"We really liked this recipe. The chicken was so tender, we didn't even have to use a knife to cut it. The soups make a perfect gravy. Definitely a keeper."

"I'm usually one to agree with most reviewers on this site, but for this one I have to disagree. I made it exactly as written - chicken was very tender as were the veggies - but the flavor of the whole dish was simply, bland. Much more bland than I anticipated. My 1yo son ate it up; Mommy and Daddy chose to eat something else after a small taste."

"I saw this recipe and thought I'd try it since I was having a busy grandbaby day. We're not fond of cooked carrots, so I only put two chopped carrots in. Didn't have chicken breasts so I used chicken tenders. Put my tenders in frozen and cooked on high for one hour. It was done in five hours and very tender and flavorful. Grandbaby gobbled it up and wanted more! Very easy and good recipe! Thanks for sharing!"

"Great recipe! I happened to have Italian seasoned chicken breasts on hand, so I used them. I added a small chopped onion, salt and pepper. The chicken was so tender after about 6 hours it was falling apart, so I just shredded it into large pieces, and it ended up being like a chicken stew! Delish!"

"After reading other reviews, I used a few more potatoes, used crushed garlic instead of garlic salt and added rosemary for flavor. I used season salt and ground pepper on top of the chicken before adding soup. About an hour before serving, I removed the chicken to a platter and covered with foil and then added fresh mushrooms and frozen green beans to pot - turned pot up to high. The chicken was tender and the soup/veggies were very tasty. This is definitely a keeper."

"Just down home cooking that?s fast and easy to prepare. It is more like a stew. I thought it was wonderful and what man doesn?t like gravy? easy and fast to put together the night before. Then refrig. and take it out in the morning for a switch on and go. I also liked the use of the potato flakes for a thickening. May try this trick in some of my stew recipes."
