Easy Chicken Soup


Sorry guys no pictures with this one, it was Halloween night that I made it and it was between getting decorations going, make up…. you get the picture!  It all started when I wanted to make a roast, but alas my roast had seen better days and we had to toss it, oops!

I knew I wanted to make something in the crockpot and then I remembered I had some Gnocchi in the pantry!  I had bought it to throw in some soup but hadn’t used it yet.  So I started digging and found 2 cans of white chicken meat I had bought for something else.  So soup it was!

Normally when I have made soup in the past I have used chicken stock, but I had none on hand, so I made do with ….. soup!  I used noodles and gnocchi, but you could use dumplings if you want.  I actually had just bought some and thought about using them.  I like to make things from scratch but sometimes you need those fast meals so I bought some frozen ones to try.

You can throw in some veggies, carrots, peas, celery.  I didn’t have anything on hand, but I would have thrown in some frozen peas at least if I did.

So here is my easy, throw together Chicken Soup.  Enjoy!

 

Easy Chicken Soup

1 pkg Reams Homestyle Egg Noodles
1 pkg Gnocchi
2 cans white chicken meat
2 cans cream of chicken
5 cups water
1-2 Tbsp chicken soup base – I like L B Jamison’s

Put the water, cream of chicken, soup base and chicken meat into the crockpot, let it cook on low for 2-4 hours, really it’s up to you.  Add whatever seasoning you want to it, I added a bay leaf.  About 20 – 30 min before you are ready to eat turn it to high and then add the noodles and gnocchi.  Let cook on high until everything is soft.
