I am going to share with you a recipe my family loves when there is leftover chicken or turkey. It’s a hearty meal and sometimes when I make it – you need a fork and not a spoon as the noodles sometimes soak up all the liquid. I’ve made it several ways and will give you many variations to this recipe to help speed up time or you can take a longer route.
This recipe is all about the noodles and not the soup itself.
And again I’m not a food photographer so I am sorry if it looks appealing . I cook for family and not for the camera.Print
Home made Egg Noodle Soup – great with leftover chicken or turkey.
- The Egg Noodles:
- 2 chicken cubes – broken up or 3 Tbsp of Chicken oxo
- 2 & 1/2 Cups of White Flour
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 2 Eggs Beaten
- 1 Tablespoon of butter
- The Soup
- 3 Cooked Chicken Breasts or whatever you have leftovers as far as turkey or chicken goes
- Veggies ( Dehydrated, fresh, frozen) ( Ideas potatoes, carrots, peas, celery, onion)
- 3 Chicken Campbell’s Ready to Use Soup Containers ( or use Chicken Broth from previous chicken)
- Garlic Salt
- Start your Broth on high heat, and add your veggies ( if using fresh – put on high ) and wait for them to be fully cooked) If using frozen or dehydrated simply add them using medium heat.
- While your Soup is on the stove waiting for veggies to cook
- In a small bowl – beat your 2 eggs and set to side
- In a Bowl Add your Flour, oxo, and a pinch of salt and stir with wooden spoon. Then cut in your butter into flour, add your milk and beaten eggs. Stir until you get a sticky ball. Let Rest for 10 minutes.
- Toss your chicken into soup mixture and give it a stir.
- Now add a bit flour to the countertop (1/4 of a cup?) and using a rolling pin roll out your dough to as thin as you can. ( It doesn’t have to be super thin – and truly doesn’t matter)
- Now if you have a pizza cutter – this works awesome to cut up the noodles. I make long lines about 1/2 inch wide or less – again not fancy. My family likes them short and don’t like them like spaghetti long – so I cut them to about 4 inches long .
- Once your veggies are cooked – Toss in your noodles – Fresh noodles only take about 5 -10 minutes to cook. Turn your heat up a bit if necessary for this time especially if you had the pot turned down below medium heat.
- After Noodles are cooked. Turn down the stove to low or put on warmer until ready to serve.
