Amish noodles and boiled chicken thighs Redone!!!!

This recipe takes time but is well worth it! The ingredient list seems a little intimidating but you dont need all the different spices. Just use what you have and what you like. This is a great base recipe. Feel free to play with it and let me know what you like to do!

What you need:
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 4 cups egg noodles
  • 2 cans chicken stock
  • 1 cube chicken boullien
  • 2 T butter
  • vermont white cheddar cheese(could use something else this is just what I had on hand)
  • apple cidar vinegar
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • tabasco
  • rotisserie chicken seasoning (again just what I had on hand)
  • chopped onion
  • black peppercorns
  • smoked paprika
  • white pepper
  • bay leaves

What you do:
  1.  Remove skin from chicken thighs
  2. Start marinating chicken in a mixture of apple cidar vinegar, a little water, crushed red pepper flakes, rotisserie chicken seasoning and a couple splashes of tabasco. Leave on counter.(randomly flip while working on other things)
  3. Start making stock to boil chicken in. I did about 4 quarts water then added in a couple hand full of chopped onion, some whole black peppercorns, smoked paprika, white pepper, and 4 bay leaves. Put on high!
  4. Once water is on high turn down and let simmer for as long as you can so flavors can combine more.
  5. Put butter in large pot and let brown. Make sure it doesnt burn though.
  6. Add in chicken broth and boullien cube. Bring to a boil. 
  7. Add noodles and return to boil. 
  8. As soon as it is boiling cover and turn off heat. Be sure you leave it on the same burner! Stir after 10 minutes.
  9. At this point put chicken in simmering stock.
  10. After another 10 minutes stir everything again. 
  11. If chicken is not  almost done take off the bone and return to stock.
  12. After another 10 minutes stir everything again. At this point the noodles should be done. If either ingredient isn't finished leave both in their dish and just let continue cooking. 
  13. Once chicken and noodles are done drain the noodles and return to pan. 
  14. Grate a couple handfuls white cheddar cheese and mix in.
  15. remove chicken from broth and cut up. 
  16. mix everything together!
So like I said it takes time but everything develops great flavors!
