Buttered Noodles cooked in butter and chicken broth for extra flavor.

 

These Buttered Noodles are positively addicting. Cooked in chicken broth and butter with a bouillon cube and garlic powder, they soak up so much delicious, salty flavor.

The key to really getting flavorful noodles is to not use any water and to cook them in as little liquid as possible. So little liquid that it’s not even necessary to drain them.

In order to get them to cook evenly, you need to cook them in a large nonstick pan and stir frequently because they won’t be completely submerged in liquid.

These Buttered Noodles are on the salty side which is one of the things I find so appealing about them.

If you’re worried they will be too salty, use either low-sodium broth or a low-sodium bouillon cube.

They have plenty of flavor as is, but if you want to, sprinkle them with a little chopped parsley and grated Parmesan cheese.

Instructions
  1. Combine broth, water, bouillon cube, and half the stick of butter in a large nonstick skillet. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add noodles and cook, stirring frequently for about 8 minutes. (Note: Turn the heat down so the liquid does not boil vigorously and evaporate too quickly. Add more water if necessary.

The finished noodles will be fairly salty. If you want them less salty, use reduced sodium broth or a reduced sodium bouillon cube.

  1. Made these as a side dish with Barbecued Pork. Sorry to say, but these were bland and tasteless. None of my family liked the noodles and we are pasta lovers. Maybe some additional ingredients may be required to give it a big lift, but these were not for us. Thanks for the recipe anyway as I love to try new things.

    1. Aww…really? I was gonna make them with my tilapia for dinner tomorrow. I figured they would be full of flavor because of all the ingredients it calls for. Looks like I will stick to white rice..
