Health Highlights


341 gm Egg noodles, unenriched, dry (about 6 cups)
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
454 gm Chicken thighs, boneless, skinless (cut into 1-inch chunks)
2 tbsp Kosher salt
2 tsp Black pepper
6 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 small White onion (diced)
3 medium Carrots (peeled and diced)
1 tsp, ground Thyme, dried
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 tbsp Parsley, fresh (chopped)
3 tbsp Butter, unsalted
1/2 cup All-purpose white flour
2 cup Chicken broth (stock)
1/2 tsp Parsley, dried
1/4 tsp Onion powder
2 medium stalk(s) Celery (diced)


To make the sauce, melt butter in a large saucepan. Add 3 coves of garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1-2 minutes. Gradually whisk in chicken stock, 1/2 thyme, dried parsley and onion powder. Cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce has begun to thicken, about 5 minutes; season with 1 tbsp salt and 1 tsp pepper, to taste. Set aside.

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook egg noodles according to package instructions; drain well.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Season chicken thighs with 1 tbsp salt and 1 tsp pepper, to taste. Add chicken to the stockpot and cook until golden, about 2-3 minutes; set aside.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the stockpot. Add 3 cloves of garlic, onion, carrots and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in thyme until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Stir in egg noodles, sauce and Parmesan until well combined and heated through, about 3-4 minutes.

Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
