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

  2. 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.
