This is exactly what it sounds like. I use this to make my Chicken Stew and Chicken Casserole.
1 whole chicken
2 -3 cups water
Skin the chicken. (This really reduces the calories and grease in the broth). Put chicken in the crock-pot with water. Cook until chicken it is almost falling off the bone (about 5 hours on low). Strain broth to remove any bones.
If you buy a big enough chicken, use part for the stew/casserole and then make chicken salad sandwiches with the rest.
