Ingredients

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon tomato paste

One 1-ounce package dry onion soup mix

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

8 ounces button mushrooms, quartered

6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 1 3/4 pounds)

12 ounces egg noodles

4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces

4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature 

Chopped fresh parsley, for serving

Directions

Special equipment:
a 6-quart slow cooker
  1. Whisk together the broth, flour, tomato paste, onion soup mix, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl until combined. Add to a 6-quart slow cooker and top with the mushrooms and chicken. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.
  2. When ready to serve, bring a large pot of water to a boil; salt the water generously. Add the noodles and cook until al dente according to the package directions. Drain and toss in a large bowl with the butter until the butter is melted and the noodles are completely coated.
