I’m admittedly not a fan of chicken noodle soup. I think I just have a notion that you should only have it when you are nursing a cold. BUT this chicken noodle soup is the exception. I could eat it everyday for lunch along with a nice toasty sandwich. Juicy and flavorful chicken thighs, mushrooms, rich cream and thin egg noodles. Seriously yum.
We polished off every last bit of this soup at our house. We served it for dinner along with a nice green tossed salad and some crusty bread with butter. It was just enough for 4 bowls plus another 1/2 bowl for 3 of us.
Let the chicken and mushrooms simmer away all day with the seasonings. Then when it’s dinner time you will add the cream and noodles and bump the heat up to high. Another 30 minutes and dinner is ready!

I cooked this for 7 hours on low in my 4 quart round slow cooker
