Cover chicken breasts or whole chicken with water, add salt and pepper, simmer until chicken is done. Cool chicken and cut chicken off bones. Strain strained chicken broth and if desired, cool completely to skim off fat (if no time. attempt to skim fat from broth). Add the rest of the ingredients, except noodles. Add more water if needed (should be at least 8 cups of liquid). Bring to boil, add the noodles and cook until noodles are tender (about 25 minutes). Soup should be thick and full of lots of ingredients! Serve with hot yeast rolls and eat with a fork.
