Better-Than-Grandma's Chicken and Noodles
- In a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, place carrots, parsnips, onions, and celery. Top with chicken; sprinkle with thyme, sage, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour chicken broth and sherry over chicken.
- Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 hours. Stir in noodles. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Cover; cook for 1 to 1 1/2 hours more or until noodles are tender.
- Remove chicken. When cool enough to handle, coarsely shred chicken and stir into mixture in slow cooker. Add peas; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. If desired, garnish with fresh sage leaves.

I doubled the chicken broth -- 28 oz was no way near enough broth! Otherwise, awesome recipe!
