Crock Pot Chicken Soup

As the weather becomes cooler, sore throats and colds often are a side effect. This recipe is a good one because #1. it is a great "penicillin" to those symptoms, but (#2) it is also easy because it uses a crock pot. I love the crock pot..... The magic that happens as the day progresses from putting in ingredients to finding a great pot of food waiting at the end of the day. My sister in law, Gin, shared this one with me. It's great for blustery days, like we had this past weekend.


Ingredients:
2 packs of boneless chicken breast
1 pack of 6 regular size chicken legs.
1 & 1/2 box of the wal-mart value brand Fettuccine noodles
3 tblsp of Seasoning salt.
2 can of regular chicken broth
3 large carrots, cut into 1/2 inch slices
4 celery stalks, chopped
1 large onion, diced
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1 Tbsp. parsley
Regular salt season to taste preference.

Place chicken In a large 2 quart boiler and cover chicken with water. Use about 3 tablespoons of seasoning salt an Boil chicken all together for about 30 min. on the stove top. When done try to skimp of any fat residue that floats to the top. After boiled remove chicken from pot a de-skin the cooked chicken legs. De-bone chicken legs and slice up remaining breast and place the all chicken into the crock pot. Pour the remaining water from the boiler the chicken was cooked in into the crock pot and add water if need be. Season generously with regular salt and simmer over night. About 1& 1/2 hours before you serve prepare the Fettuccine noodles on the stove according the directions on the box. Drain noodles and add to the crook pot and your done. Check occasionally for taste and add salt and water to preference. Enjoy!
