Re: Slow Cooker Chicken Soup?

True - you do not need stock to make to make stock - BIMHO you need it to make soup.

KathyK - I think my sister picked some of the chicken off the rotisserie bird and added to her soup - but, didn't strip it naked. LOL.....

YEs, keep us posted on how it came out and how long you had to cook it.
