$5 Dinner Challenge - Chicken Soup

Here's a cheap alternative to canned chicken soup.  I like using ingredients I have and I always have these ingredients around.  For more $5 dinner ideas, go here!

Chicken Soup
1 lb chicken breasts
1/2 cup chopped carrots
2 celery stalks chopped
1/4 cup peas or corn
2 can chicken broth
1 tsp pepper or more to taste
3/4 cup to 1 cup noodles (depending what you use)
1 to 2 cups water

1.  Cut chicken in bite size pieces.
2.  Boil chicken in pot of water for 15 minutes.
3.  Put broth, cooked chicken, carrots, celery, peas (or corn), pepper, noodles and a cup of water in pot.  Cook on stove on low for a couple hours or cook to boil and simmer for 20 minutes.

**You can substitute chicken bouillon for the broth or use 3 can of broth instead of water**
