Last week I shared my Grandma’s recipe for homemade egg noodles, so now it’s time to share her Chicken & Noodles! My grandma made this dish frequently when we went to visit, so I always think of her when I make chicken and noodles. I am so glad I can share her recipe with my own family!
As a side, Chicken & Noodles may not be much to look at, but it is comforting in every way! Enjoy!
*You can also start this recipe with a whole chicken. Simply add the chicken to a large stock pot along with an onion, carrot, couple ribs of celery, and salt to taste. Fill the pot with water and simmer for 1 ½ hours. Strain out the solids, reserving the chicken meat, and continue on with the recipe.
Chicken and Noodles
Recipe from Grandma Ginny
1 batch homemade egg noodles
8 cups chicken stock
1-2 cups hot water, if needed
2-3 cups cooked chicken
2 tbsp water + 2 tbsp flour, whisked together
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the chicken stock to a boil. Add the noodles and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. The pasta will absorb a lot of liquid, so add more hot chicken stock or hot water, if needed.
Once the noodles are fully cooked, stir in the cooked chicken and the water and flour mixture. Simmer for another 10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve with a crusty roll.
