This is a great recipe, but can be made a lot easier with a couple of modifications. I would recommend substituing chicken broth for the water and not use the chicken soup base. Chicken soup base creates a more artificial flavor. Boil the chicken in the chicken broth. Instead of a whole chicken, I cut boneless skinless chicken breasts into pieces. After boiling the chicken in the broth for 1/2 hour, add the other ingredients already chopped (onion, bay leaves, peppercorns, celery, carrots -- I didn't put in the lemon grass) and cook for 1 more hour. Then add the noodles and the celery leaves and cook until the noodles are done. The whole pot can remain heating on the stove on low until your guests arrive. I upped the recipe to serve 30 people and it worked great!
