In a Dutch oven, bring chicken and water to a boil over high heat. Add carrots, celery, onions, parsley sprigs, bay leaves, salt, and black pepper. Return the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 1 hour, or until the chicken is no longer pink inside and the vegetables are tender. Remove and discard the bay leaves and parsley sprigs. Remove the chicken from the soup. Skim the fat from the top of the soup with a large spoon. Remove and discard the chicken skin. Remove the meat from the bones. Cut the chicken meat into 1-inch pieces and return the soup. Add noodles and return the soup to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook 5 minutes, or until the noodles are tender. Yield: 4 Servings

  • Ok for those of you trying to print by highlighting the receipe. If you want to print a receipe to include the picture of the dish you need to highlight it by starting at the bottm of the receipe and going up with your highlight. This will remove all adds but give you a nice copy of the receipe to include any picture that might be on it. I noticed when you just hit the print button you get a nice copy but no picture, I like the pictures myself.

  • Recipe sounds good but I find cooking the noodles separate works better. When I cook them in with the soup, it makes the soup too thick.

  • Phooie, if you click on the printer icon that is on the recipe, you will only get a printout of the recipe. If you click on your browser's printer icon then you will get all the junk. Good Luck.
