Chicken Noodle Dinner

There's a restaurant I go to and I've always liked their chicken noodle dinner.  I figured I could make it even better at home.  So. . . when my dad gave me some of his homemade noodles I decided to see if I was right.  I was!  This actually turned out really, really good.  I think the key is homemade noodles though -- thanks Dad!

3/4 carrot, chopped
3/4 celery, chopped
3/4 onion, chopped
10 Tablespoons butter, divided
5 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoons chicken bouillon
1 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
7 cups water
12 oz. cooked chicken, cut into chunks
4  to 5 cups cooked egg noodles (homemade are the best!)

Melt 8 tablespoons butter.  Cook carrots, celery and onion until slightly tender.  In a separate small saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter.  Add flour making a roux and cook for 1 minute on low.  Add to vegetable mixture.  In addition, stir in chicken bouillon, parsley, salt, pepper, sage, poultry seasoning and water.  Bring to a boil.  Turn down to low and simmer for 40 minutes (?).  Add chicken and noodles and cook until heated through.  Serve over mashed potatoes.
