"Pretty yummy. I did bone in chicken breasts, and I did not use the browning sauce. The chicken came out moist and held the flavor well. My picky 8 year old daughter ate it, so I'll be making it again, plus I love using my crockpot."

"I really liked it after adding 1 tsp of browning sauce instead of 1/2 tsp. I use this seasoning for boneless, skinless and bone-in breasts. The bone-in is usually more flavorful. I cook it for less time when I use boneless, skinless."

"Very tasty and so easy! I made a nice gravy with the juices and served the chicken on a bed of rice with peas. Delicious!"

"I added diced carrots and potatoes. The vegetables had a really good taste but we did not care much for the chicken. None of the flavor penetrated the chicken even though I pierced each piece with a fork, rubbed the seasoning on both top and bottom and let it sit overnight."

"This was good, but not the best. Not as flavourful as I thought it would be with all the herbs used. Added celery &carrots, as some suggested. Used bone in thighs, cooked for 4 hours (probably done in less time). The broth was good thickened with flour, served over rice. Will try again, adding more herbs. Very quick to put together, but as I said, just not as much flavour as we like."

"We enjoyed this chicken dinner. Like some other reviewers, I used smoked paprika and lifted the skin to rub the spices underneath. I chopped up the leftovers for chicken salad. I used the tasty cooking juices in place of plain chicken broth in my white bean ragout side dish."

"Did not like it. When it was in the slow cooker it smelled like cabbage cooking. Will not make it again."
