Amish Chicken and Noodles
This recipe became an immediate family favorite dinner. Comfort food at it’s finest and nothing but but the simplest of ingredients!
My husband and I recently discovered quite a bit of Pennsylvania Dutch in his family history. And I promptly became obsessed with Amish recipes 😂. It totally irritates my husband. He thinks his Mexican ancestry is much cooler and would rather me invest my time in learning how to make empanadas and homemade tortillas.
While I can appreciate a good homemade empanada, I happen to think having a rich Amish heritage is SO COOL. And I’ve decided to take the lead on teaching our kids about their Pennsylvania Dutch roots… through food.
For our family night this week, we made two Amish recipes: a chocolate cake and this odd-seeming mish-mash of comforting carbohydrates.
And let me tell you, to everyone’s great surprise… dinner stole the show! There’s not much that can compete with chocolate cake in my book (and trust me, it was a GOOD chocolate cake), but I’d take a heaping bowl of these Amish Chicken and Noodles any day of the week.
Here’s the breakdown:
The base is a hearty spoonful of mashed potatoes made with cream cheese, butter, and garlic. The stuff dreams are made of.
But here’s where the real magic happens: cook chicken thighs in a rich, flavorful stock. Remove the chicken and cook your HOMEMADE NOODLES in the same stock (don’t worry, it’s easy, I promise). Add the chicken back in, lose some of the liquid (although some of it’s going to stay in there and thicken into a beautiful gravy-like soup), and spoon all of that onto the potatoes.
There’s nary a green vegetable in sight, but I don’t think you’ll care. Just this once 😉
