16oz of Amish Egg Noodles
fresh parsley
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

all in


*Note: Be careful when you invite your friends over for Chicken Noodle Soup.

Discard bay leaves and remove chicken from crockpot. Shred chicken apart with two forks. Add noodles, peas, and parsley to crockpot and increase the temperature to high and cook for another 10 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and return the chicken to the crockpot.



amish*Note:Freak out when noodles have soaked up all of your broth and you are left with stuffing. Check pasta bag and realize you bought Amish Egg noodles instead of regular egg noodles. Amish egg noodles turn into a thick doughy pasta, similar to a dumpling.

Well, lesson learned and all I have to say is I’m thankful for Danielle, Odom, and Shannon for being very understanding and positive guest. I served them stuffing in a bowl with grilled cheeses…and they were happy. I on the other hand was cursing the Amish pasta. The next night however was much better because I placed biscuits on top of my leftover “soup” and it was the perfect chicken pot pie (or chicken and dumplings if you will) creation.
