"I can make this an all-day thing, but the results are a very tasty soup. I usually stop at the point where I have my chicken pulled and store it in the fridge for a while, and add it later when I cook the noodles. This is pretty much my own recipe, so feel free to adjust anyway you like.(I gave some to my Dad not long ago, and he said he liked it better than my Mom's. High praise!)A final note: I tend to always end up with a huge pot of soup of any kind - they "grow" on me throughout the process!"

"This was Wonderfull, the whole family Loved it!!! I was told that this will be the Chicken Noodle soup I make from now on!"
"This just became my new chicken soup recipe. The directions are easy to follow and the taste of the soup is wonderful. Everyone kept going back for more. This recipe makes a lot (another reason to give it five stars)so we'll be enjoying it again today. Thanks!"
"Wow, I made some really terrific chicken noodle soup today!! We had some great soup at a restaurant 3 days ago and I went on a mission to find a great chicken soup to do at home and I found it on the first try! I cooked the chicken with the seasonings and boullion cubes yesterday, removed the chicken, cut it up, chilled the chicken and broth overnight. Today I removed the fat from the broth, brought it to a boil, added the vegetables and cooked them for a bit, then added the noodle and chicken. It was wonderful, better than the soup we had at the restaurant! The broth has that nice yellow color and the flavor is so rich! My husband has the 'warm fuzzies' and is crashed on the couch. Thanks so much MEP, we loved this, my search is over and I'll always do this recipe! PS: this makes a lot - BONUS!"
"A wonderful recipe. The only thing I did different was to use chicken leg quarters for my meat as I find it not only is less expensive ( 10 # is $5.90 at Wall-mart) but more flavorful than chicken breasts. I also made only 1/2 the recipe as I am a household of one. I boiled the entire 10 pounds with the veggies stated in this recipe but a larger quanity. That gave me an enormous amount of broth which I refrigerated over night. That made it easy to remove the fat that had hardened on top. Next time I make this I have all the ingredients ready in the freezer for a quick meal. I used the extra chicken to make chicken salad, a casserole and a few sandwiches. Thanks for this delicious recipe !!!"
"This is amazing! My husband said it's as fine a chicken soup as he's ever had. I followed Hey Jude's review below and cooked the chicken with herbs and bullion the night before. I put fresh rosemary and thyme in cheesecloth and cooked with the chicken. Used 6 cups store-bought chicken broth, 14 c. water, and 6 bullion cubes. Needs more veggies, so next time I'll double the amounts of celery and carrots. Delicious!!!"
"This soup was awesome!!!! First time attempting to make it. It turned out great. Taste just like what my mom use to make. Will be using this recipe over and over again!!! Thanks for sharing it!!!"
"This just tastes like my grandma's chicken soup, true chicken soup for the soul!!! I usually add some mushrooms at the end with the noodles. Great recipe for anyone with a cold or the flu, light to digest and very comforting, add extra pepper to clear those sinuses ;o) Thanks for posting, Hep Mep."
"Absolutely LOVE this recipe! I have made this multiple times, and it is fabulous! I use a whole chicken (around 4 lbs.) instead of the breast halves and it works out perfectly."
"I saved this about a month ago, and finally got around to making it yesterday. It is good! Homemade soup rules and this one is perfect. Great flavour, just a perfect feel better meal with a nice slice of homemade bread. Thanks Mep! When I make it I will think of you. BB"
"Very good. I used my pressure cooker to cook all the ingredients except the noodles. It was delish. Thanks!"
"this is a great recipe and very tasty! loved it... and so did my kids, that's a major plus!@!"
"What yummy pot of soup this makes. I used leftover chicken, and it was easy and delicious. Whole family ate it, even the boys, so that says a lot. It was perfect for a nice chilly Fall day. Thanks for posting."
"A Keeper in my book!!! Thanks for the great soup receipe MEP... cooked it just like you say and it's a family hit... even the sick child ate it :D. Thanks again."
