My Not-So-Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

“I can make this an all-day thing, but the results are a very tasty soup. I usually stop at the point where I have my chicken pulled and store it in the fridge for a while, and add it later when I cook the noodles. This is pretty much my own recipe, so feel free to adjust anyway you like.(I gave some to my Dad not long ago, and he said he liked it better than my Mom's. High praise!)A final note: I tend to always end up with a huge pot of soup of any kind - they "grow" on me throughout the process!”
