We made some quick and tasty chicken and noodles tonight. I was looking for something easy to fix after a busy day and this fit the bill perfectly.
- 4 carrots – cut into bite sized chunks
- 4 celery stalk – sliced
- 1/4 cup onion – diced
- 8 o.z. mushrooms – sliced
- 1 Tbs butter
- 2 boneless chicken breasts – diced
- 6 o.z. egg noodles
- 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
- salt and pepper and a pinch of thyme and cayenne if desired
In large skillet combine carrots, celery, onion, mushrooms, and butter. Cook for about 5 minutes. If using raw chicken add to the vegetables now and cook for about 5 minutes more to sear the chicken. Add the chicken stock and noodles and cook for 10 – 15 minutes or until noodles are cooked to desired tenderness. (if using pre-cooked chicken add during last few minutes of noodle cook time). Season as desired.
