*Notes. I did not have regular noodles I used little round ones I bought for making Brandon home made spaghettiO's.
* If your water boils down too much you can use the 2 cups of premade chicken stock to add more broth back into your soup.
*If you don't have an hour to boil the chicken, you can start this recipe with 5 cups of low sodium chicken broth and used pre cooked shredded chicken, making this meal in about 30 minutes.
