Chicken Soup for the Soul *Lauren Perry*

There is nothing like a good chicken soup! When it's cold outside, when you are under the weather, when you need a little pick me up...chicken soup!

2 quarts chicken broth or stock (I use low fat or low sodium)
2 large carrots, slice and chop in half
2 large celery
1/2 large white onion
1 rotisserie chicken, shred
8 ounces of egg noodle
garlic salt to taste
pepper to taste
onion powder, to taste
1 bay leaf
a bunch of fresh parsley chopped
1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
1/2 tsp lemon juice (or less... just enough for a little kick)

1 tbs sugar

throw veggies in pot and cook on med/low with either 1 TBS butter or a little chicken broth, until the veggies are tender (5-10 minutes)

add broth, parsley, noodles- bring to boil

add shredded chicken and cheese


move to low heat/simmer for about 30-40 minutes
