1. left over cooked chicken pieces (no skin or bones) aprox. 2 heaping cups. I happened to have two left over baked chicken breasts and a drumstick which did the trick.
2. 2 large containers of Chicken broth. aprox. 60-70 ounces
3. veggies, use whatever you like. I used peas (1 small bag), corn (1 small bag), carrots (aprox. 6 cut into small pieces), 5 stalks of celery chopped and one small onion chopped ultra thin.
4. spices. 2tsp. of poultry seasoning (in spice aisle), 2 tsp of Italian seasoning, I cut up some fresh basil and oregano, salt and pepper to taste. You could use any seasoning you like on Chicken -Mr. or Mrs. Dash, garlic...whatever floats your boat.
5. 1/2 bag of egg noodles.
Okay place all firm veggies in bottom of your crock. Leave out corn and peas until later. add chicken chunks....season the veggies and chicken chunks with your spices and seasonings in #4. Mix it really well. Add broth, let this combo sit in your fridge over night...this is KEY. It really gives the flavor a boost.
