Hearty Chicken and Noodles

Trying to find a way to use up all that rotisserie chicken breast (and having something of a “chicken pot pie” vibe in mind), I ran across this recipe on Recipezaar. The amount of butter in this one means that it’s not healthy by any stretch of the imagination, but OMG is it good. A very thick, hearty soup with rich chicken flavor and nice thick noodles and a great mouth feel. I’m highly recommending it if you have any amount of leftover chicken you need to use.
