Wow - this really does taste just like what my mom used to make! I cooked the chicken for 2 hours at which point the meat was falling off the bones, so I stopped then. It took a lot longer tha...

Good but not great. And overly complicated. If you're making stock, why the bouillon? (Or vice versa.) 4 hours is *FOREVER* to simmer chicken. It'll be done in less than one. It adds salt twice ...

Super flavorful and super yummy. I would omit that last tsp of salt and maybe just salt to taste next time. I also just used chicken thighs, as I hate the thought of cutting up a chicken. And...

So I know exactly what to do next time: Cook egg noodles in the pot, rinse, put away till you need them. In same soup pot,cook approx 8 chicken thighs (after removing skin) in water - bring to ...
