Chicken Noodle Soup

I've been a little under the weather for the past couple days. And by a little I mean a lot. For the past few days I've been completely and utterly miserable. I haven't felt like cooking or doing much of anything. Today I finally started to feel a tad bit better. Well wouldn't you know my husband is starting to feel sick now. Since I was on my own for dinner tonight, I decided I felt up to making us some chicken noodle soup. I made it pretty much the same way I made my chicken and rice soup but added a few more veggies and of course noodles instead of rice. Hopefully a couple bowls of this will have us both feeling better in no time.

Chicken Noodle Soup

2 chicken breasts
5-6 cups water
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 tsp thyme
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1/4 large onion, chopped
1/4-1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 cup frozen peas and carrots
1 1/2-2 cups egg noodles
salt and pepper to taste

Begin by boiling the chicken breasts in a large pot with water and chicken stock. Once the chicken is done, remove from the pot and set aside. Place vegetables, thyme, and chicken bouillon in the pot and simmer for 8-10 min until vegetables start to get tender. Shred the chicken with two forks and return it to the pot. Add the noodles and let simmer about 8 min until the noodles are done. Add more water as needed. Add salt and pepper to taste.
