Chicken and Noodles

Cathy Clark


This is one of my most favorite comfort foods and always brings back lots of memories. I have a couple of different recipes I use, but this is the one I use most often and have for years. It does make a lot, so if way too many noodles for your family, just freeze them up after you have let them dry, but before you cook them and use them later. This recipe says to bake a fryer chicken, but you can always eliminate this step if you don't want to bother and just use a deli chicken and the chicken broth instead, but a baked chicken does add some great flavor.

We grew up eating chicken and noodles over mashed potatoes, but this also makes a good chicken and noodle soup with vegetables added. I also make noodles and add beef broth and leftover beef roast, leftover gravy from roast for beef and noodles. Sorry I don't have a picture right now, but if I make them soon, will add the picture. Enjoy!

egg yolks
1 Tbsp
white vinegar
fryer chicken
32 oz
chicken broth
1 tsp
5 Tbsp
water or milk
3 c
all purpose flour
1 Tbsp
chicken bouillon

Directions Step-By-Step

For noodles, mix egg yolks, salt, vinegar and water or milk together. In a very large bowl, put sifted flour and make a well in center. Start mixing from center of bowl, gradually pulling in flour until you have it all incorporated. Knead the dough for a few minutes. Make 3 rounds and then cover with plastic wrap for 15-30 minutes and let rest. Dust your surface well with flour before attempting to roll out the dough. Roll each round out very thin and dust with flour. Roll up jelly-roll style and then cut noodles thin or thick whichever your preference. Spread the noodles out and let dry for at least an hour, but longer if you have time.

Bake fryer chicken in oven at 350 degrees until chicken comes off bone. Take chicken out of broth. Use chicken broth from chicken and also canned broth and bouillon. Bring broth to a boil and then add noodles. Stir well and then reduce to a simmer and cook until tender. Depending on the thickness of your noodles, time will be 10-20 minutes. Then add amount of chicken back in with noodles you desire.
