    LOL..Ivy....I've been trying to duplicate the look, texture, and taste of a certain departed lady's chicken and noodles for a couple of decades. I finally got the secret, by chance as it were. Her daughter and I were talking one day about a year ago as she didn't know how her mother's chicken and noodles was always "tastier" then hers, either. We both made hand-made egg noodles from scratch, just as we had watched them made. We had watched the dear woman make this dish many times, there just wasn't any "secret" ingredient.

    The only difference was that the original was made with home-grown chickens while we were buying them at the grocery. We got to discussing that when it dawned on my friend that her mother always picked the fattest hen to be the "guest of honor". That turned out to be the secret and in today's markets it is sometimes very difficult to get a fat chicken. They are bred to be heavy breasted but muscular, not fat.

  • Oh, Mrs. Ivy how I remember those delicious homemade chicken and noodles when we were kids. She sure was a very special lady. I miss the times on the front porch or sitting at the table with her while she was cooking. Boy to go back to the good ole days!!
