Chicken Healing Soup

I didn't do anything CRAZY different, in fact mine is pretty basic but OOOOH Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup is SOO amazing, especially now that it's starting to feel fall like! AHHH


Water (enough to fill the pot once the chicken is in)
about 2 1/2-3 lbs of chicken (dark, light, whatever)
some carrots sliced
some celery sliced
a small onion chopped
box of large shells (or pasta of your choice)
about 2tbsp butter
extra organic chicken stock if needed

Put your chicken in a pot and fill with water. Boil until chicken is cooked through. Pull chicken out and place in a bowl and skim off any fat you want off the top. Keep water boiling. Put in veggies (the amount really depends on how much you want in it... I also like to have frozen peas in mine... mom always did that). Once that has had a moment to cook add pasta. Begin shredding chicken from the bones and place the chicken (not the bones) in the pot. Season with the butter and salt and pepper to taste. Wha La! This makes a lot, but the noodles REALLY soak up the broth, so if you want yours more soupy the second time around add in more chicken broth, but don't forget to season more!
