Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

This was a great chicken noodle soup. I usually only like chicken noodle soup when I'm sick, but this was something I could eat all the time. The only weird thing is that after letting it sit overnight is that it continued to thicken, so it got to be less of a soup the next few times I warmed it up. Maybe adding additional chicken broth would help when you want to warm it up again.
