Rosemary Chicken with White Beans Recipe

"With a full-time job and active 5-year-old, I’m known as the “Crock-Pot Queen” in my family," laughs Sharon Johannes in Ashley, Illinois. "I use my slow cookers at least twice a week…sometimes have two or three going at once with different dishes. I’ve made this recipe for years and, after making a few tweaks, it’s become a treasured favorite."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 3 hours YIELD:6 servings

"I will make this again with a few changes. It was pretty spicy, and we like a lot of pepper. I will reduce it to 1/2 teaspoon. I wonder if the salt and pepper proportions got switched. Otherwise, this was a good recipe. Make sure your chicken breasts are 6 oz as called for in the recipe. Mine were larger, so I had to cook longer and they were dry. Overall, though, an easy and tasty recipe that I will make again."

"I followed the recipe exactly. Waaaaaay too much rosemary! My family ate it but didnt like it. They are not picky eaters. I will not make this dish again."

"This was so good and so easy. I only used 2 chicken breasts and dried rosemary. Next time I will cut back on the rosemary and add an extra can of beans. Served it with buttered noodles and it was a real hit!!"

"Great husband liked it but not crazy about it....I thought it was absolutely scrumptious. Could have used a little more juice though....or it could have been my large slow cooker (only one I have)....but still very tasty.

Thank you!"

"I marinated my chicken in italian dressing overnight and cooked it as directed in this recipe. The meat was tender and juicy and the flavor of this finished dish is perfectly balanced. Half way through the cooking process I ended up adding about 1/2 cup water. This recipe is a keeper!!"

"the concept of this recipe is really tasty... although I forgot to crush the rosemary; we were picking the leaves out of the sauce!! It is very good, and I will make it again, just a little different next time! Thanks again for freeing up my Saturday afternoon and giving a tasty dinner!"

"We love this recipe and it is always a hit at potlucks, too. The only thing I do differently is that I don't bother to brown the chicken. It may not be quite as pretty, but still tastes absolutely delicious. Wonderful fare for a cold winter night!"

"It was pretty good but after awhile it starts tasting to "vinigary". I might tweek it up a bit next time as I can see how it can be a "keeper"."

"This was really good. I left out the celery because we are not big celery fans. I might put in some onion in place of the celery next time. I used a packaged Italian dressing that I mixed up and it gave lots of flavor. Also, I think I might add more beans and carrots next time. I seemed to have more servings of chicken than beans and carrots. It is definitely a "keeper"."

"Great recipe! Just tweaked it a little and added a few strips of bacon, 1/2 cup white wine and lots of garlic!"
