In med stock pot boil chicken in approx 2 quarts of water. Pull chicken, (cool & de-bone) while doing this refrigerate the broth, then skim fat off the top. Put chicken back in broth. I use a 6 quart crock pot. Bring to boil.
Add remaining ingredients, simmer for approx 1 hour on high in crock pot, or at this point you can leave it on low while you go shopping or to work.
