Chicken pot pie and noodles

So chicken pot pie is one of the most beloved meals in my family. Honestly, it is. My recipe makes 4 pies. And those pies are gone within 2 days. I actually stole my moms recipe and threw in a little twist to make it my own.

Well last night I got a craving for some chicken pie. I mean its fall. It’s getting chilly. Who wouldn’t want some comfort food to make you warm? I know I did. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any pie crusts and I wasn’t in the mood to make any by hand. What I did have, however, is egg noodles. So the birth of chicken pie noodle soup was born. (Don’t take it too literal….I’m sure someone else has done this before.)

What you will need:

Roughly about a 1lb of chicken…cooked….I used 2 big chicken breast cut into cubes and baked.

1 bag egg noodles

2 cans cream of chicken soup

1 container chicken broth

1 bag frozen mixed veggies

Water. I used about 2 of the soup can full of water.

Seasonings…this is up in the air. It’s actually based on what one likes. Spicy or more herbs. Whatever your taste buds desire.

You will want to cook the chicken prior. I always cut it up bake it with some salt and pepper maybe some other seasons, just depends what I’m feeling

The next part is by far the easiest recipe you will find. Throw all the ingredients into a pot except the egg noodles. Let this warm thru. (Please don’t really throw the ingredients…unless you’re prepared to clean up the mess).

Once the veggies are just about done (I determine this by how easy is it to bite thru the carrot or pea) add the egg noodles. Allow to simmer until the noodles are done and serve.

While the broth is heating you can add the seasons you want. Im not a fan of recipes that try to tell people exactly what season they need to use….what if I don’t like basil? Is it really going to ruin the dish if I dont put it in? So, in pretty much all my recipes…the seasonings like lemon pepper, cayenne, etc is up to the reader. Do you like hot food? My brother does, so he would add more hot spices to his food.

But there you are. A simple yet comforting dish that doesn’t take long at all.
