Sunday Chicken Supper

I make this slow-cooked sensation with chicken, vegetables and seasonings. It's a hearty, homespun dish that satisfies the biggest appetites. —Ruthann Martin, Louisville, Ohio

    I changed it up a bit and followed some of the suggestions from other people that tried it. I also put in some tapioca granules to help thicken it. I skipped the green beans. I spread a packet of chive and onion dressing mix over the chicken instead of chicken bouillon, added garlic powder, poultry seasoning, skipped the salt, but mixed some Better Than Bouillon in with the water and then added some white wine. I also let it cook on low for closer to 9 hours. The chicken was falling apart and super flavorful

    This is in response to Barry: Usually 6 to 8 hours in a crock pot you want to use the low setting and if you cook it for 4 hours use the high setting. I agree it should say this on the recipe for someone new to using crock pots. I'm going to try this recipe out tomorrow and see how it tastes.

    Eliminated the salt to cut down on sodium. Used white wine instead of bouillon to cut down on salt. Increased non salt spices to increase flavor. Added garlic powder and poultry seasoning.

    Followed recipe as written except I added 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder and used chicken Better than bullion. It just wasn't that good, will not make again.

    I throw all the ingredients in my crock pot when I get up for church & it's ready when we get home! The house smells amazing & the taste is delightful! I make cornbread muffins as a side! I make a packet of chicken gravy to drizzle on the top of the chicken & veggies.

    You can get rid of so much of the sodium by using chicken broth and I bet the flavor would be woderful

    Made this tonight for dinner. The only thing extra I added was bay leaves and some garlic. However, it was EXTREMELY bland. I tried to spice up the gravy at least but not even that could save the mess that was the chicken. It was so bland my 2 children (5 and 6) didn't even want to eat it. I don't know what I'm going to do with the leftovers as none of us have any desire to eat it ever ever again! I'm sorry but I have no clue what the other reviews see or taste in this. Was a sore disappointment of a dinner. I feel like I need to go make another dinner to make up for the sad tastebuds around this house.

    While visiting my daughter, I put together this recipe which we enjoyed following a fun afternoon out with friends. This delicious dish greeted us with a wonderful aroma when we got back to the house. Now that I'm back home, I'm going to make this dish again for this Sunday. The seasonings were just right. We did make the recipe with fresh green beans as specified, but this time I am going to try using frozen cut green beans instead.
