Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

(This was one of the soups at Turin's birthday party)

1 whole chicken

1 whole celery bunch, diced

2-3lbs large carrots, diced

1 small onion, diced

Seasonings (add the following seasonings to 12 cups of water):

2 tsp. Garlic pepper

½ tsp. basil

1 tsp. celery flakes

1 tsp. Lawry’s salt

¼ tsp. Tyme

¼ tsp. Poultry seasoning

¼ tsp. Rosemary

3 bay leaves

12 chicken bouillon cubes

Optional: 4 drops of hot sauce

Optional: Rice or Noodles- I've used homemade noodles and I've used egg noodles and both have tasted great.

Dissolve cubes in water. Add chicken. Boil (a gentle boil) chicken until tender. Remove chicken, set aside and cool. Add diced carrots, celery and onion to broth. Add seasonings. Simmer until tender. While vegetables are simmering, remove chicken from bones. Add meat to broth. Simmer 30min or more. I usually let it simmer for a couple of hours. Add pre-cooked rice or noodles.
