This is not your typical chicken soup. It's for those who like a bit of a bite added to the robust flavors. It's great for those with colds and sore throats to eat just as any chicken soup, but the added spicy flavors will have you back up and feeling better in no time!
1In a large saucepan, add 4 cups of water, the chicken breasts and a couple of pinches of salt. Cook on medium heat for about 25 minutes or until chicken meat has no pink tinge to it.
2While chicken is cooking, in large stock pot, pour 2 cups water and chicken broth. Add the vegetables, and all the seasonings and allow to cook over medium heat.
3When chicken is cooked, remove from water and place on cutting board. Using 2 forks, shred the meat and add to the stock pot.
4Let ingredients cook on a mild simmer for 2 hours minimum, up to 6 hours for best flavors. Use the water the chicken was cooked in which is now a homemade chicken stock to add to the pot to keep up level of liquid. 30 minutes before serving, add in egg noodles, stirring to get noodles down into liquid. When noodles are softened, soup is ready to serve.
