6–8 ribs of celery, with leaves
1 1/2 large Sweet Onions, skins on and quartered
4 large Carrots, unpeeled
6 large Garlic Cloves, crushed, paper still on
4 large Bone-In Chicken Breasts, skin on
2 – 32 oz Chicken Broth
1 stick of Butter
2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
1/2 cup All Purpose Flour mixed with 1/2 cup Water (use as needed)
Preheat oven to 450° F. Add celery, onions, carrots, garlic, chicken, salt and pepper and the chicken stock to a large dutch oven and cook for 50-60 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer is 165°.
Remove Chicken from the pan. When the chicken is cool, cut into cubes.
Strain the stock through a cheesecloth and discard veggies.
Bring the stock to a boil and add homemade egg noodles. Reduce heat to medium. Stir occasionally while cooking for 9-10 minutes or until tender. Add the stick of butter.
To thicken the broth further, whisk 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 water until smooth. Begin with a small amount of the flour/water mixture. Add it to the broth and stir constantly but gently so you don’t break up the noodles. Continue with more flour/water mixture until you achieve the desired consistency. It should be more like gravy than soup.
Use a large bowl with a large metal sieve for straining the chicken stock. It helps if you add a doubled piece of cheesecloth to the sieve to remove any additional particles that were collected while the stock was cooking.
When cooking the noodles, stir occasionally so they do not stick to the bottom of the pan but stir gently as to not break the noodles apart.
When you are thickening the broth, start with a small amount of the flour/water mixture, maybe 1/4 of a cup. Make sure the broth is hot when you add it as this is what helps thicken the Chicken and Noodles.
