Chicken and noodles

Chicken and noodles is that ultimate comfort food. The best part is that you can do it as simple or as complicated as you would like.

You will need a 4 to 5 quart pan with lid.


2 to 3 cups chopped cooked chicken, preferably dark meat
About 3 quarts chicken broth, homemade OR store bought
1 batch of homemade noodles OR 1 pound of dried store bought noodles.

If you are making your chicken and broth from scratch, add some chicken to your pot and cover with water. A good choice is the hindquarters. 2 or 3, depending on size.
Season the water heavily with salt, pepper, garlic powder and parsley.
Bring to a boil.
Cover and reduce the heat until the water is at a simmer and cook for a couple hours.
Remove the chicken from the broth.
Let cool. Bone, skin, and chop.
Set aside.
Heat the broth up to a rolling boil.
Slowly stir the noodles into the broth and let it boil for a few minutes for fresh noodles or follow package directions for store bought.
Stir every once in a while so the noodles don't clump
Add the chicken the the noodles and lower heat and let thicken, stirring occasionally.

This will serve 6-8.
