Chicken and Noodles

Last night I was helping Stephen study and trying to clean out the fridge. I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of time cooking dinner, so I decided to make chicken and noodles just like my mother-in-law makes, but with a few added ingredients. Not only is this meal light and healthy, but it comes together quickly and makes great leftovers.

  1. I’ve always made soup, but when the weather is warmer and I still need to clean out the fridge… I like this idea. Please share this on my foodie friday party and I will pin it too.

  2. A really classic recipe… I like the egg noodles instead of regular pasta. Thanks for sharing this on foodie friday.
