Homemade Chicken N’ Noodles…an oldie but goodie!

I’ve shared this recipe before, it’s been a long time though, in fact, May 2009! I think it’s time to share again…don’t you think?

I’ve made Chicken N’ Noodles lots of different ways, but I always seem to keep coming back to this recipe. When you boil the chicken, it just adds so much more flavor to the Noodles.


Homemade Chicken ‘N’ Noodles

Homemade Chicken ‘N’ Noodles recipe from HoosierHomemade.com


  • 1 whole chicken (I buy mine at Aldi’s, usually around $4)
  • Onions, celery and carrots, chopped roughly
  • Salt, Pepper, Parsely flakes (any other seasoning you like)
  • 2 bags of wide noodles
  • 2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 can of milk


  1. Place chicken in a very large pot with vegetables and cover with water.
  2. Add seasonings.
  3. Bring to boil, and allow to boil for about 30 minutes, then turn to low and cook for 2-3 more hours. This will make a really great stock, that you will use to cook the noodles.
  4. Drain chicken, saving stock. You don’t need the veggies, they are just for flavor.
  5. Cook noodles in stock, drain, save stock.
  6. While the noodles are cooking you can de-bone the chicken.
  7. Add soup and milk to the noodles.
  8. Stir in chicken pieces. You may need to add a little stock to the Chicken N’ Noodles, if they are too dry.

Serve with Mashed Potatoes, a Veggie and some rolls for a perfect hearty meal that your family is sure to love!

Chicken N’ Noodles

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.
