Crista's Easy Chicken & Noodles
1 whole chicken
1 onion, quartered
3 celery stalks, chopped
salt & pepper
(any other seasonings you like)
Wide noodles (I like the Amish brands)
Put onions, celery, and chicken in a pot and fill with water (just enough to cover the chicken). Bring to a boil and cook on a high simmer until chicken easily falls off the bone. Strain and reserve the broth. Cook the noodles until tender in the broth. Meanwhile, pick the chicken from the bone. Add chicken back to the noodles and serve over mashed potatoes if desired.
