I love having a kitchen all to myself!!!
Ross is on a rice and chicken diet, so yesterday I made just that: Rice and chicken. But that got boring. So I thought why not try to make something a little different, but still light.
So I made chicken and noodles... just like my mom used to do it! Now, I'm not sure if she made her own broth and noodles..but I did (thanks to the instruction from the husband of one of my friends and the recipe from my aunt).
Here's what I did:
2 carrots, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
enough flour so the dough isn't sticky
couple pinches of salt
(Lightly beat eggs, then keep adding flour until dough isn't sticky. Roll out on a floured surface as thick as you want the noodles to be. Add more flour to the top to prevent sticking. Roll the dough in a jellyroll. Cut in pieces across then in half. Pull apart. DONE!)
Put the backbone and wing into an oiled pan. Brown it for a few minutes. Add as much water as you want broth. Add the carrots and onion, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the rest of the chicken and turn heat to low for a nice simmer (covered). Let that go for an hour. Strain. Pulled meat out. Put in noodles and just enough broth to cover them with a little extra. Put carrots and onions back in. Bring to a boil. Add shredded chicken. Cook for 15 or so minutes until the noodles are done. If broth is too thin, add a couple tablespoons of flour mixed with cold water to thicken. Add salt and pepper to taste. MMMM!!!
