There is nothing more soul satisfying or heartwarming than homemade chicken noodle soup. If you don't have homemade chicken stock the trick is to simmer with fresh vegetables - and that is what this recipe does- it fortifies the stock with flavor.

1 quart chicken stock
1 small onion, diced, divided
1 carrot, peeled, diced, divided
1 stalk celery, diced, divided
1 parsnip, peeled, diced, divided
1/4 pound egg noodles

3. After 30 minutes remove the chicken and strain the broth. Discard cooked vegetables. Return broth to the pot and taste - add salt and pepper as needed.
