Place the chicken, broth, carrots, water, onions, and celery in a pot and boil them together. Cook the chicken for 15 minutes until it becomes faded pink. Remove the chicken and skim the fat from the broth. Put the broth into the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours, and after that skim the fat out of it. Break the chicken into small pieces and mix it with the skimmed broth and other remaining ingredients, then place this over high heat until it comes to a boil.
Later reduce the flame to medium and let it boil slowly. Cook this for 3 to 5 minutes and serve it hot right away as the pasta will keep absorbing liquid if the soup is not consumed hot. This soup just takes 45 minutes to prepare and is healthy and helps control the sugar level.
