Our Deaconess Group uses this recipe when cooking for members of our congregation. It makes a huge batch, so it's ideal to freeze portions in microwave-safe containers. Then just thaw and reheat in the microwave for a filling meal. People who try this soup say it's the best they have ever tasted. —Stacey Christensen, West Valley City, Utah

  1. Divide chickens and water between two stockpots. Slowly bring to a boil over low heat. Cover and simmer for 2 hours or until meat is tender, skimming the surface as foam rises. Remove chickens from broth; set aside until cool enough to handle.
  2. Add the celery, carrots, onions, chicken base and parsley to the pots; season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  3. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain. Stir into soup. Remove chicken meat from bones; cut into bite-size pieces. Add to soup; heat through. Yield: 64 servings (1 cup each).
Editor's Note: Look for chicken base near the broth and bouillon.

"Very tasty. Only thing I would do differently is store it without the noodles and fresh cook the noodles at the time I want to serve it. Noodles tend to get mushy and the starch from them changes the broth flavor."
