"This is a delicious recipe that lends itself to experimentation. I eliminated the veg. oil to save calories and cooked the chicken and onion in cooking spray. I added some chili powder and dried chili flakes for a bit more heat. I used half the chicken, one can of diced tomatoes and one can green chilis as well as the beans. I also added some yellow squash I had deseeded and chopped and added some cilantro...I am retired so don't use a slow cooker much. I cooked this on top of the stove and simmered for about 45 min. Great taste."

"Good, but misses the chili aspect of chicken chili (no chili powder). Also misses a few key ingredients like corn, chicken staulk and seasonongs. Very close and healthy if you don't mind it not tasking anytning like chili."

"This was a very tasty chili. I cooked the chicken ahead of time and was very happy that the chicken did not dry up at all. I would like a little more heat/flavor next time I make it."

"I liked this much better the second day after all the flavors settled. I shredded the chicken. This was delicious with cheese and sour cream topping was added. I also chose to use mixed veggies instead of just carrots."

"I loooooooooooove this recipe & make it at least once a month. My husband isn't that big of a chili/stew/soup fan, but he really enjoys this & asks for seconds. Like Robin, I just throw the raw chicken in & it cooks just fine over the 5 hours."

"I had some extra dark red kidney beans, so I added those. I didn't have to cook the chicken ahead of time. It cooked in the crock pot durring the 5 hours. It was perfect and everyone kept asking for the recipe! Thank you!"

"Liked the flavors. It is easy to overcook the chicken. Is a bit soupy unless you add cheese and sourcream.

Next time I would consider cooking whole chicken pieces and "pulling" them at the end. Might also drain one of the tomato cans."
