Chicken broth in crock-pot, help

Hey everyone, does anyone know how to get a homemade broth in crock pot with using boneless chicken and carrots only. How long to cook? How much water to add? Would it still be broth once remove cooked meat and veggie?

No. Go get some chicken stock or broth. You need bones to make a stock or broth.
My opinion only.

You can make chicken broth in a regular pot in about 20 minutes. Heat two chicken breast halves and two quarts of water (and the carrots if you like) to boiling, reduce to simmer and simmer 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the chicken sit in the broth for another 10 minutes. Done.

Yes, it's still broth once you remove the other ingredients.

Stock requires bones, but broth does not.

I agree. I sometimes use the carcass from a rotisserie chicken. Turns out good.

It turns out great, but it's not broth. It's stock. They're not the same thing.

Next question:
What is the difference between broth and stock?
Can they be used for each other?

Yes, basically the same thing. You could not go wrong using the words interchangeably except here on this forum or a professional forum.
As you can see, broth and stock to me are the same thing as I always make it the same. Long simmered bones and aromatic vegetables.
Technically I make a stock.

Really? I assume chicken carcass means bones with some meat clinging to the bones.

I made stock a couple of days ago. I used a bag full of wing tips that I roasted for an hour first, then added them to a pot of water (and a quart of store bought stock for "starter") with a couple of carcases from roasts, a bundle of fresh thyme, rosemary and parsley, carrots, onions and celery. Simmered for a couple of hours, strained and in the fridge. I ended up with about a gallon of stock. I'm going to use some of it tonight, then freeze the rest.
