What’s for Dinner: Chicken & Noodles



French Fry Friday got moved to Thursday this week. We all went out to McDonald’s.


Chicken & Noodles



I usually serve Chicken & Noodles over Mashed Potatoes, but we were out of potatoes and I didn’t make it to the grocery store before dinner as I had planned. It wasn’t bad with biscuits. I make my own noodles. It’s not hard and worth the extra time.

Home Made Noodle Recipe (My Mom’s)

3 egg yolks

1 whole egg

3 TBS of water (May need more. Add enough to make dough come together.)

1 Tsp of salt

2 Cups of water

Beat egg yolks and whole egg with fork. Add water, salt and flour. (Mixing is easier if you have an electric mixer with a dough hook.) Roll dough out thin. (I like to roll it out on floured pastry cloths. You can also use paper towel. It doesn’t stick and you can move it to another location after rolling if you need to.) Cut noodles into thin strips. You can let the noodles dry and store them for a few days in a plastic bag, or boil the noodles wet immediately. Wet noodles can also be frozen for later use.

Chicken & Noodle Recipe

3 Cups Chicken Broth

4 Cups Water

2 lbs. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast

1 Recipe Homemade Noodles

Salt & Pepper

Bring Water and Broth to Boil, add Chicken. Boil until chicken is cooked through. 15 minutes for thawed, 30 minutes for frozen. Remove chicken and cut into small chunks. Add back into pot. Add noodles. Bring back to boil, then simmer 45 to 60 minutes, until noodles thicken the broth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
