MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 4, 2014

"This was so easy to throw together and was amazing for a fancy dinner. Definitely a keeper. I did add a pat of butter on each side."

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?"
