the best Chicken and Noodles step by step recipe

Getting Started

Before we start preparing the recipe, let’s first gather all the required ingredients. You will need boneless and skinless chicken breasts, egg noodles, chicken broth, and a few basic pantry staples. With just a handful of ingredients, you can make a delicious and filling meal that will satisfy even the most discerning eaters.

Preparing the Chicken

To prepare the chicken, start by seasoning it with salt and pepper, or adding some herbs and spices to enhance the flavor. Cook the chicken until it turns golden brown and is cooked through. This will fill your kitchen with a delightful aroma that will make everyone’s mouth water in anticipation.

How to cook Chicken and Noodles

Cooking the Noodles

While the chicken is cooking, it’s time to prepare the noodles. Boil a pot of water and add the egg noodles. Cook them according to the instructions on the package, until they are al dente, which means they should have a slight bite to them. Once the noodles are cooked, drain the water and set them aside for later.

Bringing It All Together

After the chicken and noodles are fully cooked, it’s time to mix them together. In a large pot, add the cooked chicken, cooked noodles, and chicken broth. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for a few minutes to allow the flavors to blend together.

As the dish simmers, the chicken will become even more tender, and the noodles will soak up all the delicious flavors from the broth. This will result in a comforting and aromatic dish that will make your taste buds dance with joy.

A fairly good lunch option, quite balanced in terms of the amount of protein, fats, and carbohydrates. This lunch is suitable for both a weight gain program (and can be eaten shortly after a workout) and for a weight maintenance or even weight loss program. Don't forget to supplement Chicken and Noodles with vegetables to increase your fiber intake. I do not recommend this dish for dinner because the combination of noodles and poultry can be heavy for an evening meal. However, if your dinner is early, and your goal is to gain weight, then this dish is acceptable.

For an extra layer of richness, consider finishing the dish with a drizzle of good-quality olive oil or a dollop of butter. This not only adds a luxurious touch to the chicken and noodles but also enhances the overall mouthfeel. Don't forget to sprinkle some freshly chopped herbs like parsley or chives before serving – it's a small detail that makes a big difference in elevating the dish to a gourmet level.
