Chicken Noodle Soup
Makes: 6 Servings
Total Cost: $$$$

This home-style chicken noodle soup makes a wonderful side dish. It tastes even better the next day if you have any leftovers.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken breasts, thawed, skin and bone removed from each piece
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Noodles
  • 4 tablespoons egg mix (or 2 eggs)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. Cut up chicken breasts and place in a large pot with enough water to cover. Add salt and pepper.
  2. Bring chicken and water to a boil. Reduce to medium heat and continue to cook for about 20 minutes.
  3. Set aside 1/4 cup (about 1 ladle full) of the broth in a large bowl to cool down.
  4. To make the noodles, combine egg mix and flour in a medium-size bowl. While mixing the egg and flour, slowly add the 1/4 cup cooled broth until a dough is formed.
  5. Roll the dough on a clean, dry, floured surface. Add more flour as needed to keep it from sticking.
  6. Cut dough into 1/2 inch wide strips that are about 6 inches long.
  7. Gently put the strips into the pot with the chicken. Stir every 5 minutes.
  8. Cook until done (about 15-20 minutes over medium heat).
  9. Be careful! Pot may boil over if lid is fully closed.

Notes

Tip for cooking chicken: The recommended sage minimum internal temperature for chicken is 165 degrees F, as measured with a food thermometer.
