I halved this recipe for a four quart slow cooker. Next time I would just half the chicken only, I believe. I had to use pinto beans because that's what I had. It was fine. I also didn't have zesty Italian, just some plain Italian. I feel it needed more flavor, so next time I'll try to get the zesty kind. The rosemary was just the right amount. We'll have this again.

This was oh so good! I doubled the liquid and used Zesty Italian dressing. I also added some mushrooms and extra baby carrots. This is a definite keeper!

I will make this again with a few changes. It was pretty spicy, and we like a lot of pepper. I will reduce it to 1/2 teaspoon. I wonder if the salt and pepper proportions got switched. Otherwise, this was a good recipe. Make sure your chicken breasts are 6 oz as called for in the recipe. Mine were larger, so I had to cook longer and they were dry. Overall, though, an easy and tasty recipe that I will make again.

Excellent recipe. I used a little milk in the recipe for the sauce. It tasted great!

Very good and easy recipe. The carrots and rosemary combined had a sweetish/savory flavor that was very appealing.

I followed the recipe exactly. Waaaaaay too much rosemary! My family ate it but didnt like it. They are not picky eaters. I will not make this dish again.

This was so good and so easy. I only used 2 chicken breasts and dried rosemary. Next time I will cut back on the rosemary and add an extra can of beans. Served it with buttered noodles and it was a real hit!!

I love this recipe ... I added a chopped onion and minced garlic ... which gave it even more flavor.
