Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

This is absolutely the best chicken noodle soup. The chicken is so tender from the crock pot, and the soup has a lot of flavor. You can also reduce the amount of broth and serve it as a chicken and noodle dish rather than soup.

1 large Onion -- sliced
2 Carrot -- sliced
2 Celery stalks -- sliced
4 ounces Mushrooms
2 teaspoons Salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Thyme
1 tablespoon Parsley
10 ounces Peas -- frozen
3 Chicken breasts
5 cups - Water
3 cups Noodles

Directions:  Place all ingredients in crockpot, except noodles, in order listed. Cover and cook on LOW 8 hours (HIGH 4 hours). Add noodles. Cook on HIGH another 1/2 to one hour until noodles are cooked

-I used chicken broth.
-I did not add mushrooms.
-I used whole grain egg noodles.

Here's what you will need:
Cut up the veggies.
Place the frozen veggies in the bottom of the crockpot.
Lay the chicken on top of the frozen veggies.
Add the chicken broth.
After it has cooked for 4-5 hours, shred the chicken up.
Add the noodles and cook about 30 minutes or until noodles are cooked.
