Did not like it. When it was in the slow cooker it smelled like cabbage cooking. Will not make it again.
I threw in a few extra spices and also chopped up a bunch of celery and carrots. I didn't get to eat it the first night so it got reheated for about 45 minutes in the crock pot. OMG, it was soooo. Ladled a scoop of that wonderful brother over some broccoli and rice and it was a lovely meal.
Seasoning was good. I tweaked a few things for our preferences, but I didn't really change a lot. However the chicken broth, in my opinion, is almost entirely unnecessary. I added a tiny amount and left it at that. When I made it with the full amount, there was so much liquid in there from the broth and the chicken that the chicken basically boiled in the crock pot.
First, I read many of the comments about the recipe before making it. When I made the paste I resisted the urge to tweak the spices with the exception of using smoked paprika instead of regular. I had 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts on hand and was cooking for two. (Did not change amounts in the spice glaze.) After coating each side I used a pronged meat tenderizer to drive spices into chicken and added another coat before putting them into the crock. I also sautéed one fresh garlic clove in 1 tbsp of butter and added it to the broth. There was to much broth for two half breasts in a 4 qt pot so I added a layer of potatoes underneath. I ended up with a very tasty mealb (chicken was flavorful). The spices were not over powering. But next time I will season the potatoes as well as the chicken, before cooking.
I'm not sure if it was the reason for it being so moist, but I poked each chicken piece with a fork after spreading the topping. (I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts.) I also added some potatoes to the pot to soak up the broth flavor.
It was simple and delicious.
