Lokshin Kugel (Noodle Pudding)

This is a side dish commonly served with roasted chicken for Friday night (Shabbat) dinner. It doesn’t have to accompany chicken only, but, as my mother once told us, when she was a child, chicken and noodles were more affordable than other foods. This is a great accompaniment to any meat.

1 (12 ounce) package thin egg noodles
