It's a Keeper!

If a new recipe makes it past the trial run, I slip it into the menu again...if it gets requested a third time, it's a keeper! And it's really a bonus if my friend, the crockpot, can work all day so I don't have to!
Here's a recipe I've tweaked to our liking and size. Take note, I don't use any fancy spices I can't pronounce :)

Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup
4 lbs cut up chicken pieces
4 cups water
6 cups chicken broth
4 chicken bullion cubes
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 tbsp parsley flakes
2 tsp minced garlic
12 oz (or more) noodles (I use a short, fine egg noodle like Manischewitz)
Place all ingredients except noodles in crockpot, cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours. Remove chicken, debone and return meat to crock. Cook noodles separately and add to crock (reserving liquid in case you need more in the soup).

And did I mention I even worked this into my Weight Watcher's plan ~ and so far I've said goodbye to 6 pounds!

An idea for your next fundraiser, you need to put together a cookbook. You have such great ideas that will work in any families budget.

Connie could you share the serving size, and WW points for this? Are you doing the new POints Plus? I've started but lacking motivatin currently. Thanks,

I plugged the recipe into the recipe builder, but I had to do a lot of guesswork. If the chicken cooks down to 2 pounds, you use 12 oz of noodles, and consider this 12 servings (which it's probably more!), it's 9 points plus per serving.
Sorry that's so vague.
