FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What are dry wide noodles?

They are egg noodles but instead of curly they are straight. Sometimes they might be called “Amish Noodles” or “Homestyle Noodles”. They are usually found near the other egg noodles at your grocery store. If you can’t find them, just go with regular egg noodles.

What kind of chicken should I use?

If you want to be quick, then you can use a rotisserie chicken. Just pull off the meat and shred it or cut it up into chunks. Otherwise you can bake, boil or grill some chicken breasts and shred them.

How do you thicken chicken and noodles?

You can do it a couple of ways. For this recipe we whisk together about 1 cup of milk with 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour in a pan over medium heat. Do this for 3-4 minutes then add this mixture to your chicken and noodles then turn the heat up on the chicken and noodles and it will begin to thicken. Or, you can whisk together about 3 tablespoons of water with 3 tablespoons of cornstarch until smooth. Add this to your chicken and noodles and turn up the heat to thicken.

Should I cook noodles separate for chicken and noodles?

No. It is not necessary. However, if you want your chicken and noodles to be more “soupy” rather than thick, then you could cook them separately then add them to the pot.

Is chicken and noodles healthy?

Well that depends on what you define as “healthy”. That means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. I can tell you that it is a well-rounded meal of carbohydrates, protein and fresh vegetables.

How do I store leftover chicken and noodles?

Chicken and noodles will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. You can also freeze it. Let the chicken and noodles cool and place in a freezer container. This will keep for up to 3 months. To thaw, remove to the refrigerator overnight and reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.

Homemade Chicken and Noodles

It’ll make your soul smile.

This is a comfort food from my childhood on the golf course, and something I highly recommend if you’ve never come across it in your life. It’s beautiful, simple homemade Chicken and Noodles—a thick, hearty dish not to be confused with a thinner, brothier chicken noodle soup. It’s so perfectly yummy and soul-pleasing.

While you could certainly go the turbo homemade route and make your own egg noodles, I’ll show you a quick and easy alternative that I think is just as good. You won’t believe how delicious such a simple soup recipe can be.

Now this recipe uses bone-in, skinless chicken breasts which means it will take a little longer than usual for the chicken to cook through.

But don’t worry, it yields the most flavorful stock and the most tender chicken bites (so it’s absolutely worth the extra time), doctored up with fresh dill and freshly squeezed lemon juice for a little bit of jazz. SO SO GOOD.
