Reviews for Italian Chicken Chardonnay
"Nice flavors , next time i will use thighs and drums and more garlic , I will also add poultry season on the chicken pieces"
"Great recipe! Thanks for submitting"
"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."
"Made this New Year's Day and was very impressed. Quite delicious. Only changes I made was after 5 hours in crock pot on low, I diced up the chicken and returned to pot and added 1 bag of frozen style veggies of choice. Cooked for 1 more hour. Great flavor and aroma!"
"I make this often and my family likes it. Sometimes I use chicken thighs instead of breasts. Also good. I have also made it in the oven rather than in the slow cooker. Equally good.. It adapts well to the time and ingredients on hand."
"Definitly a "keeper" at my house. I did make it in a skillet 'cause I didn't plan ahead. I browned the chicken breasts first, removed them and cooked the veg's a bit, added the breasts back, poured the sauce over and simmered it awhile. That's probably how the original was done, I'm thinking. It had lots of great flavor. Oh, I didn't have leftover Chardonnay so used some over the hill for drinking Gewurztraminer. That worked just fine."
"I use boneless,skinless chicken thighs,cook until they are done with all the vege's included.Be sure to take off the hard outer leaves of the artichoke hearts,I find they are tough and hard to eat but the rest are delicious.Good recipe even with the changes."
"I make this very often...ocassionally I use penne pasta instead of linguine. Its always a favorite in my house.also its a very forgiving base sauce as long as u season good with garlic. ...ive even left out thyme and replaced with a tsp or so of Italian seasoning. ...a great delicious crock pot / slow cooker recipe! Ty"
"My husband, who eats most everything, is't fond of this recipe. He thought it had an after taste."
"I followed this recipe almost exactly (I used thighs and drumsticks instead of chicken breasts, and fresh thyme instead of dried) and it was really delicious. My husband even said I should make it once a week, which is high praise from him."
"Yummy! Made it exactly as recipe says, but had 2 plum tomatos I needed to use so I diced them and added them too. Cooked for about 4 hrs. Perfection!!"
"Its Superb for a diabetic like me"
"Delicious & easy recipe! I used chicken tenderloins & shredded them into the sauce at the end. Served it over spaghetti & sprinkled w/Parmesan. Yum!"
