    I wasn't sure about the flavor combination, but it was great! The whole family loved the taste (even the picky ones) and declared it a keeper. We had it over pasta and it was very good. I loved that it was very easy to put together and throw in the slow cooker. I would probably substitute boneless skinless chicken breasts next time (personal preference).

    Definite keeper. Enjoyed the blended flavors of the orange juice, rosemary & cashews.

    My family loves this recipe. I make it often. I sometimes make with brown rice instead of pasta.
