Chicken soup from leftover chicken? (split from Ontario board)

I have a question I thought of while I had a $10 take-out chicken from Bom Apetite tonight..

Can the leftover bones/chicken from just 1 chicken be used to make a soup?

Usually I stop in and just get one whole chicken, because I think its a good deal at only $10.. and at the end of it I always have usually at least the 2 thighs left (un-eaten), and all of the bones from the bird .. can you use this to make a chicken soup ? or does it require significantly more "carcass"? the chickens you get here aren't large.. I can easily ask for the bird not to be cut up and left whole, which might work better for the application... I've never made home made chicken soup before, usually thats something my Mom would make, haha..

with this bad economy and tough times, every cent counts..that would really be getting the most out of your cash, if $10 got you a chicken dinner and a small pot of soup for the next meal.. add some rice, or better yet, wild rice... or noodles.. and your in business.. never heard anyone talk about it before, so I figured I'd ask... someone give me a recipe :D
