Chicken Noodle Soup

(fast easy version, when you yourself are sick and don't feel like a huge production.lolol)

3-4 boneless chicken breasts,
1 celery stick, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp garlic, minced
2 cups frozen mixed veggies (carrots, greenbeans, lima beans, corn, peas)
2 carrots, chopped
2 small potatoes, diced
3 chicken bouillion cubes
in a pot full of water.

Boil until chicken is done, then take out chicken and chop up. Add it back to the pot.

Add seasonings. I like a liberal sprinkling of Natures Seasonings and about 2 tsp salt.

Now, add your noodles, I like No Yolks brand and I add half a bag. If you are going to add dumplings, add those now also. I just use Bisquick most days for dumplings but Whole Foods for the Whole Family has a good recipe for homemade ones. Boil uncovered for 10 minutes. If no dumplings, then it's done! If you have dumplings, cover for 10 more minutes and then it's done. The soup will turn creamy with the addition of noodles and look like you added cream of something but really no milk was added. It's very good!
