Stella's Crock Pot Chicken Noodles

Stella's Crock Pot Chicken Noodles

One of my mom’s signature dishes that was passed down through our family is homemade chicken noodles.  She would fix a five gallon kettle of them for Thanksgiving!  However, sometimes when it was just a few people over for dinner, she would fix a crock pot version using Reames brand frozen noodles.  This was faster than going to the trouble of making noodles from scratch.  In honor of mom, here’s the recipe. -John Morgan
