Remember when you were a child and on your birthday you got to pick what your Mom fixed for dinner? Well, in our house the answer for every single kid was easy, "Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup!" It is a family classic and my mother graciously agreed to let me share it with all of you. Thanks Mom!
I should note that what makes the recipe so great is that the noodles are homemade, but no, not with a fancy pasta maker all you Kitchen-Aid mixer snobs (I say this, my eyes red with jealously, as I am the ONLY GIRL IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE WHO DID NOT GET A KITCHEN AID MIXER FOR HER WEDDING. Never fear, I have faith that I will win one from Pioneer Women one of these days...) So here is the old school way to make homemade noodles, and it does not disappoint.
-6 tbs. milk
-1 1/2 tsp. salt
-3 cups all purpose flour
-1 big can of chicken broth
-1 regular sized can of cream of chicken soup
-3 or 4 chicken breasts
1. In a mixing bowl combine 1 beaton egg, 2 tbs. milk, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Stir in 1 cup of all purpose flour a little at a time until you have made a stiff dough. Set aside for ten minutes.
2. Repeat step 1 two more times so that you have three different sets of dough. Do not triple the receipe.
3. Roll dough and let stand for about 20 minutes. Cut into 1/4 inch thick slices. Let dry on rack for two hours.
4. Boil chicken for about 20 minutes in hot water. Remove and shred.
5. Place chicken and noodles in a large pot containing the large can of broth with a can of cream of chicken soup. Bring to a boil and cook for about 15-20 minutes.
YUM! Easy and homemade delight!
