This is my late mother-in-laws recipe for noodles -- her favorite for flavor and because they don't spring back when you roll them. At every family gathering she'd make the best Chicken and Noodles, dropping her prepared noodles into homemade chicken broth along with shredded cooked chicken, then serving them over mashed potatoes. I've made them many times and everyone loves them. When making multiple batches, and lacking counter space, I hang the rounds on clean plastic hangers to dry.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and melted butter together with a fork. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt until dough becomes stiff. Knead on a lightly floured surface or in the bowl for a few minutes to blend completely. Divide the dough into thirds. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece into a sheet about 1/16 of an inch thick. Place each sheet onto a dry cloth and set aside for 30 to 45 minutes to partially dry.
  2. When the noodle sheets are somewhat dry, roll up one at a time into a loose spiral and cut into strips as wide as you want using a sharp knife. Spread out the noodles to dry for about 1 hour before cooking or storing in freezer containers. To use frozen noodles, thaw in the container before using.
  3. To cook the noodles, drop into rapidly boiling water or broth, and cook until tender, 7 to 10 minutes.

A wonderful noodle recipe! Adding the baking powder makes for a delicious buttery noodle. Made these with my young grandchildren who loved getting their hands on the dough. We did use a pasta machine to roll them out and made two sizes of noodles. One thin and one nice and thick. This dough is so easy to work with! They were dried on a clothes rack set up in the kitchen. They went into a a wonderful turkey broth using up the last of the Thanksgiving turkey. TRY THIS RECIPE! It will not disappoint! Made these with my young grandchildren who loved getting their hands on the dough. We used leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, with chicken broth, carrots,celery, and onions. We did use a pasta machine to roll the dough out and made two kinds of noodles. One thin, and one thick and plump. This dough is so easy to work with. Noodles were hung on a folding clothes rack to dry. What a wonderful filling meal they made.

I made these very easy noodles for the first time ever and they are great! I put them in homemade chicken noodle soup and my husband said it was the best soup he had ever tasted. These will be made every time I make chicken noodle soup for sure. Thanks for the recipe!
