Chicken Merlot with Mushrooms
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 5 hours
I liked the ease of preparation and the fact that it did not take too long to cook (the chicken was over 200 degrees after 4 1/2 hours). It just did not have much "oomph" for me. The flavor profile was good and my family enjoyed it.
Just did not care for at all.
Not the best chicken I have ever tasted. It needed something else, not sure what, to give it some flavor. Sort of blah. In my slow cooker it only took 3 hours at the most; any longer and it would have been mushy. Good idea to check for doneness about half way through the cooking time.
I used 3 boneless, skinless chicken. Very good. No longer than 5 hours on low in my slow cooker. Need the tapioca to make the sauce velvety. Don't leave it out. A keeper.
Very good! Great deep flavor.
I really loved this recipe. I covered it with a hearty sprinkle if Italian blend cheese before serving. Served with side of hot pasta and plenty of crusty Italian bread for sopping up sauce and cheese.
Great! Superb! Amazing! Need I go on. Make it!!
In response to the person who could not find instant tapioca - you need to look in with the instant pudding. Kraft makes a Minute Tapioca in small, Jiffy mix type box.To others wondering about substitutes, I found this tidbit on the 'net:INGREDIENT - 1 Tbls. cornstarch,SUBSTITUTE -2 Tbls. flour or 1 1/3 Tbls. quick-cooking tapioca;INGREDIENT -1 Tbls. flour,SUBSTITUTE - 1/2 Tbls. cornstarch or 2 tsp. quick-cooking tapioca;INGREDIENT -1 Tbls. tapioca,SUBSTITUTE -1 1/2 Tbls. all-purpose flourI am cooking up this dish now. Will write further review once it has been served.
kaela0124 you can substitute cornstarch for tapioca, use half the amount and don't use it until the end of your cooking process. I would mix it with a little cold water before adding it, like you would for gravy.
