  1. In a large dutch oven or stock pot, add onion, celery, carrots, garlic and bay leaf. Place chicken on top, and add water. (If your pot will only hold 10 cups of water at first, the remaining water can be added later, as some of it will evaporate.) Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 1-1/2 hours.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, remove chicken to a plate to cool. Strain the broth, and discard the vegetables.
  3. At this point, the broth may be cooled and frozen for later use, or you may continue on with the recipe. This is an excellent time to remove any remaining fat from the broth.
  4. Remove the meat from the bones, cut and set aside.
  5. Return the broth to a clean pot. Bring to a boil and add the potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 1/2 hour.
  6. Add the chicken, bouillon, frozen vegetables, and noodles. Simmer for 20 minutes.
