Chicken Noodle Soup

This past month we have had so much sickness at our house.  It keeps passing from one person to the next and rarely overlaps so at any given moment someone has been sick.  This chicken noodle soup is really quick and easy to throw together and it has a lot of flavor and none of the "yucky stuff" that my kids find appalling and saves me time.

Melt three tablespoons of butter in a large pot then add 3 minced garlic cloves and saute for about a minute.

Add six cups of chicken broth or six cups of water with six teaspoons of chicken bouillon.
Add all the spices and the chicken.

Can you see the Oregano hiding behind the bay leaves?
My favorite tip for shredding chicken is to throw it in my mixer and turn it on with the paddle attachment.

Add the elbow noodles and the bay leaf, then bring it to a boil on high heat and then reduce heat. Simmer for twenty minutes.  Then sit down and enjoy!
