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.

If using fresh onions, cook in enough boiling water to cover for 30 to 60 seconds; drain and rinse with cold water. Cut off root ends and slip off peels.

Definitely double the broth and sherry! Couldn't find frozen egg noodles so cooked dried on stove and added to each bowl; better for leftovers too. I think chicken will look nicer diced rather than shredded.

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