Equipment

  • Dutch Oven

Ingredients
  

  • 2 lbs boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (to cover the dutch oven)
  • 3 large carrots peeled and sliced
  • 3 celery stalks chopped
  • 1 1/2 yellow onion diced
  • 1 tbsp rotisserie chicken seasoning (or garlic salt, onion salt, sea salt + pepper)
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • sea salt + ground pepper
  • 6 oz extra wide egg noodles (or half a bag)

Instructions
 

  • Season both sides of chicken thighs with rotisserie seasoning (or a combo of garlic salt, onion salt, sea salt + pepper).
  • Drizzle olive oil in the bottom of a dutch oven and warm over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • Add carrots, onions, and celery. Add garlic powder, onion powder, dried herbs, salt and pepper. Cover with water. Cook over low-medium heat for 30-40 minutes or until chicken starts to break easily.
  • Remove chicken and place on a cutting board or plate. Use a fork and knife to shred or finely chop chicken. Dump the chicken back into the dutch oven. Stir.
  • Add the egg noodles and more water to cover the ingredients. Cook 7-10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Carefully sample the broth + noodles - if it tastes bland, add more seasoning! If there is too much seasoning, add more water and cook for 5 extra minutes.
  • Serve immediately with crackers or crusty buttered bread. ENJOY!
  • Note: If you like fresh herbs, use thyme and parsley!
