Homemade Noodles (with chicken)

As adventurous as I am with food, I am, for some reason, intimidated by anything that requires a rolling pin.  Up until Tuesday night, I avoided those recipes.  But thanks to my mom, I am no longer bound by my fear.  She walked me through my first batch of homemade noodles.  It was easier than I thought.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons milk (may need a bit more)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour plus more for dusting
  • 2 quarts chicken stock
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, shredded

Add salt and milk to eggs and beat well.  Add flour into egg mixture and stir until it sticks together enough to turn out onto a well-floured board.  We required roughly 2 more tablespoons of milk than what the recipe stated.

We also lined our board with wax paper to help prevent sticking.

Roll out very thin, using plenty of flour under and over the dough.

After slicing, pull the strips up and place them on a board with plenty of flour.

When noodles are done, stir in cooked chicken and allow to heat through.
