Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup is filled with delicious homemade gluten free egg noodles. Pure deliciousness and comfort.
Last year, as the temperature started to change and the cold air moved in, I was suddenly craving chicken noodle soup. I wanted a bowl of warm, delicious soup with that subtle chicken taste and those fabulous egg noodles.
The only problem is that being gluten free, it’s really hard to find delicious egg noodles that are gluten free. That was, until I discovered making them myself was simple and they tasted much better than any store-bought egg noodles!
That led to my new love affair with homemade egg noodles. I suddenly discovered that I could make even more of those gluten-filled foods that I loved in my own kitchen, but gluten-free, and with very few added ingredients.
After making my chicken noodle soup last year and loving it, I decided to try it again recently, but this time making it in the slow cooker. Of course, it turned out wonderfully and with very little work on my part!
The biggest thing to remember is that you do not put the noodles in the slow cooker until the last 30 minutes of cook time. At that point, you will turn it to high in order to cook the noodles.
When it comes to slow cooking, if you put noodles in at the beginning of cooking time, many times you will have nothing but mush when the rest of the soup is done cooking - especially if you use store bought noodles.
I like to make the dough for these gluten free noodles the day before, or when I have time, then store it in the fridge until I’m ready to add them into the slow cooker. Just before I add them in, I roll the dough out and slice them to the perfect size, and then I let them dry just a bit before tossing them in with the rest of the soup ingredients.
These noodles are more of dumpling consistency; do not have that store bought pasta noodle taste in your mind. I love this soup because it’s very light and not a strong flavor.
It’s perfect if you are on the mend from sickness or if you simply want a light and warm dinner.
