Reviews for Slow Cooker Chicken Dinner
"We really liked this recipe. The chicken was so tender, we didn't even have to use a knife to cut it. The soups make a perfect gravy. Definitely a keeper."
"This is a great recipe! I added one onion cut into wedges. You can change up the soup flavors easily to suit your preferences."
"I'm usually one to agree with most reviewers on this site, but for this one I have to disagree. I made it exactly as written - chicken was very tender as were the veggies - but the flavor of the whole dish was simply, bland. Much more bland than I anticipated. My 1yo son ate it up; Mommy and Daddy chose to eat something else after a small taste."
"I saw this recipe and thought I'd try it since I was having a busy grandbaby day. We're not fond of cooked carrots, so I only put two chopped carrots in. Didn't have chicken breasts so I used chicken tenders. Put my tenders in frozen and cooked on high for one hour. It was done in five hours and very tender and flavorful. Grandbaby gobbled it up and wanted more! Very easy and good recipe! Thanks for sharing!"
"Great recipe! I happened to have Italian seasoned chicken breasts on hand, so I used them. I added a small chopped onion, salt and pepper. The chicken was so tender after about 6 hours it was falling apart, so I just shredded it into large pieces, and it ended up being like a chicken stew! Delish!"
"The only things I did differently was to add a can of cream of mush and garlic since that was all I had, and to add a few more spices. Good, simple meal!"
"We love this! Made this several times! Will definitely be making again real soon!"
"I served this at a friendly dinner. Everyone liked it, though I did see several people adding salt and pepper. I will probably add more garlic and rosemary next time, but will definitely use this recipe again."
"This was very good. I did, however, make one substitution. Instead of cream of mushroom (I hate mushrooms), I used cream of broccoli. Husband liked it so much, he ate two large bowls. Definitely going in my recipe box to be used again. Thank you for sharing!"
"First time trying this dinner and I really Loved it"
"Good meal on a cool night. It does need more flavor. Be sure to add herbs."
"After reading other reviews, I used a few more potatoes, used crushed garlic instead of garlic salt and added rosemary for flavor. I used season salt and ground pepper on top of the chicken before adding soup. About an hour before serving, I removed the chicken to a platter and covered with foil and then added fresh mushrooms and frozen green beans to pot - turned pot up to high. The chicken was tender and the soup/veggies were very tasty. This is definitely a keeper."
"if you alter the recipe then why rate it? no wonder you didn't like it"
"This was fantastic! We seasoned 'to taste' using garlic powder, cumin, paprika, and rosemary. We also added a half cup of white wine. We will definitely be making this tasty treat again!"
"This is an EXCELLENT dish and so easy, I add more of everything because I have a big family, but it's perfect thank you!"
"Just down home cooking that?s fast and easy to prepare. It is more like a stew. I thought it was wonderful and what man doesn?t like gravy? easy and fast to put together the night before. Then refrig. and take it out in the morning for a switch on and go. I also liked the use of the potato flakes for a thickening. May try this trick in some of my stew recipes."
"This is good, not great. It is a simple and satisfying weeknight meal so I will make it again."
"Too salty as a result of the condensed soups and garlic salt."
"This was a great dish...even my daughter who doesn't care for these types of dishes loved it. Adding the potato flakes it thicken instead of corn starch or flour was great. It didn't give it that pasty taste. I was also great the second day."
"To us this recipe tasted a lot like a chicken stew. I did alter the recipe a bit by adding an extra can of cream of chicken and a pkg of onion soup mix. I wouldn't say this is an out of this world dish, but good enough for a night that I don't have time to cook and need something ready when I come home."
"We found this to be rather bland. It needs something to bump up the flavor."
"We found it a bit bland, and will add onions and pepper next time. Maybe an envelope of onion soup mix, too."
"I added 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme and poultry seasoning to this recipe to make it more like chicken pot then served it in bowls with a homemade biscuit on top....yummy!"
"Very good and so easy to make."
