On My Hearth: Slow Mo' Saturday

We're supposed to be sailing today but apparently Mother Nature has other ideas as it's been raining for hours. I'm hoping that the skies clear up a bit and we're able to continue on with our plan, but this easy slow cooker chicken will be perfect after a day out on the water or a cozy day at home.

I'm using boneless chicken breasts because that's what I have on hand, and fresh basil from my garden instead of dried.

Chicken and Noodles

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Main Dish

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 celery stalks -- cut up
2 carrots -- cut up
1 large onion -- sliced
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dried basil
4 cups uncooked noodles
1 chicken

Place the veggies on the bottom of the pot, put the chicken on top, followed by the seasonings. Pour 3 cups of water over. Set it on low and cook for 8-10 hrs. Take chicken out (carefully, because it will come off the bones) and put noodles in the broth, turning it up to high. Let the noodles cook for 45 minutes, while you take the meat off the bones. Mix the meat in. This is like a very thick chicken soup and the basil makes this delicious!

I love 'thick' soups. Soup and chili season has arrived up here in NH - it is chilly today. We have also had lots of rain. I dug out an old Weight Watcher's Cookbook recently and last night made chicken waldorf stirfry - it was really easy and delicious. My husband had seconds - always a good sign! Enjoy your weekend.
