Well, we made it through another Christmas! Unfortunately our family was hit with a pretty nasty virus this December which derailed most of our Christmas plans, but we managed to make the best of it with a few low-key get-togethers with friends, homemade lemon ginger tea, lots of movies and time on the couch, and several bowls of this hearty, healthy Best Ever Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup.
One thing I’ve discovered over the last year is that having children in school means you’re actually inviting every virus into your home whether you want to or not – it doesn’t seem to matter how much hand-washing we do or how healthy our diets are, every now and then the kids come home from school with a stuffy nose or fever and then it slowly makes its way through the family. Seriously, you guys, I’ve even been juicing throughout December to boost our immune systems and giving away all the Christmas chocolate and we STILL got this stinkin’ virus!
And during the winter season when viruses rear their ugly heads, I’ve GOT to have this Best Ever Chicken Noodle Soup on repeat in my kitchen. I often make my own chicken or vegetable stock and use that in this soup, although you can easily use your favourite low-sodium chicken stock from the grocery store and it will be just as great.

And feel free to use whatever noodles you prefer in this Best Ever Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup. I sometimes use macaroni, if that’s all I have on hand, and even though our favourite is rotini or fusilli, even spaghetti noodles cracked into thirds will do just fine. And a great hack to make this soup even easier – use rotisserie chicken! I keep some grilled or poached chicken breasts in my freezer to use in soups or salads, but a grocery store rotisserie chicken is a great time-saver if you need some cooked chicken quickly. Just remove the skin and cut into bite-sized pieces!
And feel free to use whatever vegetables you wish! My kids love carrots best, but I’ve also added frozen green beans and even frozen corn in a pinch. It’s really up to you! And serve with some fresh whole grain bread or crusty artisan bread for dipping and you’ve got a majorly delicious and wholesome meal that’s sure to help ease your sickness or at least keep you warm on cold winter days!
