Some amazingly fresh mushrooms I found at our local farmers market inspired this recipe. When you start with the best ingredients, you can't go wrong. —Jenn Tidwell, Fair Oaks, California

"Made this for dinner this week and unfortunately it did not turn out well. Very bland and the flavor of the onions, mushrooms and peas did not mix well. I'm sure it's a good base recipe to maybe build on, but if you want flavor, this recipe is not for you."

"Nope. It smelled delicious, but tasted very bland and boring. It tasted like mushrooms, peas, and chicken individually just warmed up together. I would not recommend this recipe."

"This was very easy to prepare, but it would be improved with additional seasonings. Needs to be served with rice, potatoes, noodles, etc."

"This was easy and good. Needed some salt, I think I'll put more seasonings in the next time. Since it's just me, I store the entire crock liner in the 'fridge, then after work, I warm it up in the crock pot while I'm at my meetings and it's ready when I come home a few hours later. 3 dinners it makes for me, and by the third night, the chicken almost melts in your mouth and the flavors are blended wonderfully. Great with buttered egg noodles!"

"This is a good recipe, but those of you who are concerned about the sodium in this recipe, I encourage you to first brown the chicken breasts in olive oil in a saute pan, then, in olive oil, saute the mushrooms and some onions until brown and carmalized. Add another tablespoon of olive oil and stir in 1 T flour (if you are gluten free, add gluten free flour) and stir and brown, then add 3/4 c. of salt free chicken stock and 1/2 cup white wine. Pour over the chicken in the slow cooker, add the mushroom and onion mixture and peas. Cook on low for 5 hours. If you like more flavor, add 1 t. salt and a 1/2 t. pepper and 1/2 t, poultry seasonings. Yummy!"

"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."

"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."

"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."
