Health Benefits of Chicken Soup

The easiest chicken soup recipe ever!
This is how I make chicken soup in under an hour. Actual cooking time is only about 20-30 minutes, but if you need to cut up the veggies then the prep can take awhile.
1. Cut up an assortment of veggies and put them in a pot.
2. Open some cans of chicken and put the chicken in the pot.
3. Put a bullion cube in the pot.
4. Add some fun spices.
5. Fill up the pot with water.
6. Add several slices of butter.
7. Bring pot to a boil and cook for awhile.
8. Add rice or noodles, and cook some more time.
The total cooking time varies.. If you cook the veggies longer, the broth will become more like vegetable stock. But, if you like your noodles to be al dente, then only cook the noodles for the length of time it says on the package.
