This had the best flavor and you get a lot for the points.  I will definitely make this again.

1 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken breasts

3 celery stalks, cut in half

2 bay leaves

4 black peppercorns

5 cups water

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup chopped celery (about 3 stalks)

1 cup sliced carrot (about 2 medium)

1 32 oz container chicken broth

4 cups uncooked whole wheat egg noodles

1 cup frozen green peas

1 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp salt

Place first 5 ingredients in a Dutch oven.  Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until chicken is done.  Transfer chicken to a cutting board, and remove chicken from bones, discarding skin and bones.  Coarsely chop chicken.

Strain cooking liquid through a sieve over a bowl, discarding vegetables and solids.  Return liquid to pan.  Add onion and next 3 ingredients; bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 13 minutes.  Stir in chopped chicken, noodles, and remaining ingredients.  Cover and simmer 10 minutes.
