Chicken & Noodles

Please give a warm welcome to one of our newest contributors: Alli! Alli runs a blog called Longbourn Farm where she shares anything from awesome homemade recipes to animal husbandry techniques and renovating their property! Today, she shares with us a delicious homemade recipe for Chicken & Noodles… 

My first experience with Chicken & Noodles was at my brother and sister-in-laws house. I had never heard of the recipe until she made it for me. She likes to serve hers over a little bit of mashed potatoes and it is oh-so-good!

Chicken & Noodles

Just in case you didn’t know, Chicken & Noodles is not the same as chicken noodle soup. It is much thicker and has more noodles. It’s just divine. Over the last little while I have discovered a whole bunch of awesome chicken & noodles recipes and finally come up with my own.

Chicken & Noodles
Write a review
  1. • 1 teaspoon oil
  2. • 3-4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  3. • 2 medium carrots, diced
  4. • 2 celery stalks, diced
  5. • 1 large onion, diced
  6. • 1/4 cup flour
  7. • Salt and pepper, to taste (don’t be shy – season it up!)
  8. • 2 cups chicken broth
  9. • 1/2 cup milk
  10. • 1 chicken bullion cube
  11. • Pinch of cloves
  12. • Pinch of turmeric
  13. • 2-3 thyme sprigs
  14. • 1-2 sage leaves
  15. • 1 recipe homemade noodles {follows}
  1. Heat the oil in a medium dutch oven over high heat. Brown the chicken thighs on both sides and then remove from the pot. Remove all but about 2 tablespoons chicken fat and add the diced veggies. Cook until translucent. Add the salt, pepper, and flour. Cook flour for 2-3 minutes stirring constantly. Add chicken broth, milk, bullion, cloves, and turmeric. Stir until combined and smooth. Take the skin off of the chicken thighs and nestle them back in the liquid and lay the herbs on top. You can tie the herbs together with kitchen twine if you have it to make them easier to remove later. Cook until the chicken is done, 45-60 minutes.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, make your noodles. Combine all the ingredients below and roll out to desired thickness. I actually prefer to just press mine out with my hands. I like the dough to be about 1/8 inch thick. Then cut the noodles. Using a pizza cutter works great. Allow them to dry until it's time to add them to the soup.
  3. • 1 egg
  4. • 2 tablespoons water
  5. • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  7. • About 1 cup flour, enough to make a soft dough.
  8. Remove herb bundle and chicken, shred the chicken and return to pot. Add noodles. Simmer until the noodles are cooked, about 6-10 minutes {taste test to confirm doneness}. Chicken & Noodles should be thick, not soupy so add more flour if you need too. Sprinkle with fresh or dried parsley to finish.

About Alli Kelley

I live on 5 rundown (but lovely!) acres that my husband and I are working hard to rehab and bring back to life. We have a wide array of animals that varies depending on the season and year. Our flock of chickens is pretty constant and our two dogs, of course, will always be there. We are all about homegrown and handmade; I make everything I can think to make. We love homemade meals, homegrown food, and believe that life is what you make it – happiness is also handmade. I studied animal science for my bachelors degree and animal nutrition for my master’s degree so I am very passionate about all things animal and know a good bit about feeds and pasture management as well. I love it all! My website, Longbourn Farm, is the best place to get all the right information you need to make the most of your small acreage farm. It provides realistic, scientific, innovative content to help you make your property and animals productive, healthy, and cost efficient!
