Mom's Chicken and Noodles

This week I'm joining in with the cooks at "Foodie Friday"! Michael at Designs by Gollum hosts this great party!! See everyone's recipe's at:

Mom's Chicken and Noodles

Probably everyone has a version of this but this is how Mom did it. It's easy and basic, hearty and wonderful!
I put 3 quartered chicken legs in enough water to fully cover them in a big soup pot. I added cut up celery and onions and salt and pepper.

I boiled this until the chicken started to get tender and then added carrots and cut up potatoes.
I kept cooking at a medium heat till the carrots and potatoes were about tender and the meat was falling off the bones. I took the meat out and removed the bones then replaced the meat.

Time for the noodles. Mom would've made homemade noodles. She called them "cut off the dish noodles". However, I had these so I used them. Close enough!

Cook till tender and the broth cooks down and thickens up.

I wanted the broth a little thicker so I used Mom's handy shaker thing and added a little flour and water. You shake it real hard and it gets the lumps out.

Here it is, a very hearty, tasty dish!

Mmmmmmmm. I saved some for the next night and froze the rest.

Then I let Rocky lick the pot. He waits for that you know!!! It's OK, I have a dishwasher!

If I wasn't full enough . . . I had a big piece of peach cobble for desert!!!!

But you know, it seems after I really sort of eat too much, Green Tea makes it seem OK and even healthy!!!!! : ))
Do you find that to be so???
Have a great Friday!!
