Chicken & Gravy with Homemade Noodles

Remember those homemade egg noodles I shared the recipe for yesterday? Well, here’s how I used them in our dinner – chicken and gravy with homemade noodles.

This meal is all about basic down home comfort. The flavors blend together to create a creamy, delicious combination. It reminds me of something you’d get at Cracker Barrel or a similar restaurant, but I think it’s a thousand times better. And the smell while it simmers! There’s nothing that can compare.


Chicken & Gravy with Homemade Noodles

  • 4 c. chicken stock
  • 1 – 2  lb. chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1/2 lb. baby carrots
  • 2 t. dill
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. black pepper
  • 1 batch homemade egg noodles

1. In a large sauce pan or stock pot, combine chicken stock, chicken, carrots and seasoning. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon and set aside to cool.

2. Add cut noodles to pot. Return to a boil and let boil until noodles are desired tenderness, about 7-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the noodles. The broth will thicken as the noodles cook until it is a gravy consistency.

3. Shred or dice cooled chicken and return to pot. Stir to combine and continue cooking until heated through. Serve immediately, or refrigerate and warm on the stove before serving.

  1. Such a complete and delicious meal. I would like to invite you to participate in Crock Pot Wednesday at Come check it out.

  2. I made this yesterday, and it was AMAZING. I goofed my noodles, though, and cut them way too thick. They were awesome, once they cooked for…an hour? Dinner was very late, but like I said, amazing.

  3. I made this for dinner tonight (except I added onions, garlic, celery, and sauteed mushrooms). It was AWESOME. Thanks so much for the recipe!

  4. Made this for dinner on Wednesday night. I’ve always thought about making homemade noodles, but never taken the time. It was so easy! Thanks for the inspiration. Yum!

  5. Mine doesn’t look like it was thickening up. Did I do something wrong? I added more chicken stock to the noodles b/c I was afraid they weren’t going to cook with just the 4 cups. Is this what made it less thick??

  6. Having read this I thought it was rather informative. I
    appreciate you spending some time and effort to put
    this informative article together. I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and
    commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!

  7. My six-year-old and I made this together for dinner tonight. I haven’t made it in a long, long time (and it was delicious as always) – she was so excited to learn how to make her own noodles!
