My Grandma's Chicken Noodles

When we were young our grandmother would cook a special meal for us for our birthdays. We could request anything we wanted, and me and my brother both always requested the same thing, each and every year, well into adulthood! Her homemade chicken noodles! Oh, they were so good! She would serve them over mashed potatoes(I'll post my own recipe for those on a following post!)

Grandma's Chicken Noodles
The base is simple enough, just boil some chicken until cooked and cut into big chunks or bite sized pieces. I like to use canned chicken broth rather than water for more flavor. Add a little salt and pepper. It really is that simple, yet so tasty. I used boneless skinless breasts, but if you want the best flavor use the whole chicken on the bone, and after cooked remove meat from the bone. Seeing how I rarely eat meat, and can't if it resembles it's natural form in any way, the boneless, skinless works for me!!
The Noodles
3 eggs
3 tbls milk
enough flour to make a very stiff dough
Mix all ingredients, and roll out about 1/4 inch onto wax paper. Let set out to dry for an hour or more(you can skip this step if short on time)
Cut into strips and add to boiling soup and cook for 15-20 minutes. Serve on mashed potatoes!
