NOTES: This is an excellent recipe for people on the go! Just start it in the morning and by 5 or 6 pm you have dinner! You can even get a package of mixed frozen vegetables if you don’t have time to chop fresh ones. Buying a whole chicken is cheaper than to buy one pre-cut. The chicken almost falls off the bones it is so tender and it makes taking out the bones easy! Serve it in bowls over rice; like chicken soup. It makes a large amount and lasts at least 2-3 meals.
