Chicken-n-Noods

**Disclaimer** This recipe feeds a ton of people. I usually invite my friends over to indulge in a bowl or two and when we have family functions it serrves about 16 people or more. I enjoy these for leftovers or you can freeze them in a muffin tin and eat for months. My Grandmothers both make chicken-n-noods around Thanksgiving and Christmas once it gets cold. I love this and prefer it to regular Chicken noodle soup. The recipe is simple but can easily go left if you over cook the noodles. Here is the recipe.


Ingredients:
1 pkg Wide Egg noodles (dumplings)
1 can of cream of chicken soup (Healthy choice)
2 tbs butter
3 chicken breast
2 cups water
Salt & Pepper
1/2 c Milk
1 box of chicken broth




Ingredients:
1. Boil your noodles in the chicken broth until they swell and soften. (adding pepper as you go). Add the 2 cups of water to the Chicken broth or it will not last to cook your noodles.
2. Boil chicken and then shred in a skillet. After noodles are cooked add chicken to pot with noodles.
3. Add butter and milk then close lid and let excess water simmer down some for about 5 minutes.
4. Add cream of chicken soup last then cover pot for another 10-15 minutes.
5. Let the noodles stand to thicken up and then enjoy!

Made this last night & loved it!! Our family has been sick so I was trying to find a good chicken noodle recipe for right now & one that would hopefully become our go-to "feel better" meal. This is it! BUT we decided that it's too good to have only when we're sick! We're putting this in the regular dinner rotation!

Your Grandmas know their stuff!!

By the way, I did cook the noodles too long (even though you warned against it) & will know better next time - it was still YUMMY!!

I'm confused. The ingredients say 2 cups water, but nowhere in the directions does it say where to add them...

I thought the same thing but it looks like thats the water to boil the chicken in

Nope I was wrong. U have to add it to the chicken broth or there isnt enough liquid to boil the noodles

What size is the box of broth you used, how many ounces?
