This recipe is an adaptation of Stacky5's Bob Evan's Chicken and Noodles Copycat recipe. I have been making for a couple of years, but always with modifications. I am posting my revised version. Simply comfort food!

Totally hit the spot when snowed in during a blizzard. We used the full amount of butter and it was just decadent and comforting. Best comfort dish we've had in a while. We used rotisserie chicken meat to save time - great use of leftover chicken.

Total comfort food at it's best!!! I used the lesser amount of butter, as I used my own broth, which was made from turkey broth and turkey drippings. I also used left-over turkey in place of the chicken and regular egg noodles. My two kids just loved this meal!!! Thanks for sharing!!! Made for PRMR.
