Bob Evans Chicken & Noodles (Copycat)

"This is a WONDERFUL recipe that I have looked for over 7 years now! I finally got the recipe from Chef Betsy502, who has someone in her family that worked at Bob Evans, and then Impera Magna re-calculated all of the ingredients to make it a home-cooked meal for my family! YAY for the Chefs here on Zaar! This is so good! Such comfort food, I simply can't explain! ENJOY! (And thank you SO MUCH, Betsy502 and Impera Magna for helping me achieve my DREAM RECIPE!) :)"

    We love the Bob Evans recipe called Chicken & Noodles Dinner, so I wanted to make it at home. Found this recipe and have modified it over time to fit my large table requirements (5 people eats like 10!). To make it slightly thicker than just broth, I do the roux - cook the onions & celery in butter, then add the flour. I will also use chicken stock instead of all water. In addition, I will add a can of chicken & herb condensed soup to the recipe so it will sit a little thicker on the mashed potatoes and buttermilk bisquit. I have also added fresh parsley, sage and marjoram near the end of cooking. For Thanksgiving leftovers, I cooked the veggies and broth with the biggest turkey bones for an hour before taking them out and adding the dark meat leftover turkey. YUM!

    This one was a hit. The Reames noodles definitely make the difference. I used one cup less water and first made a roux with 4T of Wondra flour to thicken it up a bit. Next time I will cut back to 7 cups of water 'cause it was still not as thick as I liked. Also cut back to 1/2C butter.

    This was definitely better the next day. I boiled a whole chicken and used the meat from it, instead of using chicken breasts. More work, but definitely added great flavor. Will definitely make again! :) Thanks for posting

    Sorry,but this is not what I call chicken and noodles. All the carrot,celery,onions just didn't seem to add any flavor (and I used chicken broth instead of water).<br/>I think just following the instructions on the Rheames noodle package makes a better dish. I think this is far too watery and has very little flavor. Maybe Bob Evans doesn't give out the correct ingredients, but I am sticking to my own "home recipe" from now on.

    This is absolutely delicious! I love the Bob Evan's chicken and noodles, and this is just as good as any I have ever had there. It's especially nice for me since there are no Bob Evan's restaurants in my area, and now I can get my chicken and noodles fix right here at home! Real comfort food; just perfect for chilly weather. It was easy to prepare, too. I followed the recipe exactly and wouldn"t change a thing. My husband loved it too, and he is not a big soup fan. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I used 32 oz chicken stock, and a whole chicken in crock pot, shredded the chicken from the bones and added to stock and veggies after cooking all day, i also added large tablespoon of smoked paprika to give it some pop! Waiting on the result!

Editor's Note: Sadly Stacky5 passed away on Monday, October 20, 2008. Hi! My name is Stacy, and I'm a single Mom who works full-time with 4 kids ranging from ages 9 to 21, a brand new granddaughter named Faith, and a cat named Pubert (we call him Pube) who is also my kid... That's his photo as my icon. Oh, and a new kitten that the kids named "KeeKee" but who I call Little Kitteh. I love them with all my heart! Even though I don't have my parents anymore, their presence is always felt and their love has resonated in my life, even after all this time. You'll find a lot of my posted recipes that refer to "Jolean" --- and that's my Mom. :) I sure do miss her... I love music, especially 70's music, cats, incense & lavalights, candles, and I love to play guitar. I've been called an old "hippie chick," and I don't mind that label in the least. I also love to try other people's recipes and find ones that remind me of my Mother, and those precious memories that I had growing up in a household with such a wonderfully comforting cook...I work full-time in a real estate office as an office administrator. I came to this site looking for recipes that were tried and true. I stayed at this site because I found people who were kind, loving, caring and shared the same interest that I do --- food and cooking. I've saved a lifetime of recipes and learned so much about cooking and ingredients that I actually feel proud of my cooking. I bet my Mom looks down on me with pride every time I cook a new recipe from RecipeZaar, and I bet my Dad cracks up every time he sees me photographing what I've cooked! My daughters have actually gotten into the act, too, and are quite versed in searching for recipes and answers here on Zaar. Makes me proud to be their Mom. RecipeZaar isn't just a "website." It's a lifestyle. And some of the friends I've made here are LIFELONG friends to me --- and in my estimation, those types of people are a rare thing to find in this world. :) P.S. Pube says, "Hello everybody!" ;) <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/purplechefhat.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/chef3.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/beartag_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/adopted_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=craftykookaburras.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/craftykookaburras.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/World%20Tour/ZWT2.gif"> <img src="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b112/kzbhansen/Banners/Animation3.gif"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b45/Stacky5LRC/banner002_200.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
