Round out this saucy seasoned chicken with some rice or pasta, suggests Mary Kretschmer. "I often make this dish when my children and grandchildren visit," she pens from Miami, Florida. "Using the slow cooker leaves me more time to enjoy their company."

"This was great. I didn't have any tarragon, so I used a little fennel seed and some thyme. Also used fresh mushrooms. The thighs were partially frozen, so I cooked for 5 hours and ate it the next day. Be careful not to overcook."

"I really like this recipe, which I serve over brown rice. I sustitute 6-8 oz of fresh mushrooms for the jar of mushrooms."
