Yummm, bring on the winter chicken noodle soup!


1 medium onion, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
2 celery stalks, sliced
3/4 c. frozen peas
1 lb. chicken thighs
2 c. wide egg noodles
1 c. canned tomatoes
32 oz. chicken broth
1 t. pepper
1 t. dried thyme
1 t. italian herb seasoning
1 t. oregano
1 t. salt
Bay leaves
1 t. cilantro
1 t. marjoram
1 t. basil


Put onion, carrots, and celery in a crock pot.  Layer chicken thighs on top of vegetables (I put my on frozen).  Add in tomatoes, broth, and bay leaves.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours.  In the last hour, remove chicken and shred.  Cook noodles according to package instructions, reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking water.  Add chicken back to the crock pot, along with the cooked noodles, reserved water, and spices.  Cook until heated through.
