Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

This is my mom's recipe, and Chad's all-time favorite! I made it for dinner tonight. This fills my 8 qt crockpot to the brim, so half the recipe if you have a smaller crockpot. 

1 lb. chicken tenders ( I will use 2 large frozen breasts)
3/4 pkg. Country Noodles
1 lg. onion, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 tsp. each of onion and celery salts (use extra bouillon if you don't have these)
2 cups grated carrots
about 3 quarts of water
3 Tblsp. instant chicken bouillon

Put all of the above into crockpot (except noodles) and start to simmer. Cook for 4-5 hours on high, 6-7 hours on low.

1/2 cup real butter (no margarine)
3/4 cup flour
1 quart milk
Bring to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes.

Make sauce and add to the crockpot. Add the country noodles last, about an hour or so before eating so they don't get mushy. Chad likes a lot of noodles so I use more than what the recipe calls for. I usually cook on low for 4 hours or so until everything is done. This recipe also works well on the stove, just adapt your cooking time. Serve with rolls.

I need to buy a couple spices, including: celery salt and onion salt.

We enjoyed this soup. I added 1 can of cream of chicken soup and some extra chicken bouillon.

Also I added homemade noodles - yummy!

This is the soup I sent to Tiff's Thanksgiving weekend. Bev wanted the recipe. Here it is! I LOVE this soup. Comfort food at it's best.
