1. I don't have a crock pot. Can I use a big pot if I'm home all day to watch it, or does a crockpot make a world of difference?

2. I HATE when the chicken is stringy and chewy in chicken noodle soup. Is there any way for the chicken to be juicy, or is this something I should just expect with soup?

3. I want to use thick chunky noodles, like egg noodles.

4. Give me a recipe!!!!!
