Chicken and Noodles

This recipe is one that I have been making ever since I got married. And before I got married my mom made it for us when we were growing up. It is a simple comfort food that is wonderful for cold days or for those days when you don't feel so well.

2-3 Chicken Breasts (bone in, skin on- provides the most flavor & will be removed later on)
1 stick of butter
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 bag dumpling style noodles or extra wide egg noodles
Salt & pepper to taste

Place chicken breast in a large pot & fill with water (lots of water). Place on stove & allow to boil until chicken is done. Remove chicken from pot & skim the stock to remove the debris that is created from boiling chicken. If there is not enough water left in the pot to cook a full bag of noodles you can add chicken stock. Bring stock to boil. Add butter, soups, salt & pepper. Mix until the soup has dissolved. Add noddles & cook until tender. Meanwhile remove skin from chicken & de-bone. Chicken should be in bite size chunks or shreds. Once noodles are done, add chicken back to pot. Turn off heat, cover & allow to sit for 10 minutes. Serve with fresh bread and a salad. It's even better the next day!
