This is a fantastic base recipe. I didn't have chicken broth, but I did have 2 leftover chicken frames in the freezer, so I covered those with water & let cook for about 1/2 an hour. Out they came... I measured 13 c of broth... close enough to the recipe...& took the meat off the bones. Chicken & broth out of one step! YAY! The rest of the recipe I followed from there including the amount of salt suggested (no salt when cooking down the bones). I doubled the noodles after I added the first batch to the broth...I think there should have been more... but mine were whole wheat, so that might have been the issue... and added 1/2 c carrots to the vegs when I started them to cook because I thought that would look nice. The only thing I didn't do was mix in the cornstarch... the noodles were going to be sitting awhile in the soup on the stove & I figured they would give off enough starch to thicken the broth. It is simmering on the stove right now & the house smells heavenly. As an aside, once the WW noodles have been sitting in the broth, they have expanded greatly... so I probably could have done without the extra noodles!
