Chicken Noodle Soup

Another soup for you today! You know how I feel about using what I already have on hand. That's no different with this soup... other than the fact that I usually use one of those pre-made rotisserie chickens. If you want to go to the trouble of cooking up a bunch of chicken then by all means, go for it. But.... this is a lazy meal for me. :)

2 boxes of chicken stock
1 medium to large onion, diced
3 small potatoes, diced
4 medium carrots, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
3 cloves garlic, finely diced
1 whole rotisserie chicken, meat pulled off bones in small shreds
1/2 pkg egg noodles
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/8 tsp dried marjoram
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large stock pot sautee garlic, onion and spices in olive oil. Leave out the salt for now if you're using a prepared chicken, you don't want to have it be too salty. Add in your carrots, celery, potatoes, and chicken. Add in all your stock, and any water needed to cover your ingredients. Simmer for 30 - 40 minutes until your vegetables are tender. If using noodles add these in and cook according to package directions. You can make this with homemade noodles if you'd like. You can also add in a few tablespoons of cornstarch if you'd like a slightly thicker soup. Enjoy!
