recipe courtesy of Amy Dott Harmer

Put the following in a crock pot:

8 cups water with ¼ cup chicken bouillon granules or 8 cups of chicken broth

2 cups chopped carrots

2 cups chopped celery

¾ cup chopped onion

2 cans cream of chicken soup

¼ cup evaporated milk or ½ cup whole milk

2 cups of cooked, diced chicken

3 bay leaves

1 teaspoon lemon pepper

1 teaspoon salt

On the stove top in a pan make a roux (melt one cube butter and then wisk in ¾ cup flour)

Pour the mixture into your crock pot

Cook on low in the crock put for 3-4 hours

Add the noodles of your choice or homemade noodles just before serving

Rough Homemade Noodles:

Mix 1 egg

Add 2 tablespoons milk

Add ½ teaspoon salt

Add flour and mix with a fork until the dough is difficult to work with

Use your hand to knead flour into the dough until the dough is not sticky

Roll dough on cutting board or counter until very thin

Cut into strips with pizza cutter

Leave noodles to dry out (about an hour)

Cook in boiling salt water for 10 or 15 minutes

Double this recipe for chicken noodle soup

Noodles will continue to expand so, if using in a crockpot, add the finished (cooked) noodles the last 10 minutes
