Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

This is my dad's recipe. He is the king at making this soup! It is the best and we always look forward to fall and winter because we eat this a lot and can never seem to get enough! It's pretty easy and makes your house smell amazing! This recipe makes a ton of soup (enough for 6 people and plenty of leftovers) so plan accordingly. Also, my dad just sort of dumps things in so there aren't measurements...he just does everything to taste.Ingredients:

2 whole chickens (make sure you remove all the guts before you boil them)
3 large onions, cut in large chunks
1 bag carrots, peeled and sliced
2 cartons of sliced mushrooms
1 bag celery, sliced
2 bags of rice
8 oz. bag of no yolk noodles
salt, a lot
pepper, a lot
dill weed, a lot
onion powder, some
herbs de provance, a little


- Put each chicken in its own pot covering it with water. Add 1/2 of an onion, a little dill, lots of salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, boil for 45 minutes to an hour.
- Remove chickens from water and de-bone.
- Return chicken to water and add all your veggies.
- Add more of all the seasonings, cover it and let it simmer for 1 hour (the longer you let it simmer the better it tastes)
- If some of your liquid has evaporated add a little chicken stock.
- 10 minutes before you are ready to eat add the noodles and the rice and bring back up to a boil. - Check the seasonings and adjust before serving.
