Das Dutchman Essenhaus is a restaurant in Middlebury, Indiana serving up Amish style meals. It’s a favorite in my family! If you’re unable to stop by, check out the website and have the noodles shipped to your front door! Nothing says comfort food like chicken & noodles!
16 oz Essenhaus homestyle noodles (I prefer “wide”)
29 oz Essenhaus canned chicken
Essenhaus chicken base ( to taste)
Bring 3 1/2 quarts of water to a boil. As water warms, stir in small amounts of chicken base. Be sure to taste as you go, the base is salty and a little goes a long way. When liquid is brought to a boil, add in noodles and return to boil. Lower heat and simmer until desired tenderness (12-20 minutes). Add in chicken. Heat and stir until chicken begins to fall apart. Serve over mashed potatoes, add some green beans and you’ve got yourself one delightful little comfort meal!
Don’t forget to add love, it makes all the difference!
