I have two sick males in my house and you all know how that can be! The weather is bitter cold outside, so it is a good day for chicken soup. Maybe it will make all of us feel better.



2 1/2 qt. (10 c.) water

3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 sprigs fresh parsley
2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 c. sliced carrots
2 c. sliced celery
1 med. onion, chopped
1/8 tsp. pepper
8 oz. (about 4 c.) wide egg noodles
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley

In large pot, combine water, chicken, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt and parsley sprigs. Heat to boiling, cover and reduce heat and simmer for 30 t0 40 min. or until chicken is tender.

Remove chicken, add bouillon cubes and heat to boiling. Add carrots, celery, onion, pepper and 1 teaspoon salt. Cover and cook about 5 minutes.

Gradually add noodles so that the soup continues to boil. Cook, uncovered until noodles are tender. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Add this to the broth with 1/4 cup parsley. Heat about 5 minutes.
