I always try to have my daughter, son-in-law and my grandchildren over for this supper. They make me so happy by saying, "That was so good!" or by just going to fill up their bowls. It's a good-for-you hit. —Pam Corder, Monroe, Louisiana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 8, 2014

"I had never used fire roasted tomatoes before. This dish was delicious. The flavor was exceptional and it was a hearty stew. I'll pass this recipe on to my daughter."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 8, 2014

"Slow cookers, raw chicken, long holding time between 45 and 165 degrees all work together to spell potentially sick people. Think food safety please."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 30, 2014

"This was delicious and has amazing flavor. It makes a lot for just a family of 3 so I froze the leftovers and it freezes great!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 11, 2014

"This was pretty good. It sort of reminded me of a Brunswick stew."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 21, 2014

"This recipe is so much easier and convenient to prepare with boneless, skinless chicken thighs.No need to shred the meat and return to the slow cooker. I just use one large chicken thigh per person. My husband likes lima beans so was pleased to come across this recipe.I have also used boneless, skinless chicken breasts as well."
