MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 23, 2009

I make this a bit differently, but the ingredients are the same. I place a whole chicken in the crock pot and dump the rest of the ingredients on top (no need to mix). I cook it on high for 4 hours or low 6-8 hours. When the chicken is falling off the bones, I remove the chicken and pour the broth through a fine mesh sieve. Then I serve the chicken over jasmine rice and add some broth over top. Steam some broccoli on the side and your set. This is one of our favorite recipes. It's great as leftovers too, in tortillas with rice and lettuce the next day.
