   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.
