This is my beloved Grandmother's recipe. I have made noodles from scratch mixing, rolling, and cutting by hand. Today I use a dough mixer and pasta cutter to save time.

Directions

  1. Bring chicken stock to a boil; cook chicken breasts at a boil until no longer pink in the center, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove chicken, cool, and cut meat from bone; keep chicken stock at a low simmer.
  2. Mix flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt together using the dough hook attachment in the bowl of a stand mixer on Low; add eggs and water, 1 tablespoon at time, until dough holds together.
  3. Split dough in half. Roll 1 dough half on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut dough into noodles 2 to 3-inches long x 1/4-inch wide using a sharp knife dipped in flour or a fettuccine pasta cutter. Repeat with other dough half.
  4. Return chicken to the simmering stock; add noodles. Season stock with black pepper and 1 pinch salt. Cook soup until noodles are cooked through, 15 to 25 minutes.

Won first prize at a soup cook off with this one year. My kids love it took me awhile to come close to "gramma's" soup even with her recipe :)

Five stars for the noodles alone. Super simple and delicious. I had great results cutting the dough with my pizza cutter. I liked that the noodles weren't completely uniform, were clearly homemade and were more rustic. They puff up a lot when cooked, so I would err on the side of cutting them pretty thin vs the recommended size or bigger. I also thought the noodles were even way better the next day after they sat overnight in the broth. Texture was incredible. Pillowy but still a bit firm. These are too simple for excuses.
