Asian Chicken Noodle Soup: Slow Cooker

I found this Asian Chicken Noodle soup recipe in a mailer from my local grocer and I thought that is looked really good. I turned it into a slow cooker recipe since that just makes my day easier when I have a long to-do list. It's inexpensive, easy-to-make, and has all the comforting flavors of traditional chicken noodle soup with an Asian twist. This is a good way to shake things up from the routine.  We served ours with grilled cheese sandwiches and it was a perfect meal for a frosty fall day.
