  1. In large bowl, stir flour and salt together.  Set aside.

  4. Cover mixing bowl with a kitchen towel or saran wrap and let dough sit for 5 minutes.

  5. Remove dough from mixing bowl and place on floured surface.  With rolling pin, roll dough to ⅛ inch thick.  Using a pizza cutter, cut 2-3 inch noodles.  Make sure the noodles are not touching each other for quicker drying.

  6. Let the noodles sit for at least a half hour, up to 2 hours.  They need to sit, so that they can dry a bit, before going into the soup.


  1. In hot large stock pot or dutch oven, add 3 tablespoons of butter, and cook on medium high until melted.  Add the chopped celery, carrots and onions.  Season with the salt and salute for 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally.

  2. Add the minced garlic and salute for 1 minute.

  3. Add in 10 cups of water and turn the heat up to high.  Add in the 3 tablespoons of chicken base.

  4. Add dried thyme, basil, oregano, and poultry seasoning.  Add the shredded chicken and bones.

  5. When the mixture begins to boil, cover half of the pot, and turn the heat down to medium.  Cook for 10 minutes until the carrots are tender.

  6. Turn the heat to high again.  Once boiling, add in the homemade noodles or 2 cups of egg noodles.  Lower to medium heat, and cook for 6-8 minutes, until the noodles are al dente.

  7. Remove the chicken bones.  Season with salt and pepper.  Garnish with fresh chopped Italian parsley.  Scoop soup into bowls and Enjoy!
