Chicken and Noodles over Mashed Potatoes

This is a wonderful recipe my mother used to make in the winter time.  I always loved it and now my kiddos LOVE it.  It’s thick and creamy and can be served alone or on a bed of mashed potatoes.   It’s the ultimate comfort food and high in carbs but your family will feel the love. This recipe makes a boatload and freezes like a dream.  In fact, when you decide to eat the rest of it up, you can always add some extra chicken stock and just have it as Chicken Noodle Soup!  It is best made with homemade noodles, but I’ve found Reames Homestyle egg noodles work great.  Perfect for a cold winter night:)

3 cups shredded chicken or turkey
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
2-32oz boxes of chicken stock or broth or homemade is even better!
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp onion powder
Reames Homestyle Egg Noodles (found in the freezer section)
Potatoes for mash potatoes

Mix all ingredients except chicken/turkey. When combined completely add poultry.  Bring to a boil and add the noodles a handful at a time until they are all in the pot! After cooking there should be VERY little broth.  You want it thick.  Sorry, I forgot to take a picture with the chicken and noodles. 😦

Ladle your noodles over a bed of mashed potatoes and eat your heart out.  If you don’t have a great mashed potato recipe, here is a great one from my frugal gal Loaded Mashed Potatoes20131030-190459.jpg
