Phil has had me making this soup for 13 years now-since I have known him. It is really easy and we love it. You need chicken, any kind will do, bone in, skin on is what we use. Put it in a large pot of water, enough water to cover the chicken by 2-3 inches. Add one onion cut up in any size pieces you want. Cook the chicken (and onion) until it is done. Add one box 16 oz of macaroni. Cook until macaroni is done. Add one large can (sorry, I have forgotten what the ounces were on the can but about a quart) of whole tomatoes. Turn off heat, add salt and pepper and serve.
