Homemade chicken noodles are a tradition in my family. I’ve been helping my mom make them and eating them since I can remember.
We typically have them on Christmas Eve but with the colder weather I figured it was time to make them again.
What I love about this recipe is that I always have the ingredients on hand at home.
I used the crockpot this time but sometimes I just make them stove top.
What you need:
- 4 eggs
- 2 tablespoons water
- 3 cups flour
- 3 cubes chicken boullion
- 2 tsp salt
- 3 chicken breast
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
- Cook chicken in water with 3 boullion cubes, shred after it has cooled down.
- Combine eggs, water, salt, oil in a bowl.
- Slowly add flour to bowl as you mix the ingredients. You may not end up using all the flour.
- Roll into a ball and let sit for at least 1 hour or over night. This helps ensure the noodles do not fall apart when you drop them in.
- When you are ready to make the noodles, bring a large pot of water to boil.
- Lay your dough on a flat surface and flatten with a rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. Cut small lines across the dough. Remember your noodles will GROW.( I like to make them larger so they are more like a dumpling but its all up to your preference)
- Drop the noodles into your pot of boiling water. The water HAS to be hot or your noodles will become mush.
- From here its really up to you as to how you want to eat the dish or how much time you have. Sometimes I add the chicken, salt and pepper directly to the pot and let it simmer for 30 – 45 min. OR for more flavor, after the noodles have cooked for 10-15 min, I transfer it to a crockpot, mix in chicken, salt and pepper and let it cook overnight (5-6 hours on low).
Its hard to go wrong here or make these taste bad. My fiancé even made this batch on his own with (almost) no supervision.
