Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

3 eggs
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lard, melted and cooled
2 to 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 scant teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 onions, chopped
3 carrots, quartered and sliced
3 ribs celery, sliced
1 chicken, cut into pieces, fat not removed (6 to 7 pounds)
2 quarts (8 cups) chicken broth
4 cups cold water, more or less as needed
4 sprigs fresh parsley
3 sprigs fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper, to taste

To make noodles, combine eggs, water and milk in large bowl. Beat well with electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute. Add salt and lard, and beat well.

In medium bowl, whisk 2 cups flour with baking powder. Gradually beat into egg mixture on low speed. With rubber spatula, stir in more flour, up to 1/4 cup if needed, to make stiff dough.

Turn dough onto floured board and knead into ball. Sprinkle additional flour on board and roll out dough to 1/16-inch thick. Using pizza wheel, slice dough into strips 1⁄4-inch wide, then slice again in half crosswise. Transfer noodles to wire rack and cover loosely with lint-free cloth. Let dry for 2 hours.
