Freezer to Crockpot Chicken and Noodles Recipe


I love how chicken comes out of a slow cooker, just so tender and melts in your mouth. This dinner is so easy to throw together, just a few simple ingredients and plenty of time in the crockpot is all you need. This recipe is one you can tweak by adding some chopped veggies:  like carrots, celery, and onions. We love the thick egg noodles, it reminds me of the Chicken Noodle Soup my Grandma Brown used to make. We like to serve this over biscuits or serve with oyster crackers.

Freezer to Crockpot Chicken and Noodles 

This is one of the easiest meals to prepare. The best part is it is healthy and you can put in the crockpot, head out to work, and come home to your house smelling AMAZING ;-)  For all freezer meals make sure to label your freezer bag with the name of the recipe, cooking instructions, and prep date. Freezer meals can be frozen for up to 3 months.  

Serves: 8 to 10

Here are some other awesome things about freezer-to-crockpot meals:

  • Most of these meals require no cooking ahead of time, so that means the recipes are very easy to prep.
  • The meals cook for the first time out of the freezer so they don’t taste like leftovers (BUT leftovers are okay right?!)
  • For us that coupon, we can take advantage of all the sales and freeze a couple at a time. (Most freezer meals will last for at least 3 months.)

    This is super, though the egg noodles in the photo are an 18 oz pack, not 12oz as the recipe states? Also, is each recipe making one freezer meal or two??

    • says

      As recipe states, it is 12 oz.. . we get additional and freeze for later meals. Each meal states if it makes one or two. Hope that helps!
