I haven't tried this recipe yet but am planning on fixing it today. I really sounds like a delicious and easy recipe. I think I will add a few less potatoes and add a couple of carrots to it just to give it a little more color since my family likes carrots. It sounds like a winner. I will rate it after I try it.

I used boneless chicken breasts and doubled the liquid. Everyone in the family enjoyed it and I liked how easy it was!

I would make this again, but definitely did not make enough gravy for the amount of food that was cooked.

I LOVE using the slow cooker! Whole chickens can be such a great buy, and the simple ingredients in this recipe are always on hand in my kitchen. The flavors are great and my family loved this dinner! I didn't change a thing. THANKS!

This sounds super good. I have been wondering what to do about the fryer chicken I picked up on sale last week
