MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 20, 2011

i too was unimpressed. It was edible, but nothing to rave about. I felt it too bland and tasted more like boiled chicken than anything else.

MY REVIEW

A Benedict, you said what I was thinking! I made this today for the first time. Thankful that it was only DH and I here, and we didn't have company. They looked pale and awful, as did everything that came out of the crockpot. I did recipe exactly according to directions. It smelled up my kitchen something awful. DH said "Maybe this would have been edible, but the presentation looks AWFUL when the stuff comes out of the crockpot. We threw it all in the garbage and found some junk food to eat, instead. I lit a candle to clear the stench from the kitchen. DH saw me with a match and said "What are you trying to do, burn the recipe?" Don't waste your money on this one, folks.

My hens did not look anything like the picture; they were bland despite using 2 tsps each of lemon pepper and garlic powder. The hens looked pale and sickly. I won't do hens in slow cooker again.
