Down With The Sickness Chicken Soup

I feel like crap. Body aches, swollen sinuses, congestion, and a sore throat. And my head's swimming so much that typing is challenging.

Time for soup.

1 rotisserie chicken
1 bag eggless egg noodles
2 1/2 quarts chicken stock (i use free range organic, you should too)
4 cups water
vegetables in the fridge that are too gone for salad but still edible (in my case, one green pepper, one red pepper, one cucumber, and one zucchini)
one pound mixed frozen vegetables
one pound frozen broccoli ends.
lots of garlic.
garlic salt

put on water for noodles
debone chicken.
put chicken stock on to heat. Add garlic and garlic salt, along with vegetables. Cook on high.
Add shredded chicken.

If I were feeling better I'd make this complicated by reducing two half-boxes of stock by half in separate pots by half, and then adding the other half, and then reducing further. Then addding the chicken. And using tortellini instead of egg noodles.

Time to go back to bed.
