"One day, I needed to have dinner ready when we walked in the door after work and school. So I altered a skillet dish that my family likes into this delicious slow cooker meal, and it was ready and waiting when we got home. It's perfect for a weeknight meal but is nice enough for company, too." —Judy Armstrong, Prairieville, Louisiana

"I was truly disappointed in the outcome of this recipe. Followed the recipe as specified. Although I enjoy all of the ingredients, the combination is an undesirable taste."

"We didn't care for this recipe. It did not have enough flavor and the chardonnay left a bitter aftertaste. We used boneless chicken breasts but I don't think that was what affected the flavors"

"I made this with pinot grigio instead of chardonnay. It was very good, the only thing I might try next time is using boneless chicken (breasts & thighs) and adjusting the time accordingly. It was really easy and tasty."
