Chicken Noodle Soup

This soup was so easy to make.  Just dump all the ingredients into a large pot and cook the noodles until they’re done. The chicken is already cooked so you don’t have to mess with that. You get 4 points for one cup and it’s very filling. Ben had 2 cups for 6 points and he said that he felt very satisfied. This one was on the Weight Watcher website last week.  You won’t have to buy store bought Chicken Noodle soup in the can anymore after making this one. ;)
