Brent's Chicken & Noodles

1 50 oz can Sweet Sue Boned Chicken
1 14.5 oz can chicken broth (low sodium is preferred so you can adjust the salt later)

3 Tbsp dried chicken base (I used Bellview brand)
5 3/4 cup water (1 50oz can full)

Place half of the chicken in a large pot, reserving remaining chicken for another batch. Fill pot with chicken broth and water. Add chicken base and bring to a boil. Add noodles and boil 10-12 minutes or until done, stirring occasionally.
