This was TERRIBLE! Might be ok if the amount of the spices were cut way down.

Very good. I did not use the browning sauce. I also forgot to start making it in time so I cooked @ 350 for about 70 mins, covered.

very good. next time will omit liquid browning as it gave the dish a rather unpleasant appearance.

I used Italian sausage...nixed the allspice, used fennel seed. Excellent dinner for family or company. I made roasted potatoes as a side dish, and made a chicken potato salad with the leftovers.

I thought the spices were much too strong, no one in my family liked it.

Excellent flavor combination. My family thought it was great. I made it in the oven instead of a crock pot, with the same tender results.

This was a big hit with my husband. The chicken is so flavorful and tender. I did double the sausage the second time I made it, that way there was enough sausage to mix with every bite of chicken. Delicious!

My whole family loved it! The chicken is so tender and flavorful. I did use a few more chicken thighs and it barely served 6 adults (3 males).
