- Carrots, as many as ya like
- 3-4 Garlic Cloves (more if ya like)

- a little Salt & Pepper
- About a tablespoon of Vegetable or Olive Oil.
Oh, and get some fresh bread. It goes great with big, soft hunks of fresh bread!
Here’s What Ya Do:
Chop up or shred yer chicken to the size pieces you like best.
Chop up yer onion, carrots, celery and crush yer garlic. Ya can also use that already chopped garlic that comes in jars.
Put yer stew pot on the stove over medium heat and pour in your splash of oil.
Toss in yer onion, celery, carrots and garlic and sauté until the about 5 to 7 minutes. Make sure to stir the stuff along the way a few times.
Pour in your chicken and vegetable broth. Add a few shakes of your dried rosemary, smoked paprika, and salt and pepper to taste.
Heat’er up to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for as long as ya got. Like ten minutes or so.
Toss in yer noodles, maybe half the package or so, that’s up to you. If you toss in the whole pack and find ya need more liquid, ya can add some more broth if ya have any or some water.
Bring it all back to a boil and cook for as long as the noodle package says. What’s that 9 -11 minutes? (I shy to the lesser number)
Once the noodle are done, reduce the heat to way down low and toss in your chicken. Stir it up good.
Once your chicken is heated through, there ya go!! Delicious bowls of hearty & hardy Chicken Noodle Soup! And if ya have any soup left over, it done taste fantastic the next day! And look at that… TWO MEALS!
