It’s October ya’ll. It doesn’t matter that it’s still 90 degrees today in Florida, it’s time to break out the crock pot and make something hearty and delicious.
Hubs doesn’t eat chicken (go ahead and gasp in shock, it’s a pretty common reaction… ok ya done? Moving along…) so I’ve adapted a few different classic slow cooker chicken noodle soup recipes into something he has no problem devouring by the bowlful.
This soup is seriously tasty, packed with veggies, and can be Paleo if you were to just leave out the noodles.
Slow Cooker Turkey Noodle Soup
1/2 Bone In Skin On Turkey Breast (usually about 2-2.5 lbs will do it)
2 c. sliced carrots (I buy the pre sliced ones)
2 c. chopped celery
1 c. chopped onion
3 c. egg noodles (or none if you want to keep it Paleo)
4 c. veggie broth
1. Add carrots, celery, and onion to crock pot. Place turkey breast on top. Add 4 c. veggie broth and 4 c. water. Season with salt and pepper (maybe 3-4 tbsp salt, 2 tbsp of pepper).
2. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high 4-6 hours (you know your slow cooker better than I do, so you be the judge).
3. Once cooking time is up, yank that turkey out of there and transfer it to a cutting board.
4. Throw the noodles into the slow cooker, cover and let them cook for 20ish minutes (or until they get soft).
5. While the noodles are doing their thing, go to work on that turkey. Discard the fat and bones, and shred the remaining meat with a fork. It should literally just fall off the bone for you. Tasty tasty.
6. Once the noodles are done, skim any fat off the top of the soup and throw your shredded turkey back in. Give it a stir and a quick taste test. Add salt or spices if need.
7. Nom the shit out of that soup, because it’s seriously delicious.
