chicken noodle soup

Last weekend, while we were grocery shopping, I picked up a package of Essenhaus Amish Kluski Noodles. Zach was pretty excited about a new meal, and I was a little nervous since I didn't have a recipe to follow. I really like recipes - I do have a chemistry degree, so I have learned that bad things can happen when you don't follow the directions! Anyways, here is what I did...

1. melt 1 t. butter in stockpot on med-high heat
2. add 2-3 chicken breasts seasoned with Herbs de Provence, salt, and lots of pepper
3. rotate the chicken so it browns on all sides
4. add 2 c. chicken broth and 1 c. water and bring to a boil
5. reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour (until chicken is tender enough to pull apart)
6. add about 1/2 of the noodles, 1-2 c. broth, salt and return to a boil
7. reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 45 minutes, until noodles are soft

Zach and I both gave it thumbs up - it's the perfect comfort food and I think the herbs give it great flavor. If you are using unsalted chicken stock, make sure to add plenty of salt as the soup is cooking. Now I just need Zach to learn how to make it for me when I am sick.
