This is a good recipe to start with when you can't remember how to make chicken soup! This is fairly close to what my mom and aunt use to make when I was growing up. I did not use the chicken noodle soup mix and I boiled the chicken with the celery and carrots and onions first. Spices should be used to taste too. After straining the broth when the chicken was cooked, I added additional carrots to the broth and simmered until the carrots were cooked. I personally like more carrots in my soup. I used orzo as the pasta. Do not put the pasta into the soup, it will absorb too much of the broth. I cook the pasta (your choice) and then put it into individual soup bowls and then add the soup into each bowl. Store leftover pasta separately from your soup. I love the Orzo or Asini De Pepe pasta with chicken soup instead of the larger types of pasta that can be used. Turned out really good! Nothing like chicken soup on a cold rainy day.
