Directions

  2. For noodles, in a small bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the center. Beat egg substitute and milk; pour into well. Stir together, forming a dough. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Roll into a very thin rectangle. Dust top of dough with flour. Roll up jelly-roll style. Cut into 1/4-in. strips.

  4. Bring broth to a boil. Add noodles slowly; cook for 2-5 minutes or until tender. Add chicken; heat though. Garnish with chives and parsley if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

The noodles are wonderful. I used a real egg as I'm not a fan of "artificial" food, but I suppose the taste was the same. They were tender and my whole family loved them.
