Amish Noodles

"I found this recipe on another website (don't remember which one). They are really easy and very good. Much better than a buttered noodle, although there is a lot of sodium. I use low sodium chicken broth."

Questions & Replies

  1. Is this the kind of noodles that are served over mashed potatoes?
  2. Add the noodles uncooked, correct?
  3. Stupid you dissolve the bouillon cube in water before adding it?


  1. This is practically effortless! By using this method, the noodles take on a deep, rich flavor from the chicken broth. I used extra wide egg noodles and the time cooking time was right on for me. You do have to remember to just give it a stir every 7 - 8 minutes or so. Thanx for a new easy side dish!
  2. The longer these sat the better they were. I followed the recipe exactly as written and we enjoyed them. I had about half a pan leftover so put them in a ziploc in the fridge, the next day they tasted even better. Easy different way to enjoy egg noodles.
  3. This is such a wonderful recipe. Turns out delicious every time and is a great way to use leftovers. I like to add shredded rotisserie chicken and a bay leaf when making the chicken version. I use this same recipe with leftover roast beef (chuck roast) and swap out chicken broth/bouillon cube for beef stock and pan drippings. Fast, easy, one-pan meal.
  4. I found this recipe on Pinterest, and oh my gosh, it is good! I really love how you can have this easy, tasty side dish with such little attention. I followed the directions exactly, except my wide egg noodles came in a bag of 16oz., so I added 1/2 cup of water (which I'm not sure it needed, but it all soaked up, so I think it was fine). The time was perfect for me as well. Thank you so much for posting this, I will use it again and again!
  5. Nice noodle side. Very easy and tasty. Followed to a T but my noodles were not done at the end of the time period. There was still liquid at the bottom of the pan so I turned it back on and cooked for another 15 minutes. That did the trick. Thanks for a great easy and tasty recipe! Loved the way the noodles cook with the heat off and minimal effort or attention from the chef. That is a plus especially when you have guests! Thanks JiliBean!
