Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup - A Tradition

Whenever anyone is sick in our home, I make this traditional soup just like grandma used to make.  Ironically, the main ingredient is Grandma's Egg Noodles.  Kids and adults love it and it makes getting sick a little more enjoyable.  

2 Packages of Grandma's Egg Noodles (in the freezer section of stores)
1 whole chicken
1 bunch carrots
1 stalk celery
2 onions
3 garlic cloves
4 chicken bouillon cubes

Place raw chicken in a pot.  Cover with water and boil.  While boiling, start chopping your carrots, onion and celery. Crush garlic. Add all vegetables and garlic to boiling water.  When chicken is cooked, pull it out and let cool.  Add 4 bouillon cubes to the broth.  Add the two packages of unfrozen egg noodles.  Be sure to pull apart. Remove the skin from the chicken.  Cut the chicken into bite size pieces (or chunky) and place back in the pot.  Let simmer for 20 minutes until all the noodles are the same consistency.  
Garnish with red pepper flakes, oyster crackers, or black pepper if desired.
