Used about 4 pounds of bone-in chicken thighs and doubled the rub. Added cubed potatoes to the bottom of a 7 quart slow cooker. Was a little dry, but I might have over-cooked it a bit. Seasoning was fine, nothing extraordinary.

Great recipe . I did the stated amount of rub for the chicken , once on I added a good dusting over top of a pinch of what’s called for . All in all good recipe will make again , simple and easy !

This was dinner tonight. Only 4 hours on Low, and ready to go! Three things: I only had two bone-in chicken breasts, but used the full amount of rub

SOOOO good! I cut potatoes and added to the bottom and put skinless chicken breasts on top. I also did not use browning sauce but added additional chicken stock to help flavor the salt & peppered potatoes. The broth was YUMMY over chicken & potatoes! YUM!

My family enjoyed this. I used bone in chicken thighs since that's what my husband prefers and it wasn't dry at all. It fell off the bone and was very flavorful. I lifted the skin and put the rub underneath the skin which worked out well. I would definitely make this again.

Pretty yummy. I did bone in chicken breasts, and I did not use the browning sauce. The chicken came out moist and held the flavor well. My picky 8 year old daughter ate it, so I'll be making it again, plus I love using my crockpot.

I really liked it after adding 1 tsp of browning sauce instead of 1/2 tsp. I use this seasoning for boneless, skinless and bone-in breasts. The bone-in is usually more flavorful. I cook it for less time when I use boneless, skinless.

Very tasty and so easy! I made a nice gravy with the juices and served the chicken on a bed of rice with peas. Delicious!

I added diced carrots and potatoes. The vegetables had a really good taste but we did not care much for the chicken. None of the flavor penetrated the chicken even though I pierced each piece with a fork, rubbed the seasoning on both top and bottom and let it sit overnight.

My family did not like this recipe. There are much better tasting chicken recipes.
