Reviews for Slow-Cooked Italian Chicken
"I made this for my family and none of us liked it. The chicken is moist but the sauce is so bland and boring. I wish it had more flavor. I won't be making this again."
"The chicken was so tender and moist, but the sauce was on the bland side, despite the garlic and onion salt. Next time, and I will make it again, I will add more garlic, and italian flavored tomato sauce."
"My family loved it! My sauce was not as thick as pictured. I used 1 tsp chili powder instead of 3, as we don't like too spicy. Flavors were awesome and chicken was tender."
"I used Prego marinara sauce instead of the chicken broth, tomatoe sauce and stewed tomatoes. Half way through cooking, I placed fresh mozarella cheese on top of the chicken breasts. I have cooked this also with frozen chicken breasts when I haven't defrosted the night before. I think this makes the chicken very tender and it will cook through in 5 hours on Low. We loved it and served with Italian bread!"
"The flavors in this dish are very good! I always make a dish exactly as the recipe is written the first time and go from there. I think next time I will use a bigger can of tomato sauce but other than that this is a recipe that I will be making again."
