Homemade Chicken and Noodles

Being sick sucks.  If you grew up in my house, you not only were told chicken soup was good for you, but also how it increased nasal mucous velocity.  That little snippet of info alone probably explains a lot.  A lot.

Anyway, I'm sure PW wasn't clocking her snot as she made this, but I was counting how many times the bowl got refilled, and that was enough for me.

You're a scientist, try it yourself.

Homemade Chicken and noodles
Adapted from Pioneer woman 

2 cups shredded chicken
64 ounces chicken stock
2 whole Carrots, Diced
2 stalks Celery, Diced (unless your husband hates celery)
1/2 whole Medium Onion, Diced
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Turmeric
1/4 teaspoon White Pepper (more to taste)
1/4 teaspoon Ground Thyme
2 tablespooms fresh
Homemade Pasta (see end)
3 Tablespoons All-purpose Flour


Place carrots and onions(and celery, if using) to the pot, followed by the herbs and spices. Stir to combine and simmer for ten minutes to meld flavors.  Add 64 ounces of chicken stock from a box.  You heard me,  FROM A BOX.

Increase heat and add pasta and chicken. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes.

Mix flour and a little water. Stir until smooth. Pour into soup, stir to combine, and simmer for another 5 minutes, or until broth thickens a bit. Test and adjust seasonings as needed.

Homemade Pasta

Combine 2 eggs with 1 cup all purpose flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Knead with paddle attachment of mixer for about 8 minutes.  Place into pasta maker or roll out thin, flour, and roll then slice thinly as per PW's link above.
