- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme, divided
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 cups cold water, divided
- 3 tablespoons cold water, divided
- 1 lb skinless chicken thigh
- 5 cups chicken broth
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 medium carrot, sliced
- 3⁄4 cup frozen peas, thawed
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix flour, 1/4 teaspoon thyme and salt in bowl. Beat egg yolk with 3 tablespoons water in another small bowl; add to flour mixture. Stir until well blended. Shape into ball. Place dough on lightly floured surface; flatten. Knead about 5 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic, adding more flour as necessary. Wrap dough in plastic wrap; let stand 15 minutes.
- Roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness on lightly floured surface with rolling pin. Let rolled out dough stand about 30 minutes to dry. Cut into 1/4-inch wide strips; cut strips 2 inches long.
- Place chicken thighs and remaining water in saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cover and simmer 5 minutes. Drain and rinse chicken; let cool slightly. Remove chicken meat from bones; discard bones. Cut chicken into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch pieces.
- Mix chicken broth, onion, carrot and remaining thyme in saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add noodles. Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered, 8 minutes or until noodles are done. Stir in chicken pieces and peas. Bring soup to a boil and serve.
