If your noodles are homemade, the flour on them will thicken your soup. If not homemade, you could thicken with flour or cornstarch (mixed into cold water).

Once you take the fat off,put in a chicken cube,some fresh rosemary,salt and pepper,i put in carrots,sliced onion,garlic,whatever veggies you like,red kidney beans,black beans,white kidney beans.Cook your noodles or rice,or pasta in a different pot and add it to your bowl first,then add your soup,if you cook your noodles,in the soup,they swell up if you have leftovers,and it gets yukky.

Noodles helpt to thicken the soup. I am not a fan of cornstarch since it tends to give liguids a jello-like consistency when cooled. Cooking down the chicken bones will also release geltin which helps to thicken the soup. That is the main difference between broth and stock, one uses bones, while the other does not.
