A creamy and rich chicken and noodles dish that is fast to make and perfect on a chilly night. I like to top mine with some Crispy Parsley Bread Crumbs!


8 ounces egg noodles
4 cups chicken stock
1 cup shredded chicken
2 tablespoon butter
Pinch salt and pepper

Crispy Breadcrumbs:

1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 teas Garlic power
1/4 teas red pepper flakes
Pinch salt
1 teas fresh parsley


To make bread crumbs: add butter and breadcrumbs to a small skillet over low heat. Stir occasionally as bread crumbs cook and add salt and red pepper flakes and garlic powder. When bread crumbs are crispy and browned, remove from heat then stir in fresh parsley.

To make chicken and noodles:

Add noodles and chicken stock to a medium pot over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, uncovered. Let the noodles continue to cook, soaking up all the stock, until they are tender. It will take 12-15 minutes for the noodles to cook.

Finish the noodles with butter and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir in shredded chicken at the end of cooking. If the chicken and noodles seem dry or noodles aren’t cooked, then add an extra 1/2 cup of water or chicken stock. If it seems too soupy, you can scoop out a little of the cooking liquid.

Serve steaming hot chicken and noodles with crispy bread crumbs.
