Reviews for Slow-Cooked Greek Chicken Dinner
"I haven't tried this recipe yet but am planning on fixing it today. I really sounds like a delicious and easy recipe. I think I will add a few less potatoes and add a couple of carrots to it just to give it a little more color since my family likes carrots. It sounds like a winner. I will rate it after I try it."
"I used boneless chicken breasts and doubled the liquid. Everyone in the family enjoyed it and I liked how easy it was!"
"I would make this again, but definitely did not make enough gravy for the amount of food that was cooked."
"I LOVE using the slow cooker! Whole chickens can be such a great buy, and the simple ingredients in this recipe are always on hand in my kitchen. The flavors are great and my family loved this dinner! I didn't change a thing. THANKS!"
"This sounds super good. I have been wondering what to do about the fryer chicken I picked up on sale last week"
