Homemade chicken noodle soup is perfect on a cold day or when you’re feeling a little under the weather. We have had a lot of appropriate days for it, so I put some together in a freezer bag meal. It is all ready to pull out of the freezer and throw in the slow cooker, but you do have one dry ingredient to add later in the day. Check out the recipe below.
