This is a delicious soup that my whole family loved and is great to serve for any event!
My grandma would of used a whole chicken, I use 3 large chicken breast
3 - 5 cups chicken broth (Pacific Naturals is gluten free)
1 large onion diced
3 - 5 celery stalks diced
3 - 5 medium carrots diced
3 cloves minced garlic
1 t Thyme
lt and pepper to taste
1 packageTinkyada lasagna noodles (Tinkyada is not one of my favorite brand of noodles, but they hold up excellently in soups)
salt and pepper to taste
Cover the chicken with water in a large soup pot.
Add the chicken broth, celery, onion, carrots, garlic and spices.
Boil until the chicken is cooked through.
If you are using a whole chicken, remove, debone and place the chicken meat back in the pot. If using chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces and return to the pot.
Add equal amounts of water and chicken broth so that you have enough liquid to boil the noodles - I usually add 2 cups water and 2 cups chicken broth.
Return to a boil - add salt to taste.
Break up the Tinkyada noodles into large pieces and add to the pot. Cook until done (around 15 minutes).
Add more salt as needed and pepper to taste and dig in!!
