“…just another excuse to bake a casserole” Those Crazy Christians by Brad Paisley
I made Chicken ‘n Noodles for Alan and Krystan tonight. I surprised myself with the realization that I hadn’t ever made chicken ‘n noodles before today, only beef ‘n noodles. Spencer and Logan were quite upset that I was giving away the entire pot.
I picked up some noodles from Lynette at the farmers market and then picked up my pastured chicken order from the dairy yesterday morning. I generally followed Ree’s recipe and was quite please with how it turned out. I skimmed the pot while the ckicken was boiling – she didn’t say anything about that. I didn’t use chicken soup base – pastured chicken tastes better than any store bought stock ever will. I used thyme leaves instead of ground thyme. I used onion which she says is optional. I used fewer carrots. Lynette’s noodles are the thin, small noodle-y noodles rather than the larger, thicker dumpling-y noodles like Reames.
