This delectable dish puts a whole new spin on the old standard!

18
5 cans chicken broth
5 cups water
1 whole raw chicken, washed & emptied of any giblets.
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
1/2 Tbsp. pepper
1 Tbsp. "Nature's Seasoning" (or your favorite seasoned salt)
1 large yellow onion - diced
2 (7 oz.) cans mild green chilies, undrained
2 (7 oz.) cans diced mushrooms, undrained
2 one lb. pkgs. wide egg noodles
2 lb. block "Velvetta" cheese - cubed
In a large stock pot, boil chicken broth with water & seasonings. Place whole chicken in pot and simmer for 2 hrs., til chicken legs begin to seperate easily from the body. Remove chicken to platter. Debone & dice chicken meat. Reserve broth! Measure broth down to 3 quarts only. (You can freeze remainder) NOTE: I do the above listed steps the day before, placing my chicken & reserve broth seperately in the fridge overnight to help speed the process. I finish the remaining steps the next evening! In same large stock pot, boil 3 quarts broth. Add in onion & green chilies, along with their juice until onions are tender. Stir in both pkgs. of dry egg noodles. Boil about 6 minutes. Add cubed, cooked chicken meat, mushrooms with juice & cubed "Velvetta" cheese. Turn stock pot down to low. Gently stir every 10 minutes, melting together for 30 - 45 minutes. Keep lid on in between stirs. Warning: This makes a Ton of food!
