MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 4, 2014

Made this the other night, it was wonderful. Modified the spices a litte to give it my own flair. For a single person, it holds and last a while.

I have been making this one a while, its good to put together the night before and turn on while we are at a sports event or game. I don't use the ham or prosciutto and tend to stick with cut up chicken breast to keep the fat down. I do add about 3 tablespoons of capers and their juice for flavor. I also prefer to put it on top of Uncle Bens original flavored rice to punch up the flavor because with plain pasta or rice it can be a bit bland for us.

I did not like this chicken very much. It was edible, and very moist, but I just thought that it was way too bland for my taste.

Outstanding and very easy to make using a crockpot... definitely part of our menu fare for a good weeknight meal. Thanks!

MY REVIEW

I am giving this a five rating, which I think it was after I made a few changes. I used chicken tenders and after browning them and removing them to the crockpot, I sauteed the onions and garlic in the remaining oil. Then I added the broth and tomatoes, along with the seasoning and deglazed the pan in order to enhance the flavors. I then proceeded with the recipe as written, except that used a little flour and water to thicken the sauce a little. I also omitted the pimentos since we really don't like them. So, all in all, it turned out to be a tasty dish.
