Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup

The Rotisserie chicken really makes this soup so much better then boiling a few chicken breasts, it also adds so much to the flavor of the soup.
When I know that I am making this soup, I will pick up a cooked Rotisserie chicken at the grocery store, or Costco. I have no idea how long Rotisserie chicken's keep, I would not store the chicken in the refrigerator for more then 2 days before you use it.
My family loves this soup, it is not watered down, and not to thick. A perfect consistency!
Add some French bread or rolls and you have a warm dinner perfect for a chilly night.

Make sure you use all the liquid in the bottom of the container the chicken comes in. It adds a lot of flavor!
