Amish Style Chicken and Noodles

Living just north of Indiana, we always hear people rave about the chicken and noodles they get when eating out at restaurants in Shipshewana. For those of you not in the know, Shipshewana is a little town originally known for its Amish community. How much of it is still owned and run by them, I have no idea. Growing up, we knew it was Amish, but now days I wonder if it all hasn’t been a bit commercialized. But I digress….. Either way, the Chicken and Noodles there are to DIE for.

With just a few easy ingredients, I have been able to capture that flavor in my own homemade Chicken and Noodles. Really! In fact, this is so good, I would love to just roll around in a vat of it. The flavors are out of this world! Don’t believe me? Make this recipe once and you will be hooked for life.

Not only does this recipe have just a few ingredients, you totally get to use your slow cooker to make it. Easy, easy, easy! Start by turning your crock pot on high. Add in 1 can of cream of celery soup, 1 can of cream of chicken soup, 1 can of chicken broth, and a stick of butter.


I’ll be the first to admit, what is in the crock pot doesn’t look all that great to begin with, but trust me. Mix it all together and then add in your frozen chicken breasts. I used two large breasts, but you can always add more if you love lots of protein. Now walk away. That’s right, you have 4 hours to kill. Take a nap, watch a movie, whatever!


After about 4 hours, the chicken will be ready to shred. Simply pull it out of the crock pot and use a fork to shred it up. Once your breast are all nicely shredded (yes, I know that sounded weird) simply dump it all back in the crock pot and wait another hour.


I know that a lot of recipes for Amish style noodles call for frozen noodle. Blah. Since we do live within driving distance to Shipshewana, we are lucky enough out local market carries these fabulous noodles they make near there. If you can’t get your hands on this brand (which I love, love, love) try to find a thicker style of egg noodle to use.

Turn your crock pot to low and pour the bag of noodles in. It will seem like there are too many as some will be sticking up out of the liquid, but trust me, put em all in. The noodles will suck up all the liquid and be infused with that yummy goodness. It will take about an hour for the noodles to do their thing. Meanwhile, whip up some mashed potatoes. Trust me, this dish is perfect and traditionally served over mashed potatoes.



Tell me this doesn’t look mouth watering!?!? I promise, if you try just one new recipe this year, make it this one. I can’t stress to you enough how good this is! Your taste buds will thank you. Your family will thank you. Your waist might not thank you, but tell it to sit down, shut up, and to eat some of these amazing noodles!

  1. I don't have access to the noodles you have. Would Reames frozen noodles work and how would I change the time? Thaw first? Reames are very good noodles. Thanks. I want to ;make this for my friends mother. She is 91 and not doing very well.

    1. I have never heard of them, but to be honest, if they are frozen, I would just add them in sooner! That will give them time to thaw and cook. 🙂

  2. Oh wow, if noodles served over pasta aren't comfort food, then nothing is! I really enjoyed reading about the story behind this recipe, Mindie, and I'm so glad you shared your Amish Style Chicken and Noodles with us at Hearth and Soul.

  3. Interesting coincidence…I just got home from Rochester, Indiana yesterday. My husbands family is from there. Thanks for sharing at Family Joy Blog linkup. Come back and join us again!

    1. Thanks for the info. I did have it monetized but with the move I have to figure out how to get it all set back up on wordpress. I am learning and will get there as quickly as possible.

  5. I made this tonight and it was delicious!! I did have to add about 1 1/2c. of chicken broth in the last hour. It seemed very dry after the noodles absorbed the broth/sauce. My husband loved it.
