“My aunt made these the entire time I was growing up. She was my hero when it came to cooking. I have literally spent my entire life trying to match them. I finally figured it out the other day so I'm posting it here so I don't forget how I did it. I hope you all enjoy them as much as our family has over the years.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the stock:.
  2. In a large stockpot, place chicken thighs in water. Leave about a 2-3 inch space from top of the pan.
  3. Add bouillon cubes.
  4. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to medium.
  5. Allow chicken to cook throughly.
  6. When it's done, remove chicken from stock and pull the meat off the bone discarding skin and bones.
  7. Strain broth.
  8. You can refrigerate the broth if you need to.
  9. For the noodles:.
  10. In a large bowl combine eggs and flour.
  11. When dough is ready, roll out on a floured surface to desired thickness. Remember that these will expand when you cook them so you want them to be pretty thin when rolling.
  12. When rolled, use a pizza cutter to cut out 1/4 to 1/2 inch strips the length of the dough.
  13. Once you have them cut length wise, cut them width wise to make normal noodle length.
  14. *NOTE: You don't want this dough to be wet. You want to add enough flour that it's pliable and easy to roll out. I can't give you an exact amount because it changes each time I make the noodles.
  15. *Note 2: Make sure that the noodles stay covered pretty well in flour when cutting or they will stick together.
  16. Putting it all together:.
  17. Bring broth back to a boil.
  18. Add noodles, reduce heat to medium and cook until al dente.
  19. Add 1 heaping tsp cornstarch to a bit of water and mix until cornstarch is dissolved. Add this mixture to your noodles and stir well.
  20. Add the extra bouillon cubes and stir well.
  21. Let cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  22. If desired thickness is not reached yet, repeat the cornstarch until you reach it.
