Reviews for Slow Cooker Garlic Clove Chicken
"Bland. Bland. Bland."
"I was hoping this would turn out good. It had such good reviews. I didn't think it was anything special"
"This chicken is amazingly flavorful and so easy!"
"This was good. I followed the suggestion of one of the other comments and used Balsamic Vinegar in place of the Vermouth. I served it with rice. It was a big hit with my family and will definitely make it again."
"Very good! I agree anything with Garlic is good. This is soooo easy to throw together and as it cooks the house smells good. I too did not have vermouth on hand so I substituted Merlot wine, and it was great! Everything else I had on hand and added it as the recipe stated. Great chicken!"
