Chicken Noodle Soup for Colds

It seems it is time again for all the colds and flus to make their rounds. A couple of my friends are feeling under the weather, so I made this chicken noodle soup last night.

Large Pot
Cutting Board
Large Spoon

8 C. Water
6 Tbl. Chicken base
2 Chicken Breasts
2 Lrg. Carrots, chopped
1 Mdm. Onion, chopped
2 Bell Peppers (red, yellow or orange), Chopped
1 Jalapeno, Diced
3/4 tsp. Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Ground Ginger
1 Tbl. Garlic Powder
6 (about) Whole garlic cloves, peeled
1/4-1/2lb Pasta (depending on how noodly you want it)

In a large pot mix the water and chicken base, when it is reached a simmer, turn the heat down a bit and add the chicken breasts (whole). Cook for about 20 minutes (until cooked through) then remove and set aside.

While the chicken is cooking you can chop up all your vegetables and have them ready.

When chicken has cooked and been removed, add in all your vegetables, garlic and mix in spices. Allow to cook for about 15 minutes and then add in noodles and cook for another 15-20 minutes (until pasta is cooked). Add back your chicken all chopped up and serve.
