Homemade Chicken Noodles

Homemade Chicken Noodles

These homemade noodles happen to be one of my family’s favorite dinners, but I wasn’t sure if this recipe was ever going to make it onto my blog.  I knew it was going to be hard to make them look good in a photograph (partly because the food is all white), so I kept putting it off and putting it off.  After two years, I finally decided to give it a shot.  I’m not totally happy with the photo I got because you can’t see the chicken gravy very well.  And believe me, I understand that noodles on top of mashed potatoes sounds really weird.  So if Foodgawker doesn’t accept my photo this time, I’m going to be good with it.  You’re just going to have to trust me on this one.  I promise they taste really good.

This recipe was handed down to me from my mother-in-law, Char Jones, soon after I married her son.  Char grew up in Iowa, and I think this is probably a regional dish because both her mother and her mother-in-law made these homemade noodles with chicken.  Sometimes they would replace the chicken with beef or ham.  My relatives all lived in Kentucky, and we ate plenty of chicken, but it was fried chicken.  I had never heard of this dish until I got married, and yep, I thought it was really strange that it was served on top of mashed potatoes.  But that’s how I’ve been making it for more than thirty years now, and everyone in my family loves it.

I would like to dedicate this post to my mother-in-law, who passed away in 2010.  This is a photo taken of her with my kids when they were young.

To make these homemade noodles, you roll the dough very thin, then you roll it up like a jelly roll and slice it.  After that, you unroll the long strips of dough and cut them into shorter noodles.  I actually have a pasta attachment for my KitchenAid mixer, and I used it for this recipe once.  It turns out that I prefer the way they look when they are rolled and cut by hand.
