Ingredients

    3 whole chicken legs (drum-stick- thigh pieces) (about 2lb total), skinned

    3 cups water

    2 whole bay leaves

    1 tsp dried thyme, crushed

    1 tsp salt

    1/4 tsp pepper

    2 cups carrot, sliced

    1 1/2 cups onion, chopped

    1 cup celery, sliced

    3 cups "No Yolks" wide egg noodles (6 oz)

    1 cup frozen peas, loose pack

    2 cups non-fat milk

    3 tbsp flour, all purpose

Directions

1. In 4 1/2 quart Dutch oven, combine chicken, water, bay leaves, thyme, 1/2 tsp salt, and the pepper. Add carrot, onion, and celery. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 20 to 30 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Discard bay leaves. Reserving broth mixture, remove chicken from Dutch oven; cool chicken slightly. Remove meat from bones; discard bones. Chop meat and set aside.

2. Bring broth mixture to boiling. Add noodles; cook for 5 minutes. Stir in frozen peas, 1 1/2 cups of the milk and remaining 1/2 tsp of salt.

3. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 1/2 cup milk and flour; stir into the noodle mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbley. Stir in chopped chicken. Cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes more or until heated through.
