Grandma's Easy Chicken and Noodles

Kathie Carr


Grandma made two versions of this dish. For special occasions there were home made noodles and broth that cooked all day.

This recipe, however, was the one she made when she was in a hurry or just making a regular meal. Nothing special, she said. But either version was so good!!!!
