My mother made the world's best chicken and noodles and I make mine as close to her recipe as I can, given the fact that I can't for the life of me make homemade noodles and that I hate cutting up chicken. So I cheat, but it sure does taste good!

In a 5-qt. Dutch oven, bring chicken broth and 1 broth can of water to a boil over medium heat.
Add the noodles; flake the chicken and add that. Add salt and pepper; mix thoroughly.
Lower the heat and cover pot, letting simmer for 45 minutes. If broth is too thin, leave uncovered and simmer another 10 or 15 minutes. If it's too thick, dilute with more water, cover and heat just until everythng is hot.
Serve over mashed potatoes or, for something different, serve over rice.
