almost like my dad's chicken noodle soup

So yesterday I broke out my crock pot , something I don't do quite enough. However, I am always impressed with how my food taste so good when it cooks in there for just a few hours.
  Since I have gotten married, I have been trying to copy my dad's chicken noodle soup recipe. Beings he just throws things in a pot its been hard! However after a few attempts I think I have come pretty close.

                       Almost like my dad's
                      Chicken Noodle Soup

2 quarts plus 2 cups of chicken stock

3 sticks of celery chopped fine

1/2 of one large yellow or sweet onion diced

2.5 cups Gluten free brown rice noodles ( you can use regular as well)

1 tsp. of the following : Garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. ( you can adjust this to taste )

4 Chicken thighs.

1 medium size bag of frozen corn

Place everything in your crockpot except the noodles. I cooked mine on high for 3 hours because of time, however you could also put it on low for a little longer.

Cook the noodles in a separate pan, just until they are al dente. Then add the noodles and the water they are cooking in to the crock pot. If you drain them first they will absorb too much of the chicken stock, which will result with having less broth.

Serve hot and enjoy !
