Easy Chicken and Noodles

Okay here it is. I can't believe that everybody likes this version so well.

I prefer my grandmothers recipe myself. But Jeff doesn't like homemade egg noodles and who has time to boil and debone a whole chicken? So here goes.

You will need.
3 chicken breast halves
1 carton of chicken broth
1 carrot (chopped)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 bag of frozen noodles
4 cups of water
1 bay leaf
2 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
yellow food coloring

Cut chicken into bite size chunks. In dutch oven add chicken, broth, carrot, water, bay leaves and garlic simmer for 1/2 an hour. Bring to a boil and add the noodles and cream of mushroom soup. Boil for about 10 minutes. salt and pepper to taste. Add a few drops of food coloring, make some mashed potatoes and viola! Easy chicken and noodles.
hint: I add corn starch to make my broth thicker.

Feeds 4-6 hungry humans or more if you want to add some veggies and dessert on the side.

Oh My God ! Another Blog !

Well I must be hooked. I was checking out some cooking blogs and thought it would be nice to put down some of the dishes my kids like.

Now that they are getting out on their own they will probably be calling me asking how do you make your meatballs? How much sugar do you put in your sauce? How do you make homemade ice cream?

So why not just write it all down where they can look it up whenever they want? Great idea don't ya think?

I got to thinking I didn't want to put recipes down on my garden blog. I already clutter it up with everyday stuff. Now I just have to figure out how to make an index of the different recipes.

I won't post a recipe today because #1. I was'nt prepared to put one down. #2. It took time to make this and I have lot's to do yet today. and finally #3. I don't measure when I cook unless it's out of a box. So It will take some time to figure how much of this and how much of that I use.

So I guess I'll go and do what I gotta do. And I promise that I'll put recipes in here soon. Later
