*You can use a combination of water and canned or homemade broth. Using all broth will increase the “chicken-y” flavor. 

**Canned chopped pimentos are simply preserved red bell peppers, not spicy. They add nice color and additional flavor but can be omitted if you don’t have any on hand.  They come in various size jars, including a 2-ounce size, or if you buy a larger jar, any extra will hold in the refrigerator several weeks.

So I am going to go out on a limb here and say that perhaps the addition of the pimentos are the secret ingredient? They pack so much flavor in a small little package. Anybody else think this is a good dish to pass for a holiday party? So many times there are two, three, or four versions of the green bean casserole. How about bringing something like this instead? Man, I would eat half of it myself!

I love everything about chicken noodle soup, especially when Winter is in the air. I never really thought about making it in a crock pot though. Is there a special type of noodle you would have to use in order to prevent them from getting mushy or do you think any egg noodle would suffice? I love that you added pimentos to the recipe...I've never had them in my chicken noodle but I bet it makes all the difference.
