MY REVIEW

"I love this recipe! I have made this recipe many times, and I change little. I do add a little extra wild rice to the rice mix... just plain wild rice by itself, because I like it. I add about 1/4 cup. I decrease the water to 3/4 cup as I prefer al dente rice ... found it a little mushy with a whole cup. I don't always add tarragon. But it's a great recipe!"

"This recipe was amazing! Next time I will just add a little more liquid. It did cook up in less time for me tho."

MY REVIEW

"We liked this alot. The rice wasn't mushy after 5 hours. Maybe the others have the old style slow cookers that cook too hot. I did have to add more liquid in the form of chicken broth, but that was the only change I made."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 10, 2012

"I would give this 5 stars but once again they are "missing". Very good, didn't find it too salty at all and I never salt anything other than popcorn and french fries. Chicken was moist and rice was done. Excellent flavor."
