Buttered Egg Noodles W/Parmesan Chicken.


Good Wednesday everyone!

My family and I love love eating at Noodles & Company. If you guys haven't ever tried their food you are seriously missing out. My sister and I love to order "Buttered Noodles". They are noodles fried in butter, mixed with seasonings, and topped with Parmesan Chicken and Mozzarella Cheese. That and a Coke for dinner....that is real living.

I wanted to try to see if I could come up with something similar to Noodles' version. Let me say I got pretty close! For the breading I mixed up different seasonings, Parmesan Cheese, and salt and pepper. Dipped it then in egg and fried until done. The breaded chicken alone was very good. The family loved this, it was great to see my brother and sister saying..."mmm this is pretty good".

Buttered Noodles: My Version
Ingredients:
2 chicken breasts, thawed
3 cups egg noodles, cooked
2 sticks of butter
3 eggs
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
3/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS:
Cut chicken breasts into strips. Beat eggs in a bowl and set aside. Combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, pepper, salt, and garlic powder. Place 3 tbsp. of butter in pan over stove on low-medium heat. Melt all over pan. Dip chicken in eggs (let excess egg mixture drip off) and then roll in bread crumb mixture. Place in pan and cook for 2 minutes or until done, turning as needed. In another pan, melt 5tbsp. of butter on medium-high heat. Pour the egg noodles into the pan and cook until crisp, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Season with Italian Seasoning and salt and pepper. Mix. Put noodles in bowl and top with chicken and Mozzarella Cheese. Yield: 2 servings.

We did it. We took pictures. It is a big accomplishment because if we don't go get them done, you will never see a decent picture of us 6 together. There will be pictures of us 6. But they don't go past our family seeing them.
The weather was perfect, couldn't have asked for a better day...especially nice since it had been raining the previous days. All I could say was "thank you God....for no rain and a beautiful day to boot".

So, here we are. These 5 (not including our parents) are the ones that devour all of the food you see on my blog. Those 3 boys are the ones who I have to thank. The 2 girls are the ones I have to thank for keeping me somewhat girly. And my youngest brother. Joe. He is perfectly fine. He wasn't being tortured. He doesn't like to smile for the camera. Thus the uncovincing grins.




These are only some of the many pictures we took, would my readers like to see more? Hope you all are enjoying summer weather....looking forward to seeing Star Trek this Friday. Hopefully it will be a good one!

Ok, I know I am slow sometimes, but is this 3 cups of noodles and then you cook them or is it cook enough noodles to make 3 cups?

Showing my ignorance. We're all friends, right? :-)

i read over this recipe several times and it only says to melt 3 table spoons of butter in one pan for the chicken, and then the other 5 tablespoons of butter for the noodles...... so u have a whole stick of butter leftover for nothing, just wanted to let you know :)

I cooked the noodles once and they were too soggy, so I threw them out and cooked some AGAIN... and again, they were too soggy...... then when I put them in the butter they never got crispy-- =( suggestions?

hiqtdoll,

Hmmm...try using less butter and turn the heat on your stove to "high". Make sure your noodles are drained well after cooking then fry them.

hope that helps!!
