1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 4 pounds), cut up
2 quarts water
1 medium onion, chopped
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
2 celery ribs, diced
2 medium carrots, diced
2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1-½ cups fresh or frozen cut green beans
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon butter, softened
¼ teaspoon baking powder
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
In a Dutch oven, cook chicken in water; cool slightly. Remove chicken from bones; discard bones. Skim fat from broth. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces; add to broth with remaining ingredients except noodles. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 50-60 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Meanwhile, for noodles, place flour in a small bowl and make a well in the center. Stir together remaining ingredients; pour into well. Working the mixture with your hands, form a dough. Knead for 5-6 minutes.
Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. On a floured surface, roll dough out to a square, 1/16 to 1/8 in. thick, and cut into 1/4-in.-wide strips. Cook noodles in boiling salted water for 2-3 minutes or until done. Drain and add to soup just before serving.
Yield: 6 servings.
