Boil chicken in the 12 cups of water until tender. Remove chicken and cool. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Add enough water to bring the chicken stock back to 12 cups of liquid. Add the soup packet, tomatoes, and bouillon cubes to the pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 1 ½ hours. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Add chicken and heat through. Add additional water if soup becomes too thick.
