Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
I was sick a few weeks ago and my awesome next door neighbors Darin and Donelle brought me some delicious Chicken Noodle Soup...with homemade noodles! Nothing makes you feel better faster than warming up with something this tasty in your belly! It was so good I got the recipe and made it for my kids the next week. We had so much fun dusting off our noodle press and making noodles from scratch.
6 T. cream or milk
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 c. flour
8 c. chicken broth
3 cans sliced carrots (I just bought 1 bag of pre sliced carrots)
4 stalks celery, sliced
onion, finely chopped
rotisserie chicken from Sam's Club or Costco, shredded (or 2-3 chicken breasts cooked in chicken broth and shredded).
salt and pepper, to taste
Mix eggs, milk, salt and flour until well combined. Roll out thin (approx. 1/8 inch thick). Use a pizza or noodle cutter and slice (approx. 1/2 inch in width). We ran the dough through our noodle press to get uniform noodle slices. Cook in boiling chicken broth in 3 separate batches for about 20 minutes.
Heat a sauté pan, adding 1 T. butter to sauté carrots, onion, and celery. Add shredded chicken and veggies to chicken broth and noodles. Add salt and pepper to taste and extra chicken broth if needed and let simmer until ready to eat.
