I used skinned, boneless breast filets and cooked on low for about 3 hours. Chicken was overcooked, a bit dry. Flavor is wonderful. I added baby carrots for the last hour but had to steam them separately to get them soft. When I make this again I will cook smaller pieces of chicken for a shorter time, maybe 2 hours. The taste is great and the recipe is just so easy!

We liked it, but the recipe is a little confusing. My chicken breasts are not 12 ounces - not even close. So the cooking time is too long. I would suggest with the smaller chicken breasts to cook only about 2 1/2 hours. Mine was done at that point. Much longer and it dries out.

Recipe looks good, but you lost me at the nutrition breakdown. There is no way 12oz of chicken with all that extra flavoring is only 336 calories. It is AT LEAST 200 calories more

Made according to recipe, except I used vegetable stock in place of the water to add more flavor. AMAZING!!! This is my new favorite chicken recipe! (even better than fried in my book)

Followed recipe as written, so pleased I did. Wonderful flavor, moist, just mouth-watering. During last hour of cooking, I added baby carrots to cook, during the last ten minutes I added noodles. Everything was saturated with that wonderful lemon , garlic flavor. A definite keeper.
