My family loved this recipe. I did make some changes. I used 1/2 cup + 2 TBSP milk and I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts. I also cooked 1 hour on high and 4 1/2 hours on low. Will make again.

This is a great one pot meal with chicken. I did used a small chopped sweet onion instead of the green chilies and then cream of mushroom soup instead of the cream of onion soup. Instead of chicken seasoning just use 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder and 1/4 tsp. of onion powder. Didn't use the rosemary. The veggies do need to be pre-cooked a bit as they aren't done when the chicken is. Can't cook the chicken longer as it will dry out.

I liked the flavor of this meal. My husband doesn't like green chilies so I left those out and added some slices of onion. I cut the potatoes into approximately 2" chunks and everything was perfectly cooked after 5 hours on high. I also didn't have any rosemary so I left that out, too.

I nixed the green chilles, and put in Epicure Holiday spice instead of Rosemary, and a dash of white wine !!~~~***

This sounded wonderful, but I was hesitant to try it since so many people had different cooking times/methods. I finally did though, and it was yummy! I hate undercooked potatoes in the slow cooker, so I parboiled the potatoes and carrots before putting them in the cooker. I used just one 4 oz. can of chopped green chiles, and after I browned the chicken breasts I put a thinly sliced small onion in the drippings and browned them slightly, then added it to the other vegetables. I set my cooker on high for one hour, then turned it down to low and cooked it all for about four hours. I kept worrying that I was over-cooking it, but it came out just delicious. I'll be making this one again!!
