Another good find from Real Simple’s ’10 Ideas for: Chicken Cutlets.’  However, the magazine’s recipe was sans egg noodles.  I tried the original recipe first but my husband and I both felt it was lacking something.  He suggested noodles and I knew just the thing!

Chicken with Creamy Mushrooms main ingredients

I haven’t used egg noodles in dishes as of late.  But growing up, egg noodles were a part of many a homemade dish.  When I made this dish again but with the egg noodles, there was a noticeable improvement.  Egg noodles were definitely that something that was missing.  Such a simple addition can really make a dish!

When a dish feels like it’s missing that something, what simple addition do you try?
