MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 9, 2014

"Delicious. Definitely use a cup of white wine--not water. I added 16oz of sliced mushrooms. Made plenty of juice. Served it with garlic mashed potatoes. Company loved it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 29, 2014

"Fixed this for husband on a night when I cooked a different exotic dish that the rest of the family and I like but that he doesn't. He really liked it, said the chicken was very tender and went back for seconds. He is quite picky so this is a winner for us that'll go into our slow cooker rotation. The only change was that I reduced the water to 1/2 cup based on some of the previous reviews."

MY REVIEW

"I really enjoyed this recipe, quick, easy and quite tasty. I used two large chicken breasts and kept the rest of ingredients' ratio the same aas printed. An entire meal-in-one-pot that my husband really liked, too."

MY REVIEW

"This recipe was very easy and came out very good! But instead of the water, I used 3/4 cup white wine and some ground black pepper. I will definitely make this again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 8, 2014

"I thought this was very good, and so did my 16 y/o son. . Perfect answer for a busy day. I put all the ingredients in the slow cooker, and four hours later, dinner was ready. Very easy to make. The only thing I would do differently is to add a little bit of cornstarch to thicken the broth."
