Hi. John Morgan here. You might have noticed a lack of posts on our website and social media over the past couple of weeks. On Friday, September 14, my mother, Stella Morgan, passed away after complications following a medical procedure a week earlier.
If you didn’t know my mom, you might think Corena’s Kitchen would be a weird place to share this news. However, for those of you who knew her, this is the perfect place. She loved to cook! During her funeral service, my uncle shared fond memories of family gatherings where mom would cook enough food to feed a small army.
One of mom’s signature dishes that was passed down through our family is homemade chicken noodles. She would fix a five gallon kettle of them for Thanksgiving! However, sometimes when it was just a few people over for dinner, she would fix a crock pot version using Reames brand frozen noodles. This was faster than going to the trouble of making noodles from scratch. In honor of mom, here’s the recipe.
3 Chicken Breasts
2 Cans, Cream of Chicken Soup
1 Box, Chicken Broth
1 Stick of Butter, melted
Pepper, to taste
24 oz, Frozen Reames Egg Noodles
Combine chicken, cream of chicken soup, broth, butter, and pepper in a crock pot. Cook 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low in a crock pot.
Take it out so it can cool. Then cut into pieces.
Put 24 oz of frozen Reames Egg Noodles in the crock pot after removing the chicken.
Add chicken back in.
Continue cooking 1 hour on high or 2 on low. Stirring every 15 minutes away from the sides and bottom.
Add up to 2 more cups of liquid (broth or chicken bouillon) if needed.
