Simple Soup Idea: Chicken Bits, Sausage, Noodles

On a cold day, soup is wonderful, and this was a sudden inspiration using little scraps from the freezer. 

When we grill chicken, hubby like the bits of fat to be cut away from chicken breasts.  We usually slice the breasts into tenderloins, but some pieces end up being too small for the grill.  Those go into the freezer for soups, fried rice, etc.

Saute a chopped onion in a little olive oil.  Get the chicken bits in there and cook them up.  Add water, get the mixture boiling.  A smidge of celery seed and white pepper, along with enough chicken bouillon to give your mix a good flavor (to your taste).  Once the water is boiling well, add egg 12 qt. stockpot took nearly 2 full pounds of wide egg noodles.  Meanwhile, cook up a pound of ground sausage, drain, then add to your pot.
