Ingredients
  

  • 7 c. water
  • 3 - 4 c. chicken broth
  • 1 Tbs. butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (optional)
  • 2 Tbs. onion, chopped (optional)
  • 1 c. carrots, cut into small bite-sized pieces (optional)
  • 1 1/2 - 2 c. potatoes, cut into bite sized chunks
  • 1 c. green peas (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 - 2 c. chopped, cooked chicken
  • 1 1/2 - 2 Tbs. flour and enough water to make a paste

For the noodle dough:

  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 c. flour

Instructions
 

  • If you don't already have some cooked chicken, you will need to cook chicken.

Making the noodle dough:

  • Beat eggs in a small bowl. Add water and salt. Mix.
    2 large eggs, beaten, 1/2 c. water, 1 tsp. salt
  • Add flour and mix until it comes together in a ball. If it seems too sticky just add a bit more flour.
    2 c. flour
  • Cover and set aside while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Making the chicken pot pie:

  • Put butter in a large cooking pot. Add minced garlic, onion (if desired) and carrots. Saute over medium high heat for a minute or two.
    1 Tbs. butter, 1 garlic clove, minced (optional), 2 Tbs. onion, chopped (optional), 1 c. carrots, cut into small bite-sized pieces (optional)
  • Add water and broth to pot, and bring to a boil.
    7 c. water, 3 - 4 c. chicken broth
  • As you're waiting for this to come to a boil, flour your surface and roll out your dough to about 1/8" thick. Using a pizza cutter, cut your dough into about 1 1/2" squares.
  • Drop your dough into the boiling water/broth, making sure each piece hits the boiling liquid. If you pile to many in at once they will stick together. Stir.
  • Boil the noodles for 15 - 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add potatoes, peas, chicken, and seasonings. Boil for another 12 - 15 minutes.
    1 1/2 - 2 c. potatoes, cut into bite sized chunks, 1 c. green peas (optional), 1/2 tsp. salt, 3/4 tsp. seasoning salt, 1 - 2 c. chopped, cooked chicken, 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • Make a paste with flour and water to slightly thicken the broth.
    1 1/2 - 2 Tbs. flour and enough water to make a paste
  • When your chicken pot pie is finished cooking, slowly add your flour paste, stirring to get it incorporated. Boil for about 1 more minute.

Notes

You don't want to roll your noodle dough paper-thin or it will tend to mush. But it will also have a weird texture if you get it too thick. Around 1/8 " thick should be good. Cooking time may also vary according to how thick the noodles are.
You can add or subtract any vegetables you want. (Honestly, we never added carrots or peas, and those are just my additions to get more veggies into the pot.) Feel free to add a tsp. of thyme or parsley.
If you prefer a higher broth to noodles ratio, add more broth.
