Easy Chicken & Egg Noodles Recipe (Almost) Like Grandma Used to Make

My grandma made this chicken and egg noodle dish. When I started making this easy noodles and chicken recipe, I added garlic and browned the chicken to up the flavor factor. I know my grandma would have approved.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 4 to 5


  • 3 - 4 bone-in chicken breasts
  • olive oil
  • 1 package (12 ounces) egg noodles
  • baby carrots, leave whole if small and cut in half lengthwise if large
  • 5 - 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 - 3 ribs celery, chopped
  • dried parsley flakes (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a Dutch oven. Brown the chicken breasts well on both sides. Scoot the chicken over to make a hole and add the onion, baby carrots, celery and garlic. Cook, stirring, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add enough water to just cover the chicken and vegetables and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove chicken, bone and return to pot. (I turn the heat off while doing this.)
  3. Add the egg noodles and cook until done, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and lots of black pepper. Almost all of the water should have cooked out by the time the noodles are ready. Stir in some dried parsley (mainly for additional color). Serve.
