RECIPE: Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

We’ve had sick kids for weeks now and so I thought what better lunch is there when you’re sick than soup.  This recipe is absolutely delicious, full of flavour and even better when you can throw all the ingredients in and let the slow cooker do all the work for you.  I have frozen the leftovers in batches so that I can send it to school in their thermos when the weather turns to freezing over the coming weeks.
