  • 68 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
  • 232 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.
  • Add chicken. Serve over garlic mashed potatoes.


  • 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.
