    Some of the best comfort food I remember growing up is my Mom's Easy Chicken & Homemade Noodles.

    Gramma used to make these for my mom and her sisters when they were growing up.
    My favorite part of mom making this recipe is when the noodles were laying out on a tea towel to dry. My sister and I couldn't resist the slightly soft, floury, noodles laying about. We would always sneak through the kitchen and steal a noodle. Of course, these days we know better and I don't let my kids do that because of the raw egg in the dough, but it is one of my favorite memories surrounding this meal.

    These days I make chicken and noodles whenever someone is ill, when the weather turns cold, when I have leftover chicken or turkey, and even when I just have very little in the house to cook with. It's a great way to stretch a small amount of chicken.

    I sometimes add veggies to the broth, whatever I have on hand, and often I'll use homemade chicken stock or broth. When I make the broth homemade as well, I really feel like this comfort food is taken to another level.
    It doesn't take much effort to make your own broth and the extra nutrients and flavor you'll get out of it are definitely worth the time! There are some really excellent recipes posted on Food.com. These are a few I've tried and keep coming back to:

    Homemade Chicken Stock for Cooking


    The noodles can be rolled and cut thick or thin. I use a pizza cutter to slice them quickly. Personally, I like a little thicker, chewier noodle, but sometimes I'll cut them spaghetti thin because it makes a lot more for serving to a crowd or for sharing with a sick friend.

    I've also tried this variation of homemade egg noodles, posted by kindcook, and found that I liked the richness of using egg yolks instead of whole eggs.

    Regardless of the broth or noodles you use, the best way to serve this recipe is over a big mound of mashed potatoes! yummy.gif

    Omgosh, I know! Today is all the way up to 5°, but we are supposed to go into the negative single digits within the next week. I made DH put the winter comforter back on the bed last night cause I was so cold; even with my electric blanket on high and the house temp set at 76°. I'm dreading going out today, but I've got one more cup of coffee worth of creamer left, so it's definitely an emergency. icon_lol.gif

    I agree, they're the best. I rarely let them dry for the full 2 hours. It just depends on how soon everything else is ready to go. icon_wink.gif

    rotfl.gif Sometimes we do what we gotta do, right? I married mine and he didn't eat anything but tuna casserole, take-out pizza, and some nasty fake (I'm sure) meat called Steak-ums. Blech!

    So anyway, I have frozen my chicken & noodles before. I just make fresh mashed potatoes when I thaw and reheat it. It also lasts in the fridge for several days. I'll usually divide up leftovers into a couple serving sized containers with the leftover mashed potatoes, and then we just pop one in the microwave to reheat the meal.
