I like this more than Bob Evan's soup. Make sure to get the noodles suggested in the recipe. I think it makes a big difference.
COPYCAT BOB EVANS CHICKEN & NOODLES
9 c. chicken broth
3/4 c. carrots, chopped
3/4 c. celery, chopped
1 c. onion, chopped
1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast
1lb pkg. homestyle noodles
In large (6 qt. or larger) crockpot, add broth, vegetables, chicken, butter and seasonings. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours or on high for 3.
Remove chicken and shred with a fork. Return back to crockpot. Add noodles; cook for another hour on low.
I kept the onion and celery whole so I could take them out. I used a bone in chicken breast as well since that's what I had thawed and ready to roll.
