"This recipe is from my grandma and I have loved it ever since I was a child. I could eat it EVERY day. The homemade noodles are simple, and you can use frozen chicken breast if you don't have time to use a whole chicken."

  1. Place chicken in a stock pot, and add enough water to cover. Pour in the chicken broth, and add celery and onions. Season with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 1 hour to get a good broth.
  2. When the chicken is cooked through and tender, remove it to a platter and let sit until it is cool enough to handle. Strain broth, and discard celery and onions. Return the broth to the stock pot. Remove chicken meat from the bones, chop or tear into pieces, then return it to the pot also. Bring the broth to a boil, and add carrots.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the eggs, water and salt. Gradually add flour until the dough is firm enough to form a ball. You may need more or less flour. Pat the dough out on a flat plate. Using a butter knife, cut slices of dough off the edge of the plate so they are about 2 to 3 inches long. Allow them to fall directly into the boiling broth.
  4. Once the carrots are tender, the soup is ready. Sprinkle with parsley flakes and serve.

I made this recipe with "Grandma's Noodles II" (from this site), and it was AWESOME! I didn't use a whole chicken - I used boneless, skinless breasts. I cut them frozen and cooked them right i...

The best chicken spaetzle ever! Soooo delicious. My father likes the dumplings very hearty, so I added about the dough in 1/2 and added 1/4 to 1/3 a cup of extra flour. Very hearty, but more lik...

After years (I'm serious) this is the very first recipe for spaetzle that exactly matches my mother's (and her's) way of making it! I'm psyched. This recipe is almost identical to the thickened ...

make the broth while you prep the noodles...add the noodles while you finsh the broth... what a great muti-tasking recipe for the modern day women... and great tasting too!

This soup is great. It has a wonderful flavor. I would recommend cutting off any excess fat from the chicken before cooking. I used three cloves of fresh garlic instead of the garlic salt. I...

This soup was very good. I added dill to the soup, and it was awesome. Kid and hubby loved it, too.
