Chicken and Noodles Recipe: Easy Dinner Idea

This Chicken and Noodles Recipe is so easy and quick. Make it at the last minute and it tastes like you’ve been cooking all day!

The weather here in Ohio has been just dreadful. This week especially seemed to last forever. Every once in a while the sun would peek through, but mostly it’s been cloudy and gray. One of the best ways to combat the cold is with good, old-fashioned comfort food…like this chicken and noodles recipe. This probably shouldn’t even be considered an official recipe because there isn’t much to it. The result, however, is amazing.

Chicken and Noodles Recipe Tips

  • You can add the dark meat from the chicken if you want to…that’s totally a personal choice.
  • Make sure and add the juice floating in the bottom of the chicken bag to the broth. Even if it’s just a tiny bit, it will add unbelievable flavor.
  • My favorite noodles are Kluski noodles…but any egg noodle will work. When I was growing up, my mom made this recipe with her own homemade noodles. Of course, it was much more work and she didn’t have the convenience of deli rotisserie chicken. It was delicious though.
  • My mom served her chicken and noodles over mashed potatoes, so that’s what I have always done. If that’s too many carbs for you, it’s just perfect all on its own.
  • This dish is very similar to my Chicken Noodle Casserole and Chicken Noodle Soup. All are family favorites.
  • The noodles sometimes take on a life of their own as they cook. As noted in the printable recipe below, just add more chicken broth.
  • It makes enough to feed an army so if you cook it on the weekend, you have a second week day meal all ready to go. Honestly…it’s just as good, if not better, as leftovers!

Chicken and Noodles Recipe Variations:

  • This could be made a bit healthier if you used low sodium chicken broth and whole wheat noodles. If you try it that way, let me know how it turns out.
  • Chopped celery and carrots can be sauteed in the pot with butter or olive oil before the chicken broth is added.

  4. Looks delicious! Can you tell me what company made those dishes? They are so pretty…thanks! ;)

    We def need our comfort foods with the – yet another- winter storm. It JUST stopped snowing. It’s beautiful but keeps me holed up in the house too long.

    Love chicken and noodles – you may want to add half a already cooked mild onion and a tsp of parsley flakes – and even a tsp of curry makes it amazing – lots of flavor w/o adding salt.

    This paired with a grilled cheese or peanut butter sandwich – heavenly.

    Keep warm, dry and safe.

    It sounds like the perfect comfort meal for these cold days! We do have sunshine today, but we are suppose to get a “wintery mix” on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Simple and delicious-my kind of recipe! : ) Did you use frozen egg noodles or dry noodles? Looks so yummy!


    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Jeanette! I use dry noodles from the grocery deli. They are made by an Amish business. I think kluski noodles or frozen noodles would be really good though. Honestly, I think any noodle will cook up in that broth and be delicious!
