Old Fashioned Chicken and Noodles
Old Fashioned Chicken and Noodles
 I call them Sunday noodles, you know the ones that you stir up, roll out and let dry while you are poaching the chicken. This dish is very thrifty. Early in the day load your crockpot with bone broth, chicken parts (I used boneless skinless thighs because they were in the freezer), 2 large carrots, 2 stalks of celery and a small amount of onion. Add some white wine, garlic salt, and your favorite poultry seasonings.

Walk away and enjoy your day. You can certainly add some noodles from your pantry and still have a nice meal, or you can stir up these homemade noodles and call the family to supper.

Sunday noodles (but good any day of the week)
adapted from:  Donnie @ New Blessing Everyday

1 c flour, I used 1/2 all-purpose and 1/2 Spelt*
dash of salt
2 eggs
1 t water - more or less
additional flour for kneading and rolling 

Add flour(s), eggs and salt to the processor bowl, process until beginning to come together. Stop and scrape down sides, add water, process until mixture forms a ball.

Scrape out onto a heavily floured surface (I prefer using a jelly roll pan, to contain the mess). Coat all surfaces of the dough ball in flour, knead 8 - 10 times.

Roll out until approximately 1/8 inch thick. Let dry 1 hour, cut into noodles, let dry until ready to cook them in the broth, or if your stewed chicken has produced less broth than desired, par-boil before adding to the broth to finish cooking.

These dried for most of the day, noodles are easy like that. They cook up tender, no matter how dry they start out. 

 Drain well before adding to your broth, to finish the cooking process. 

Let chicken mixture cool, remove excess fat. Transfer to a large pan, using two forks, break up the chicken into chunks, and add some peas if desired. Bring mixture to a boil, add noodles (par-boiled if need be) and simmer until noodles are done/tender. Garnish with some fresh parsley if desired, and call the family to supper.

Supper time, come and enjoy.
* part whole grain makes for a very chewy noodle if you prefer a softer noodle use (only) all-purpose flour.
