Time is often of the essence at my house. Although we do not have children, we seem to be busy all of the time. If there isn't a night meeting to attend, there is something to be done on the farm. With that being said, I ran across this sign at the Indiana State Fair in the Pioneer Building..."Without good farming, there can be no good food. Without good food, there can be no life."
Bill and I strive each year to be good stewards of the farm ground that we are entrusted with by our landlords. We want to be good farming neighbors to those that live around us. We also like to eat "good" food.
Everyone enjoys chicken and noodles, but when you run short of time, try using your slow cooker!
Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles
4-5 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
2 cans (14.5oz) of chicken broth
2 cans (10.5 oz) Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup of butter
24 oz bag of frozen egg noodles
Put the first 4 ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Remove the chicken and shred (I actually shred the chicken in the slow cooker). Return the chicken to the slow cooker , add the egg noodles and cook for another 2-3 hours (until the noodles are tender). Add salt/pepper to taste.
For a complete meal, serve these with Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes and Homemade Sweet Rolls.
