MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 21, 2013

I am going to make this recipe for the first time for Thanksgiving. but instead of the water, I will add a can of chicken broth to make my gravy. set it on high for an hour, then switch it on low. this seems to be ideal for just 3 of us enjoying a meal away from the crowds of restaurants Thanksgiving day !

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 24, 2012

After cooking for 6 hours (and only a 4 lb breast) my meat thermometer only read 140. Is this normal? Should this recipe be cooked on high to insure safety?

So easy! I was worried that there was no liquid but it turned out perfect! Juicy and very flavorful! A permanent addition to my recipe file!

So juicy and fall off the bone tender. This was so easy to make that we might just do this for Thanksgiving.
