DIRECTIONS

  • In large stock pot, combine chicken, salt & water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover & simmer til chicken is fully cooked.
  • While chicken cooks, combine eggs & salt in mixing bowl (I use a stand mixer with dough hook attachment, but it can be mixed by hand with a fork) & beat eggs slightly. Gradually add flour & milk to eggs & continue mixing until the flour is incorporated & dough is no longer sticky to the touch. Slightly more or less flour may be necessary, depending on the size of your eggs.
  • When dough is ready, form into a ball & turn out onto a well floured surface. Knead by hand a few times, adding more flour if it gets sticky again. Pat into a round & then roll out into a large rectangle about 12x15 or so & 1/4 inch thick. Be sure to flip dough often, keeping it well floured so it doesn't stick.
  • Starting at a short end, use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into 1/4 inch wide (or smaller)strips. (To do the cutting with a sharp knife: flour the top of your rectangle, roll up jelly roll style & slice into 1/8 inch spirals.) When all strips are cut, unroll if needed & toss them with enough flour to keep them from sticking together. Spread noodles out in a single layer on your rolling surface & leave to dry a bit while you are finishing the chicken.
  • When chicken is cooked, remove to a cutting board, (discarding the water it was cooked in) & use two forks to shred it into bite-sized lengths.
  • Add the chicken broth to the stock pot & bring broth & water to a boil.
  • Add noodles & whatever flour is with them to the boiling pot.
  • Add the shredded chicken & stir gently. Reduce heat to low to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the cream of chicken soup & stir well. If this makes the mixture too thick, add enough of the optional water to make your desired consistency. we like it a bit stew-like, but still thin enough to look like gravy on mashed potatoes.
  • Simmer all for another 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until noodles are tender. Timing really depends on how thick your noodles are cut. We like them a little on the thick side. Serve over mashed potatoes.
