Reviews for Saucy Chicken with Veggies and Rice
"Rather upset...the receipe in the slowcooker receipe says to add the next five ingredients to the crockpot and cook...then says to mix cornstarch and wine or broth...I just added the five and then realized it didn't sound right. I'm not a super cook so I didn't catch it first. Disappointed because its probably not going to come out right."
"Was a quick easy recipe but my wife and I did not care for the flavor. Was OK but not good enough to make again."
"This is an excellent recipe and will certainly make it again. Did change a couple things. decreased pepper to 1/2 tsp. and added about 1 cup chicken broth in crock pot as it seemed too dry with just the 1 can cream of mushroom soup, etc. Turned out wonderful! My husband loved it."
"This is one of my family's FAVORITE recipes! My husband and four year old even eat the vegetables! It is really good on a cold day and I reccommend serving it with some nice fresh baked rolls."
"This has way too much pepper. Would definitely make this again but with a lot less pepper."
"Instead of making the gracvy, I omitted the cornstarch and in the beginning I added 2 cups of chicken broth to make it more moist. Simple, Quick, Easy."
"I will make this recipe again but with some variations. 1 tsp is way to much pepper. I am a big pepper eater but it was overpowering. Next time I will use 1/2 tsp. I will also leave out the tarragon (not a big fan) and add garlic (big fan)."
"I do not plan to make this recipe again. My husband and I did not like it. I agree it is an easy and quick recipe but we didn't like the flavor."
"This was excellant and easy/fun to make. I will definately make it again. 5 Stars from me.Wisconsin"
