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.
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.
