Makes: 6 servings
Prep 45 mins Cook 35 mins
Hearty Chicken and Noodles
  • 3  chicken legs (thigh-drumstick portions) (about 2 pounds total)
  • 2 1/4  cups  water
  • 1 14  ounce can  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1  bay leaf
  • 1  tablespoon  snipped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 3/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 2  cups  sliced carrot (4 medium)
  • 1 1/2  cups  chopped onion (2 large)
  • 3  cups  dried wide noodles
  • 2  cups  milk
  • 1  cup  loose-pack frozen peas
  • 2  tablespoons  all-purpose flour

1. Remove skin from chicken. In a 4- to 5-quart Dutch oven, combine chicken, the water, broth, bay leaf, dried thyme (if using), salt, and pepper. Add carrot and onion. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (180 degrees F). Discard bay leaf.

2. Remove chicken from Dutch oven; cool slightly. Remove meat from bones; discard bones. Chop or shred chicken; set aside.

3. Return vegetable mixture to boiling. Add noodles; cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Stir in 1-1/2 cups of the milk and the peas.

4. In a screw-top jar, combine remaining 1/2 cup milk and flour. Cover and shake until smooth. Stir into the noodle mixture. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Stir in chicken and fresh thyme (if using). Cook for 1 to 2 minutes more or until heated through. Makes 6 servings.
