This year's school pictures will make EXCELLENT blackmail later in life...but honestly...this is them!
Modified from Betty Crocker
1 1/2 lbs chicken (I used chicken breasts, they used thighs)
1 lb carrots, diced
1 small onion, diced (they used fake....why?)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp pepper
1 bay leaf
2 tbsp celery flakes (you can use real celery, they did....but I never have it and I don't like buying it as I won't use it, so this is my solution.)
1 clove garlic, minced
32 oz chicken broth (I used chicken bouillon and water)
1 cup frozen peas (they used snow pea pods)
2 cups wide egg noodles, uncooked
Place everything but the peas and noodles in crock pot. Cover and cook for 8-9 hours on low.
After this time frame, pull out chicken and shred. Remove to crock pot. Stir in peas and noodles. Increase to high. Cover and cook for 20 more minutes or until noodles are done. Remove bay leaf before serving.
Serves 6 (at least!)
