      This is a wonderful recipe! Very good recipe description, easy to make and so fragrant! I froze the remaining broth for later use, to cook rice. Only change I made was to use four chicken legs instead of one whole chicken, but otherwise followed to the letter.
      Will make this again with great pleasure! Thanks for sharing!
      Made for Think Pink 2011.

      Lovely! I cooked the chicken the day before in the slow cooker. let the fat settle on the stock overnight, and went from there.

      Delicious. Easy steps but takes a bit longer than 1.5 hours - or was that just me?
