I tried this recipe tonight for the first time and it’s a keeper! I was feeling a little under the weather when I got home so I was craving some comfort food. To save myself some time I picked up a rotisserie chicken and used that instead of the chicken breasts. The egg noodles take this over the top, along with the addition of various spices. Try it soon – you will love it.

Comfort Food!
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 small diced onion
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder (for seasoning chicken breasts)
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp each of salt, pepper, oregano, and thyme
  • 1 tsp each of paprika, onion powder, garlic powder
  • 1 lb chicken breasts (I used a rotisserie chicken)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 12 ounces of Egg Noodles

Instructions:

  • Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise to make them thinner. Season the chicken with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder (I don’t use exact measurements for this part).
  • Next, get your skillet over medium heat and add in 3 Tablespoons of butter and your chopped veggies.
  • Once those start to soften up, add in one more Tablespoon of butter along with 3 Tablespoons of flour stirring it all together to form a roux.
  • Add in the minced garlic and 2 cups of chicken broth and stir well. Season with salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder. Stir well and when it starts bubbling add the chicken to the skillet and boil your egg noodles.
  • Make sure the chicken is covered in the sauce, cover with a lid, and turn the heat down to medium low. Let this cook for 12-15 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temp of 165 degrees. My chicken was ready in 12 minutes, but they were pretty thin.
  • To finish up just shred the chicken with a couple of forks and stir in the heavy cream and the cooked egg noodles!
  • Enjoy!
