This is a recipe my grandmother used. She lived on a chicken farm, so it is as basic and simple as it can get. Usually all we have to accompany this recipe is mashed potatoes. It’s really nice on cold days and extremely cheap to make.

Directions

  1. Remove any giblets, rinse the chicken with cold water, and place it into a large saucepan of water. Add 1 teaspoon salt, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a medium low, and simmer about 1 hour, skimming foam from the broth, until the chicken meat is tender.
  2. Mix the flour with a dash of salt in a bowl. With your fingers, make a depression in the top of the flour and drop in the eggs. Add the oil, and stir the eggs into the flour to make a stiff dough. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic, and let it rest, covered, for about 10 minutes.
  3. Cut the dough in half, and roll each piece out, on a well-floured surface, into a rectangle shape until it's about 1/8 of an inch thick. Sprinkle the dough sheet with flour, and roll it up into a loose cylinder. With a sharp knife, cut 1/2 inch wide noodles from the roll. Unroll the noodles, and sprinkle with flour to prevent them from sticking together.
  4. Remove the chicken from the broth and let cool about 10 to 15 minutes, until it's cool enough to handle. Remove the skin and strip all of the meat from the bones, and return the chicken meat to the broth. Bring the broth back to a boil, drop in the fresh noodles, and let simmer over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, until the noodles are tender, slightly puffed and lighter in color.

You got it Girl! I'm 73 years old and this is my mother's recipe to a "T"! All of you new cooks out there---take this one to heart, it's the real deal. It's a must for "purist" cooks who enjoy REAL homemade food!

With really old-time recipes comes the good and the bad. Homemade noodles are very very good. The bad part is, these cooks didn't know...or didn't have...the things that make a dish like this excellent. I would never make this without adding onion, celery, black pepper, and thyme...and usually carrots too. These things make the broth taste like a million bucks. So if you're putting the considerable time into making this, it's definitely worth a few more minutes to chop some veggies...and it's better for you. Oh, and for those watching their fat intake, just skim any fat off the top with a big spoon, and discard it.

Just like Chicken and Noodles should be! Easy recipe and absolutely delicious, I think some people are expecting this to be a soup recipe but this is something completely different. I always serve this over mashed potatoes and always get rave reviews. This recipe is the same one my great-grandma used and is soo comforting. Also, DO NOT put this in a crockpot when first making as the broth needs to be hot enough for the noodles to form, if not they will just turn gummy. Great recipe Clara! <3
