Homemade Chicken and Noodles…
This is a comfort food from my childhood on the golf course, and something I highly recommend if you’ve never come across it in your life. It’s beautiful, simple homemade Chicken and Noodles—a thick, hearty dish not to be confused with a thinner, brothier chicken noodle soup. It’s so perfectly yummy and soul-pleasing.
While you could certainly go the turbo homemade route and make your own egg noodles (recipe below), I”ll show you a quick and easy alternative that I think is just as good.
You won’t believe how delicious such a simple dish can be.
- 1 whole Cut Up Fryer Chicken
- 2 whole Carrots, Diced
- 2 stalks Celery, Diced
- 1/2 whole Medium Onion, Diced (optional)
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon White Pepper (more To Taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Thyme
- 2 teaspoons Parsley Flakes
- 16 ounces, weight Frozen “homemade” Egg Noodles
- 3 Tablespoons All-purpose Flour
Cover chicken in 4 quarts water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Remove chicken from pot with a slotted spoon. With two forks, remove as much meat from the bones as you can, slightly shredding meat in the process. Return bones to broth and simmer on low, covered, for 45 minutes.
Remove bones from broth with a slotted spoon, making sure to get any small bones that might have detached.
Add the carrots and celery (and onions, if using) to the pot, followed by the herbs and spices. Stir to combine and simmer for ten minutes to meld flavors.
Increase heat and add frozen egg noodles and chicken. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes.
Mix flour and a little water. Stir until smooth. Pour into soup, stir to combine, and simmer for another 5 minutes, or until broth thickens a bit. Test and adjust seasonings as needed.
