I do not recommend cooking chicken from frozen in the crockpot. Frozen meat takes longer to cook, and that can allow time for dangerous bacteria to grow.
No. It is perfectly safe to put the chicken in the crockpot raw. Follow the recipe as written for best results.
Yes! Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are a delicious substitute for chicken breasts. They are fattier, so you may wish to skim some fat from the broth after step 2.
I like egg noodles because they hold up well in the soup and soak up a lot of flavor. You could also use ditalini, orzo, or bowties.
There are many ways to make this soup even more flavorful. You could lightly sear the chicken breasts before adding them to the crockpot, use homemade chicken broth, or add cheese rinds to the broth (be sure to remove them when you remove the bay leaves). After the soup has finished cooking, you could add a squeeze of lemon juice or a drizzle of heavy cream before serving.
Yes; however, I recommend making the soup without the noodles and then cooking and adding the noodles when you’re ready to eat the soup. Follow the directions for cooking the noodles al dente, then stir them into the reheated soup and serve immediately.
