Bring to a boil then simmer 1 hr


Remove Chicken and bones or fat globs


Taste add more Chicken bullion if needed


Add about 1/2 bag of noodles (Amount varies by amount of broth DON'T ADD TOO MANY!!! or your soup will be paste)


Add Carrots


Simmer 'bout 3 more mins then shut off heat


Let sit 'till noodles are done (Turning off heat helps noodles not to turn mushy stir lightly too)


*Options: Can add some minced garlic in bottom of your bowl/cup before adding soup for added health benefits.

Notes

My mother's version of a 'Get you well' Chicken soup.

Bone soups are very good for you and chicken soups are still used as medicine in many households including ours! Both this version and my Great Grandmother's version 'Linda Williamson's Chicken Soup' are very good for colds and flu! It even helps sick animals by the dropperful :)
