"This was just ok. I enjoyed the lemon flavor with the chicken, just not the veggies."

"Light sauce which i appreciated, but the chicken needs to be submerged in the sauce while cooking, and its a little plain. Good, but I would rather spend time trying new recipes instead of this one again."

"This was very good but will make a few changes next time. More lemon juice as the lemon flavor was practically non-existent and cut the thyme in half as that was overpowering. I used 4 big still partially frozen bone-in chicken breasts which were perfect for 4 adults and left the skin on. The meat was tender and juicy - absolutely perfect! As others stated the sauce was more of a juice so I thickened it with a little cornstarch. This is a keeper as the aroma was mouthwatering when I walked in the door after work!"

"It smelled wonderful when we walked into the house at the end of the day! And we found it quite tasty! I had used golden mushroom soup, and I liked the result. It did not seem too salty. We thought the sauce added a lot to the dinner, helping to moisten the chicken. I might not serve this to special guests but it's a great family dish."

"Not one of your better offerings. The lemon flavor was overpowering. The juice (there is no way you can call it gravy) was very salty and I did not add the salt called for in the recipe."

"I made this as follows- 3 chicken breasts(6 won't fit in my cooker) broth in place of water, zest of 2 lemons plus their juice, 1/4 of a sweet onion, garlic minced(2cloves) used cream of chicken and mushroom, Italian seasoning, thyme and lots of black pepper. No salt added( enough with the liquids) I agree that breasts are usually dry- I will prob sub. thighs or legs next time, but with the left over chicken I can make chicken salad."

"Sorry to put a damper on this recipe, but it LOOKS bland. There are too many other recipes I want to try, to make this one."

"The basic recipe is great but as written it deserves perhaps 2 stars. chicken breast is one of the driest, most tasteless pieces of flesh in the world. Cooking bone in breasts for 8 to 9 hours will produce somewhat moist sawdust and a plethora of natural toothpicks. Use skinless, boneless thighs. Season as you like and brown in a hot pan in a bit of olive oil,THEN, add to the pot with the rest of the ingredients. Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours hours. It's not better than sex but it's a good substitute. Just serve with your favourite sides and enjoy"

"I am very "concrete sequential". Should the second group of ingredients be poured on top of the chicken before cooking? It doesn't indicate what to do with it."
