Chicken Noodle Soup

Another of our sweet neighbors had surgery last week.  She is on a very restricted diet for a few weeks, so I made her this simple soup.  It is easy to make, and has a nice, mild flavor.

1 small whole chicken
1 box of chicken stock
3-4 C water
1 medium onion, chopped
1 C carrots, sliced in rounds
1 C celery, sliced
1 bay leaf
1 tsp. fresh thyme. minced
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 C thin egg noodles
Parsley, optional

Put chicken in large pot, add stock and water.  Cook chicken until done, then remove from pot.  Add all remaining ingredients to pot, except noodles.  Simmer for about an hour to allow flavors to marry.  Remove chicken meat from bones, then add to soup.  If the broth is too rich, add water.  Bring to boil, and add noodles, cooking per package instructions for al dente.  Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.
