Ingredients

NOODLES

1 ¼ cups flour
2 eggs
3 tablespoons water
 
SOUP
3 cups water
4 ½ cups low-sodium chicken broth (see notes)
2 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
2 cups mixed vegetables, fresh, canned, or frozen
¼ teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. For noodles: Put flour in a medium bowl, make a well in center, and add eggs. Mix well. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough is stiff but easy to roll.
  2. Place dough onto a floured surface. Roll dough to 1/8 inch thickness using a rolling pin or a sturdy, straight sided drinking glass or jar.
  3. Cut into 1/4 to 1/2 inch strips, about 3-5 inches long. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  4. For soup: In a large pot, add water and chicken broth; bring to a boil.
  5. Add noodles a few at a time to water and chicken broth mixture. Bring the soup back to a boil.
  6. Add chicken, vegetables, and pepper. Boil for 12-15 minutes or until noodles are tender. Serve warm.
  7. Refrigerate or freeze within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Broth can be canned or made using bouillon. For each cup of broth use 1 cup very hot water and 1 teaspoon or 1 cube bouillon.
  • Try whole wheat flour to include whole grains.
  • Freeze extra for another meal.
