Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup – Yum!

A few weeks ago we made homemade Chicken Noodle Soup for dinner and it was delicious. I’ve been wanting to make this for a long time but the noodles intimidated me. My mom and grandma have made homemade noodles for as long as I can remember. I’m not a very good cook, so I thought there was no way I could make them, but it was super easy!

Here is the recipe for my Grandma’s Egg Noodles, with my revisions:

Ingredients

2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk

Directions

  1. Mix eggs, milk, and salt together.
  2. Add flour slowly until the dough becomes heavy.
  3. Roll out the dough until it’s flat and let it sit for 2 to 3 hours to dry out.
  4. Roll up the dough into a tube-like shape. Starting at one end, make 1/8-inch-thick slices to create noodles.
  5. Add to chicken broth (recipe below) or water and boil for 20 to 30 minutes.

We looked through several broth recipes online and ended up taking bits and pieces from a couple of them. James made this part of the dish and here is how he did it:

Ingredients
 

1/6 cup chopped onion
1/6 cup chopped green onion
1/3 cup chopped celery
2 cans chicken broth
1 can vegetable broth
8 ounces chopped, cooked chicken breast
2/3 cup sliced carrots
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
Homemade noodles
Salt and Pepper to taste

 

Directions

  1.  Add all ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil. 
  2. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the noodles are done all the way through.

 

That’s it!  Easy-peasy. It made enough to feed us both for dinner and then I had the leftovers for lunch the next day.

Enjoy! 🙂
