 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. We've 
 found that 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! We serve it in bowls over rice; like chicken soup. It 
 makes a large amount and lasts at least 2-3 meals for us. I hope you 
 enjoy.
