"Awesome dish! We love it!"

MY REVIEW

"My 12 year old says "Best Chicken Ever!""

MY REVIEW

"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."

MY REVIEW

"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."
