Old School Egg Noodles with Chicken

Do 3 ingredients count as a recipe? This Egg Noodles with Chicken pasta is so simple, quick and surprisingly tasty! The only thing that needs cookin’ are the noodles. Its works great as a to-go lunch because it’s just as good chilled. I make this when I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to cook.
Ingredients for Egg Noodles with Chicken:
16 oz Wide Egg Noodles
1 (12.5 oz) can White Meat Chicken
3/4 cup Real Mayonnaise
How to Make Egg Noodles With Chicken and Mayo:
1. Boil the egg noodles in salted water until al dente (cook according to instructions on package). Drain and rinse with cold water.
2. Drain the can of chicken and combine with 3/4 cup mayo in a small bowl, breaking the chicken into small pieces.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the noodles and chicken mixture until the noodles are coated.
Pasta will continue “cooking” until it’s rinsed with cold water.
You can use 1/2 cup of mayo to cut the fat; it just tastes better with the 3/4 cup.

I love this stuff. My mom use to make it for me when I was little. We add peas though. My husband and kids aren’t fans though. Just means more for me! 🙂
Aww! I love when recipes bring back great memories like this! I’m glad you enjoyed it, Cherri!
Thanks so much for sharing these wonderful recipes.
You are welcome Harriet, I hope you’ll find many new favorites on the site :).
The kids loved those. Even hubby did! Was lazy to cook dinner, so decided to cook this, but ended up with much better than I thought! Natasha, you never let me fail!
Thank you Inna for the great review :). I’m glad to hear that everyone enjoyed it.
I was looking for a quick lunch idea, and saw this. So easy and simple, yet good. Tastes even better the next day…just like tushenka 😉
Oooh that’s true; it is good on the skillet the next day; the pasta gets crisp and so does the chicken. Mmmmm. 🙂
Do you think that canned tuna will work fine instead of white chicken? What are your thoughts on that substitution?
Yes, I’ve made it with tuna when I was out of chicken. Still very good 🙂
amazing! made this for my boys and they loved it! (and they are pretty picky) thanks hun for such great recipes! Love following you on Instagram as well!
Allie what is your instagram screen name? P.S. so glad your boys loved it. Easy huh? 🙂
Natasha, thank you for the recipe. Made it a few times. Everyone in my family loved it! so easy but so delicious!
Thank you 🙂
Add fresh shredded carrots and finely chopped celery for a fantastic pasta salad. It’s one of those dishes that I can actually get vegetables into my 3 year old.
So easy and so delicious!!!
made it few times, we love it, it’s like макароны по флотски
Easy and good – thats my kind of recipe
Egg noodles have a really good flavour to them! I’ll often throw some in with frozen peas and then eat it drenched in butter! 🙂
