Creamy Chicken and Noodles

Right now it is bitter cold in Utah, were talking 3 degrees at night,  and comfort food is still on my mind.  Today’s recipe is one I made for my family over the holiday break.  I adapted it from a recipe I got from my husband’s cousin.  It is simple, delicious, and comforting.  Just what I needed.

You can always use a rotisserie chicken to speed up the process with this one.  I also love the flavor that it adds to this dish.  You can even substitute some of the chicken for leftover cooked vegetables or thawed frozen veggies such as peas to add more flavor and nutrition to this dish.

It is very rare that I make requests like this, but I am asking for your prayers this week.  My daughter is scheduled to have a heart monitor (loop recorder) implanted this week.  The doctors say it is minor surgery but it is still scary to this mom.  Anytime your kids are put under for anything, it is concerning to any mom.  The health issues my daughter has just makes it even more concerning.

We are hoping that if we have this monitor implanted that they will be able to get data about my daughters heart the next time she passes out.  This way we will know if her heart is the cause or not and give us more answers.  I will let you know how things go when I have anything to update you on.

  • Eight thumbs up from here. Can I get an amen for the frozen peas? They are the workhorse of the freezer at my house.

  • Great recipe! I will burn a candle and think of your family.

  • This surely looks delicious and comforting…sending my prayers your way 🙂

  • I stumbled on this recipe/post by chance and felt inspired to leave you a comment. My Son, who is now 11, began having problems when he was 3. He would seize up and pass out cold, his heart would stop. After 6 months of tests and Dr.s we found one who knew what the problem was. He was diagnosed with NeuroCardioGenicSyncopi. They wanted to do the same procedure that it sounds like your daughter is going to have and we were able to get a diagnose without that, thank goodness.
    I don’t know what the outcome for your family will be, but I wanted to tell you that even though this affected our lives tremendously at first, things have been ok, good even. And as my son has gotten older the attacks have lessened to 1 or 2 a year.
    I hope all goes well with your daughter, my prayers are with you. The not knowing is the worst part.

  • Will be thinking about you and your family.

    I wonder if this would work with No Yolk egg noodles, and the low fat no sodium chicken soup….

  • Hope everything went well with your daughter – tried the recipe last night with the peas and it was great!

  • Good luck with your daughter. I wanted to thank you for this yummy recipe! It is so rare that the whole family likes a dish, this was heaven! I used a small package of frozen peas, and it added beautiful color and healthy vegies. It’s a keeper!

  • I’m just a random blog stalker, but I wanted to let you know I’m rooting for your daughter. Take care!

  • I will be praying for your daughter. It is awfully hard to watch our children go through difficult situations. She’s in my thoughts and prayers.

  • My thoughts are with you at this difficult time! Thanks for sharing this personal bit about yourself. I have been quietly lurking on your blog for months and months now. I use Evernote to save recipes that I like and it tells me that I have 72 of your recipes marked to try! – and quite a few of them I have already made. I feel like you’re a part of my family, have served your recipes at family gatherings along with my grandma’s and mom’s and mother-in-law’s recipes. 🙂 I hope that this procedure helps the doctors pin-point what is causing your daughter’s problems.

  • thoughts & prayers to your little one! Thanks for all the fabulous recipies!!!

    And… this soup looks like the perfect comfort food during this season.

  • Prayers are headed your way. I pray your daughter’s surgery goes well and you find the answers you are looking for. God Bless

  • Payers coming your way! If you could send some back, I’d appreciate it. My daughter [5 y/o] has decided to never eat solid food again after choking on Xmas day. Everyone says it will get better with time. The waiting is killing me.

    Much love and prayer to your daughter and you!

  • It is so hard not to be worried as a mom. My prayers are for your daughter and you all. Everything will be all right Laura.

    I still make chicken and noodles where I have to make my own noodles.
    Very labor intensive.

  • My prayers are with you and your daughter. May God wrap his arms around you both surrounding you in his protection and love. Keep us posted.
