Do I Have To Use Rotisserie Chicken?

No.  You can use any cooked chicken.  You’ll need about 2 breasts worth of meat.  So if you’d rather grill or bake your chicken, feel free to do that.  I like rotisserie chicken because it is really tender and flavorful.  And if I’m making my own bone broth – I can use the carcass to do that.

Can I Make This Dish On The Stove Top?

Absolutely.  You can make this is a large stock pot and simmer until your veggies are tender – about 20 minutes.
