Put the chicken in the crock-pot. Add two cups of water. Salt and pepper to taste.
Cook on high 2-3 hrs until done.
Cut chicken into small chunks, and make gravy with the broth that you drain off the chicken. I use cornstarch, but use flour if you prefer, for the gravy. Cook rice for 10 people. Your guests will bring the other 9 items. (See Notes below)
