I could eat soup EVERY night...this is truly COMFORT FOOD!
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped carrots (I use my Vidalia chopper on this)
1 cup chopped celery (with tops)
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp olive oil
Combine these ingredients in the crock pot...wait 2 hours and add the mixture:
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp thyme (I used my own lemon thyme)
1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
Saute this for about 5 min.
Take out of the crockpot and finish on the stove. Add 6 cups chicken broth, potatoes and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover for 15-20 min, until potatoes are tender. Stir in chicken and noodles and simmer for about 10 minutes. Reduce heat, stir in milk; heat through but don't boil.
