Basic Home Made Chicken Noodle Soup

Well Oley complained becuase I didn't make home made noodles to go along with this, but other than that extremely delicious! Especially becuase it's starting to get colder outside. Warning this recipe makes enough for 10. So we have LOTS of leftovers. But it was good so I'll take it!

3 pounds of chicken
4 carrots, halved
4 celery sticks, halved
1 large onion, halved
2 potatoes, halved
water to cover
salt and pepper
1 tsp chicken bouillon

Place the potatoes, carrots, celery and chicken in a large pot and and cover with water. Heat and simmer, uncovered until chicken is cooked.
Take everything out of the pot, and strain the broth. Cut meat, celery, carrots, onion, and potatoes into bite size pieces. Season the broth with salt, pepper, and bouillon to taste. Return everything into the same pot. Stir together, and serve.
