Fall into Flavor

I love the cool weather when I can start using my crockpot more and pull out the chili recipes!!  This following recipe is our family's favorite (meaning we all five love it and will eat it) and we found it while living up in Amish country.  For those of you that need a "balanced" meal with vegie, might have to add something to is a starch fest, but deeee-li-cious!!

Amish Chicken and Noodles

1 whole chicken or chicken pieces
3-4 Tbls Jameson (or equivalent) chicken soup base
Remes frozen egg noodles
julienne carrots

Boil chicken with salt and pepper till done.  Take out of liquid and cool to debone.  Add to water: noodles, carrots and soup base.  Simmer on low till noodles are done.  When cool enough, debone chicken and cut/tear into pieces and add to pot.  As it cooks, it will thicken up. taste to see if you need more salt/pepper or soup base. Before serving, make some homemade mashed potatoes.  Serve chicken and noodles over a big scoop of mashed potatoes!  enjoy!!

What a great comfort food! I'm not familiar with the soup base or noodles... where do you find them?

What I'm so excited about in this meme is that nearly every recipe, about 99%, I think, "I could make that!" I wonder if I can find those specific ingredients here in Indiana. Thanks for contributing! And stay tuned for a post in which I mention your replies sto the questions about jobs and TV!

THIS...I must try. I've made a promise to DH (who will be home very late everyday this week) to have something waiting in the crockpot. This is Thursday's :-)

This sounds fantastic, like the ultimate comfort food. The air is crisp and chilly tonight and a big dish of this sounds perfect right now.
