On a cool rainy fall day, or if you're not feeling up to par, there's nothing quite like some homemade chicken and noodle soup. A little while back, my brother-in-law had some extra of this soup and my boys just loved it. It has a rich broth and fat soft noodles. I was so glad he shared the recipe with me so I can make my own. This is also a great way to use up some of those turkey leftovers we'll be having soon.

Remove skin and bones from a rotisserie chicken. Add 3-1/2 cups cooked chicken to soup. Bring back to simmer, turn off and let sit.
