I've been making homemade noodles similar to this recipe for years and we love them! Total comfort food! I use whole eggs and cut my noodles thicker as a personal choice. After cutting the noodles (if you don't have a noodle cutter a pizza cutter works great!)I lay them out to dry before cooking and they take about 20 minutes to cook. A little corn starch and water added to the broth/noodles after cooking thickens the juice as well. Delicious over mashed potatoes!
I had to laugh when I saw this recipe! This is the same recipe my husband's X- wife says is a family secret. HA! HA! She never could make it like HER Grandma could but, now I can. My husband always loved HER Grandma. He also loved this dish when Grandma made it, not when X-wife did. Now I can make it for him, and he can enjoy it again! Thank you so much for helping me to have one more step above his X-wife, not that there needs to be...HA!HA!
I'm not sure how to administer the stars here as I only had a problem with one aspect of the recipe - but it was a major issue. Everything turned out great, but it was WAY too salty. Needless to say, no one could finish eating it and it got dumped. This recipe calls for a total of 2 tablespoons of salt - 1 with the boiling of the chicken and 1 with the making of the noodles. Decrease the amount of salt to "to taste" and this recipe is a winner.
Just like my Mom and Grandmother used to make. We use a whole chicken and toss in a whole peeled yellow onion and a carrot or two to flavor the broth. It's good old fashioned German comfort food. Try it you'll love it.
The firt time I tried these noodles my family loved them. They taste great and was very easy to make. My family is already requesting them for Thanksgiving dinner.
My husband's grandma used to always make Chicken and noodles and he kept asking me to try. This recipe was a perfect match and we both loved it. Thanks for posting it
