Step 1

Place ingredients for the stock in a large pot, cover with water (about 4 quarts) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low, rolling boil and cook 1 hour, turning the chicken occasionally.

Remove pot from heat, cover and let chicken cool in stock to room temperature. Remove chicken and separate the meat from skin and bones; pull into bite-sized pieces. Strain stock.

Heat a soup pot over medium heat with extra virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan. Add leeks and carrots, sauté to soften. Season with salt, add stock and bring to a boil. Add noodles and cook 5 minutes. Add in shredded chicken, lemon juice, dill and parsley to serve.
