Occasionally, I get stuck with a few chicken breasts I just don’t know what to do with after buying a huge family pack.

This crockpot chicken and noodles recipe is a no brainer dinner that works PERFECT!! The whole family loves it!

All you have to do here is marinate your chicken, throw in some ingredients, and turn on the crockpot! (And cook up the noodles if you’re serving them that way!)

This dish is truly easy to make, it’s even good for those super busy weeknights when you’d normally be forced to order takeout in order to keep everyone happy.

What is the best dressing to use?

My personal favorite dressing is Ken’s Steakhouse Creamy Caesar. It has the best combination of flavors and is perfectly creamy. That being said, it’s like ranch…everyone has their favorite. Just use what you and your family like!

What do you serve with chicken and noodles?

You can serve this chicken and noodles dish a number of ways! In fact, you don’t have to serve it over noodles at all.

You can also serve it in a whole-wheat tortilla as a lunch wrap, or in a sandwich (I love it on a brioche bun!).

As far as sides go, grab your favorites! A pasta dish goes great with a side of toasted bread while a lunch wrap or sandwich is best paired with a salad, steamed veggies, or even some fries.

What do you do with leftover egg noodles?

If you end up with more egg noodles than you know what to do with, you may need to repurpose them. Don’t head for the trash just yet, there are a few things you can do!

You can use them for casseroles, soups, ravioli, or even turn them into muffins. Egg noodles are very versatile and can turn into so many new and interesting recipes.

Can you freeze chicken and noodles?

You sure can! I love to make this and then freeze it. It makes the ideal dump meal too. Simply prep the marinade, freeze, thaw overnight, and then dump them in the crockpot when you’re ready to begin cooking.

What Size Crockpot Should I Use?

For this recipe, I would use a 7-quart crockpot. You may also want to use a crockpot liner which allows for less mess when it is time to clean up.

If you want to double a recipe to freeze a 10-quart crockpot may be more what you are looking for.
