a cold winter’s night, but the calorie count is not bad!! Pair it with a big green salad or your favorite steamed vegetables and you’ve got yourself a well-balanced meal.
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can reduced fat cream of chicken soup
1 can fat-free chicken broth
8 ounces extra-wide noodles
If you want your chicken to look brown, then brown it a little in a frying pan before cooking. Otherwise, just put the chicken in the crockpot, cover with cream of chicken soup (I use a basting brush to spread it around). Then pour in the chicken broth, set the crockpot to high and let cook for 4-6 hours, until the inside of the chicken registers 180F on a meat thermometer.
Cook noodles as directed on package. Remove chicken to a warm oven, then with crockpot still on high, slowly stir in a small amount oif flour or cornstarch until sauce is slightly thickened. Serve chicken over noodles and top with sauce.
