Chicken N’ Noodles

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

Today, I am sharing with you my Chicken N’ Noodle recipe. We usually have this meal at least twice a month, it’s easy to prepare, all of the family likes it, even my picky eater son, and it makes tons, which is great for leftovers. I have even froze the leftovers before.

I start by boiling a whole chicken, this week I happened to have some chicken breasts in the freezer that I had bought on sale.


I usually let the chicken boil a few hours on the stovetop. Sometimes I bake it in the oven or throw it in the Crockpot, but I think the best flavor comes from when I boil it.

After it’s done, I remove the chicken, and strain the broth. I usually have to add some water, then I boil the noodles. I use 2 bags of noodles.

After the noodles are done, I drain them saving the broth. I combine the noodles and chicken (that I pull from the bone, or make my husband do it :)) with 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, 1 can of milk and enough broth to moisten the mixture. As you reheat, you may need to add more broth. Sometimes, if we are going to be gone, I throw the mixture in the Crockpot on low to stay warm.


Chicken $5.10

Noodles $1.98 (2 bags)

Soup $.98 (2 cans)

Milk, seasonings, onions $1.00 (max)

Total $9.06  (this was enough for 2 meals plus lots of leftovers)

I’m updating this post to include it with the Make-Ahead Meals Chicken Linky.

      @Sls, Sure, I boil a whole chicken with a cut onion, a couple stalks of celery and a couple carrots, all chopped, a handful of spices, like parsley, salt & pepper. And about 5-6 chicken boullion cubes, if I have them. Bring to a boil, them simmer for a couple hrs. You could use chicken breast but the bones in the chicken gives all the flavor, I hate to de-bone also, I usually have my husband do it. Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.
      Thanks for stopping by!

    I can hardly believe many “Hoosier Noodle Recipes” call for store bought noodles. I watched my mother over the years making her noodles, and I followed the same method she used. For generations, we served the noodles over mashed potatoes, and they were so good leftover. My mother was born in 1906 and I was born in 1933. I do not remember a family dinner with my Mom’s siblings that we didnot have Hoosier Noodles.
