Sparkpeople ingredient finder didn't have "whole raw chicken" in the search. You can easily find this in your grocery store. Buy whatever size you think you would like to use, and then cover with water until there is approximately 2 inches above the chicken. (Alternatively, you can use whatever chicken pieces you currently have and just throw them in the pot with everything else.)
You can use the chicken in a chicken noodle soup, chicken casserole, or whatever you would like! It is easiest to remove the meat while it is still slightly warm as the skin will still slide off. The meat should fall off the bones fairly easily.
Please note: The dried flowers are purely optional. They just add a depth to the broth that will surprise you.
Serving Size: makes 6, 1.5 cup servings approximately
