Old Fashioned Chicken N' Noodles

Winna Winna Chicken Dinner!

Both kids enjoyed this for lunch this afternoon. It is almost like a hardy soup with lots of noodles. Served with warm pretzel rolls. We had a few guest tasters including my mom and Little Man's God Mother and they both said it was delicious and a keeper!

2.5- 3 pounds bone in chicken (I used 2 large double skinless but with bone chicken breasts)

1 small onion chopped

1/2 cup thinly sliced celery

1 clove garlic minced

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning

1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme (I used dried)

10.5 ounces condensed chicken broth

1/4 cup corn starch

1/3 cup cold water

8-12 ounces egg noodles

chopped fresh parsley

I added a few sliced mushrooms for flavor and color.

Rinse chicken and pat with paper towel. Combine chicken, onion, celery, garlic, salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, thyme and mushrooms together in the crock. Add chicken broth. Cover and cook on low for aprox. 4 hours or until chicken is cooked.

Remove bones and cut chicken in bite sized pieces. Set aside

Turn control to HIGH. dissolve cornstarch into cold water. Stir into juices in the crock. Cover and cook on high for 15-20 minutes until sauce thickens. Stir in chicken pieces.

Meanwhile cook noodles per directions. Spoon mixture over cooked noodles and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
