And Finally Chicken Noodle Soup

This last M.B.A.H."cooking class" was my youngest's pick, Chicken Noodle Soup. I thought it was an easy fun pick, but the chefs thought it involved too much chopping (and they have really grown to hate chopping the onions. They try to shove the job off on to the other). But I thought it was a good way to show them how they could make a soup how ever they liked, with the kinds of veggies they preferred. And it doesn't take much skill, just some time.
Here is what we concocted for our Chicken Noodle Soup 
1 large chicken breast
4 or more tbsp. chicken soup base
the tops of 2 bundles of celery (saved from leftover celery sticks), chopped
1 carrot, peeled and chopped
2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups green beans
2 cups of any pasta (we used a mixture of bow tie,
or as the little one calls them moustaches, and spiral)
1 onion chopped
big pinch of oregano
big pinch of thyme
a bunch of dashes of lemon pepper
and celery salt each
 Put the chicken breast in a big soup pot and cover with water. Boil until cooked through. Remove from the water, but don't dump the water. Once the chicken is cooled, cut it up, put back in the pot along with all the other ingredients. And add about 4 cups of water.
 Good healthy soup guys, you worked well together on this.
