    You can cook the chicken in the crockpot with some water. Take it out after a few hours, remove the meat, and place the bones back in for another few hours. Personally, I more often roast the chicken then just make the broth using the leftover carcass + bones on the stovetop so I can better control the temperature, but I know many here swear by the crockpot.

    Add water, chop some carrots and throw them in, chop some celery and throw that in(a pinch of celery seed if you don't have fresh celery) and chop an onion and throw that in. Put in some salt and let it simmer for awhile. When it seems done enough for you taste and add more salt if it needs it.

    How much water? Understand the rest. Enough water to cover the bones?

    That's how I do it on the stovetop, just enough to cover them. If it doesn't gel well when it's cooled you can either try cooking it a little longer or just reducing it. In my limited experience, if you cook it for a really long time (like a whole day), it actually doesn't gel as well as it does when cooked for a shorter amount of time (like 8-10 hours).
