Changed it a bit for me. Added 1 can of Chicken Cream Soup. Cut back 1 cup of the broth. Only put in 1/2 of the Onion. Added 1 basil leaf. Added 4 Potatoes cut into quarters. Came out excellent. I also didn't sauté anything, just added it to slow cooker all at once. I like my vegetables with a little more texture.

Forgot to mention. To save time I bought an already roasted whole chicken at the store and just shredded it.

Thank you for sharing the changes you have made.I would also like to try it.

Doesn't the slow cooker cook the chicken completely? What happens if you don't do any of the Sauteing?

Also, instead of prepping the carrots/celery/onions, I'm thinking of just using a bag of mixed frozen vegetables like the PictSweet Asian Medley... and/or the dried vegetable soup mix from Harmony House.

Finally, maybe instead of the pasta instant noodles, I'll try with Sea Tangle's kelp noodles (konaberry or green tea).

Anyone recommendations for a good Bouillon base stock? Grace, Penzey, 'Better Than Bouillon Bases', Herb-Ox Chicken, GoBio!, Minor's, Goya??

Thanks for your comment.

Yes, the chicken will be cooked completely, as we are roasting and shredding the chicken earlier and then cooking it slowly. roasting the chicken brings in a extra flavor to it and also can be shredded easily. vegetables are sauteed in the same pan to include all the chicken flavors left in the pan. Can add the vegetables and chicken without sauteing but it will take longer time.Frozen vegetables can also be used.I have not tried Sea Tangle's kelp noodles for this soup, try and let me know.
