Memories of Grandma’s kitchen might come back when you make this golden chicken on a bed of homey egg noodles.

Updated January 31, 2010

Ingredients

  • 3
    cups uncooked egg noodles (6 oz)
  • 1
    tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1
    package (20 oz) boneless skinless chicken thighs (5 or 6 thighs)
  • 2
    slices uncooked bacon, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1
    medium onion, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
  • 2
    cups ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots
  • 1/2
    cup honey
  • 1/4
    cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2
    teaspoon dried thyme leaves

Steps

  • 1
    Cook and drain noodles as directed on package.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken, bacon, onion and carrots. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally and turning chicken once, until chicken is browned.
  • 3
    Stir in honey, vinegar and thyme. Reduce heat to medium. Cover; cook 5 minutes. Uncover; cook 5 to 8 minutes longer, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender and juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (180°F). Serve over noodles.

  • For more tender carrots, cut the baby carrots in half lengthwise.
  • Spaetzle dumplings are a nice substitute for the noodles. Look for packages of dried spaetzle near the noodles in your supermarket.
