Monica's Skinny Soup

In the cold Months I love me some soup & for some odd reason when I eat the soup I tend to see more Weight Loss? Not sure why but.. Here is Monica's Skinny Soup :)

*Disclaimer* I'm not a Chef... So this is good to me, I really hope you Enjoy it too :) If for whatever reason you don't enjoy this soup I'm really sorry You tried it :( lol

2 Boxes Low Sodium Chicken Broth ( I always look for the LOWEST sodium Possible)
5 Large Carrots
1/2 White Onion ( or your choice of onion)
Basil/Summer Savory ( or whatever spices you like in your soups)
2 Boneless chicken breast
2 Cups  Alphabet  Noodles *You can use any type of noodle I like the Alphabet because they are smaller)
(If you enjoy your soup More liquidity then Hearty, I'd suggest 1 Cup.. I like my soup a little more Hearty :)
How 2:
1. Boil Chicken in separate pot,
2. Boil Noodles In Separate pot as well ( Don't Fully cook them.. I only cooked them for about 5 mins.. Till they are half way cooked about.)
3 While Chicken & Noodles  are cooking, Chop Carrots,Onions.. You can chop to whatever desire size I like my onions diced small, While my carrots Bigger
4.Pour 2 Boxes of Chicken Broth in big pot add spices *I eye it.. A Pinch of Summer Savory, few dashes of  Basil
5.Add your Veggies *You Can Add Other Veggies as well, This is just all I had on hand
6. Start to Cook, I like to cook mine on low heat because I usually have lots of time.. But if your in a hurry, You can Boil this faster if you would like!

7. Check on your Chicken.. Once its fully cooked take out of water.. Let cool, then Shred, chop whatever you prefer, I prefer to shred  my chicken.

8. Once your Carrots are pretty well cooked, Add Chicken & Noodles
9. Cooking time depends, however I'd Say about 20-30 Mins It should be all ready to go :)

I can get about 8 Servings out of this.. (Sometimes more) 1 cup servings.

Chopped Carrots & Onions

                                                2 Boxes Chicken Broth with Basil & Pinch Of summer Savory

                                          Add Veggie's If you feel you want more add more :) I don't really have exact Numbers as I usually just eye it :)

                                            Carrots are just about cooked, Time to add the Chicken!

                                                              Don't forget the Noodles!!

Volia! You Got A great bowl of soup :) Add A warm Slice of Bread  if you'd like, I tend to just have the bowl of soup :)
