Slow Cooked Chicken Noodle Soup

I have a small passion for my little 3 quart crock pot. If my husband knew how to cook with it... holy buckets, would I be the happiest wife ever!

A woman at work is VERY pregnant and we had her baby shower on Friday - since it's still kinda chilly in south central Indiana, I decided to make home made chicken noodle soup.

I chopped everything up and then brought it all to work to throw in the crock pot at 8 am. Blech, to early!

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

1 lb organic chicken UNCOOKED (sorry, my environmental tendencies have come out MUCH more)
1/2 bag baby carrots, chopped in half
2 - 3 celery stems, chopped
1 tsp thyme
salt & pepper to taste
Juice of 1 lemon
5 -6 cups of water
1 - 2 cans of chicken stock
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp greek seasoning (don't ask, just do)
1 tsp oregano (I used the dried Mediterranean oregano)
1/2 tsp paprika
1 package egg noodles or something with a similar shape

Chop the chicken into bite size pieces, throw into a glass bowl or plastic bag. Add the lemon juice, greek seasoning, about 3 tbsp olive oil and paprika. Let sit in refrigerator overnight.

The next morning - throw everything into the crockpot except the noodles.

Put the noodles in about 45 minutes to 1 hour before you serve.

Yep, easy. VERY easy.

In fact, I almost didn't want to post this because this is the type of recipe that I've been making for the past 3 weeks!
