Chicken Noodle Soup is good for the soul(and the sick)

I was yucky sick this past week and where generally I'm not above eating some Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup with Stars, this time I wanted chicken noodle soup like momma used to make.

Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup.

-2 chicken breasts, pulled and shredded from a store bought rotisserie chicken, skin removed
-8 cups of water
-8 tsp of chicken bouillon granules
-2 carrots, finely chopped
-2 celery stalks, finely chopped
-1/2 an onion, finely chopped
-1 tsp of garlic
-1 tsp of dill
-1 tsp of parsley
-1/2 tsp of black pepper
-3 cups of egg noodles

Put water and bouillon in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil and stir until bouillon is dissolved. Reduce to a simmer and add everything except noodles. Simmer for 20 minutes. Return to a boil, add noodles, reduce to simmer and cook 15 minutes.

This soup made me smile.
