Bring chicken pieces, broth, 2 1/2 gal. water and chicken soup base to a boil, then add noodles. Boil for 5 minutes. Mix cream of chicken soup with 1 cup water. Pour that over the top. Brown butter and pour over top. do not stir! Put lid on and let set for 1 hour before serving.
Yield: 1 (20 qt.) stockpot full. Use this recipe for large crowds, etc. as they do not get mushy and stay delicious. Is best if made with homemade noodles or something similar.

Cook chicken in pot covered with water. When done, drain. Reserve liquid. Remove meat from chicken, discard skin, cut into small pieces.
Follow directions on soup packet except reduce liquid by 1/3 and use liquid from cooked chicken for the remaining 1/3.
Add chicken pieces to noodles. Handy for quick meal. Easy to reheat and to freeze in zip-lock bag for later.
