    Great!I varied the recipe a little and left out the potatos. I use two 14 oz. Kielbasa (Hillshire Farms), 1 large pkg. of Kraut. I grill up the onionsand put them aside, then grill the sliced Kielbasa in the same pan. I put the chicken broth and other ingredients into the pan with some of the Kielbasa, swish it around to get all the bits off the bottom, then throw everything in the crock pot. Leave it on low for the day, and have supper ready when you get home!
