Grandma's Favorite Chicken Recipe

"My Grandma used to make this chicken and it was my mom’s favorite. It is very easy, quick, flexible, and delicious. You may add as many different veggies and any amount you want. The broth made from this is great to dip bread and butter; my brother loves to have it as soup. Yum!!!"
