Recipes to try
Chicken Noodle Soup
Can I add noodles?
Yes, this chicken soup will work perfectly with some noodles. We recommend pre-cooking the noodles or cooking them separately in Suvie and adding them to the soup just before serving.
Can I use chicken thighs instead?
Of course, you can use any type of chicken pieces you like! If you’re using a regular slow cooker you can even try this recipe with a whole chicken, although this isn’t possible using Suvie.
