Egg Noodles and Gravy- Homemade

Pat Duran


This is part make ahead dish: using the baked chicken from the day before.Using all that is left at least 1 cupful- more or less.
This is the smoothest gravy with a hint of sweet. The noodles and gravy together make a great supper meal.
This gravy tastes great over French fries and hot buttered biscuits, or rice.
This was my grandma's recipe and she taught it to my mom and mom taught it to me.
I hope you like this as much as we do.
