Introduction

This recipe can be halved, for 5 servings. As listed is 10 servings, of modest size. I would not consider this "diet" food, but good comfort food.

Also note, this is best when you have leftover chicken, or it's just too much prep for one evening (in my opinion). I typically cook both the chicken and egg noodles the day before.
