Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

My family has all been really sick with a stomach virus..and I thought nothing is better than homemade chicken noodle soup after being sick. I looked at a few recipes, and they were all really high in sodium, so I decided to take a stab at my own. It was so yummy! Dustin took the leftovers to work today! So here you are...

4 cups low sodium chicken broth
4 cups water
3 medium chicken breasts
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1 diced medium yellow onion
1/4 cup dried parsley
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tbpn dried basil
6-8 ounces of noodle of choice

Place everything but the noodles in the crock pot and cook on low for 5 hours. After 5 hours pull out chicken breast and cut into pieces. Put chicken breast and noodles into crock pot and cook on high for 30-45 minutes. I used a multigrain noodle instead of egg noodles because I was trying to make this as healthy as possible. When noodles are done serve with crackers. Enjoy!
