Creamed Chicken

Introduction

Makes 8 cups Makes 8 cups
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    6 chicken legs (drumstick back attached)
    BONE IN/SKIN ON (you need the fat/bones for the full rich flavor)

    1 medium onion - chopped
    2 carrots chopped
    1 cup water

    2 tablespoons flour
    1 cup whipping cream (33% milk fat)

    1 bag Catelli Broad Noodles

Directions

Add olive oil to a large heavy pot and fry onion for a few minutes. Add paprika to onions and stir a couple of times.

Add chicken, carrots and 1 cup of water. (Yes, it really only takes 1 cup of water - if you add more water you will lose the flavor.

COVER and simmer for 1 hour. As the chicken simmers it will produce lots of good flavorful juice.

Remove chicken from pot once tender and cooked through.

Put 2 tablespoons of flour in a cup and slowly add whipping cream stirring until smooth. Add a bit of hot chicken juice from pot to the cream mixture and stir before adding to pot (reduces lumps). Mix well. Lightly simmer until thickened.

Chicken can be stripped from the bones and back into the pot if preferred or the chicken can be served beside the noodles.

Cook noodles in a large pot of boiling salted water. Spoon chicken mixture over noodles and serve.

Serving Size: Makes 8 - 1 cup servings
