Tried this recipe and I did read some reviews before trying it.  I traded the chicken broth for apple juice at a suggestion from one reviewer and I covered the chicken with rosemary and thyme before starting up the crock pot to add flavor.  Also I cut the apples and onions into large pieces.  At the end of the day, the flavor was good and the chicken came right off the bone.  However it was like eating an old New England boiled dinner.  Will have to pass on this recipe from now on. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent. We put ours on Parmesan pasta to give it a cheesy flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to make, however, while tasty the flavor is not exciting. It needs some oomph.... My wife on the other hand thoroughly enjoyed. One addition, a little sage in the rice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I can boil chicken in about 35 minutes, this was about the same as boiled chicken, no reason to wait 4+ hours for it. Will not do it again for sure. !!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe was super easy. The chicken was super moist as it is with most slow cooker recipes. It was a good dish but not a great dish. It was a little too bland for our liking. I made it exactly to the recipe. I probably won't be making it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this dish tonight for my family and they absolutely loved it. My chicken was very moist and tender and the apples and onions were perfect. I will try this again but I wouldnt recommend the white rice, it does nothing to enhance this dishes . item not reviewed by moderator and published
We thought it was delicious, but I didn't use the rice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ty for a very good recipe its my first effort at slow cooking and Im very pleased with the result ..hope its not just beginners luck:...5 hours cooking was a little too long for my liking-chicken was a tad dry- but all the same very good recipe and great result. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was very disappointed. I read a lot of the reviews since it seems everyone either loves it or doesn't. I added cut potatoes to the bottom of crock pot to keep the apples from getting mushy like one reviewer suggested- that was great. I also added apple juice in place of the chic stock like another reviewer mentioned. I also cut up celery and added that too. The dish overall was very bland. I would not make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh my this was a delicious meal! I made brown rice and it was a perfect compliment. The aroma was mouthwatering and the flavor did not disappoint! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Chicken was flavorful, not dried out. Because of a complete aversion to using anything canned I substituted chopped celery, and slightly thickened cream for the cream of celery soup. The pungency had been cooked out of the onions, but the crunch remained. Very satisfying. The rice is a must to soak up the liquid, but try pita chips as well. Also for a very complete meal toss arugala and spinach into the pot at the last minute. The peppery arugula counterpoints the sweetness of the apples. Great recipe if you are in a hurry, or want a meal ready to eat when you get home from work. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I'm trying this for the first time, I don't usually do exacts, but, I did with this. We will see I will let you know what happens! I'm making it for my husband and in-laws to night for dinner. Cross your fingers. I'll keep you posted. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this was very bland. I also tried to jazz it up - but it was an unmitigated disaster. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed the recipe and found it to be very bland. I even reduced the amount of chicken broth and added an extra apple. There was not enough flavoring for me. I don't know if cream of celery soup would be the best match for this particular recipe. I won't be making it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband & I like this recipe. I use chicken thighs as they hold up better and stay moist. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this the other day and made some of the alterations suggested in previous reviews. I added some diced red potatoes to the bottom of the crock pot. This kept my apples from going to mush. I also reduced the broth to 3/4 cup and added a full can of cream of celery and a full can of cream of chicken. The result was pretty good and wasn't bland because I liberally salted and peppered and used fresh rosemary. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The one thing I look for is easy, easy and more easy..and this was one of those meals...and yet it was very tastey. I bought the apples already peeled and cut, the bought the onions already cut up at foodtown, two chicken breasts that I cut in half, threw in the can of broth and a can of cream of celery soup....I mean, come on...oh yeah, I used the 10 minute rice in the microwave..AND DONT FORGET TO USE THE SLOW COOKER LINER FOR EASY CLEAN UP item not reviewed by moderator and published
While the chicken was really moist and juicy - the rest of the dish fell somewhat flat. All that was left from the apples were the skins. The broth left over had some decent flavor, but again, the dish just didn't come together for my husband and I. It wasn't bad - but it wasn't something I'd keep in my recipe file. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this recipe was delicous. Key is using fresh rosemary and when it was done I added cornstarch to thicken the broth. I am keeping this one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Would not recommend at all. We made this last night and it was awful. The chicken was bland and the apples were beyond mushy. My wife and I ended up putting barbecue sauce on the chicken to give it SOME flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Would liked to have been able to taste the apples but could not. Recipe was very easy to make though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw this on tv last week and despite the less than stellar ratings decided to try it! I made it exactly as the recipe stated and bland is an understatement- it did smell good- 1/2 hour before serving I checked it and decided it was tooooo bland! I added 4 tbsp dijon mustard and some lawrys seasoning salt (2 tbsp-it was that flavorless! It jazzed it up enough to eat- but the apples were more like applesauce- I will not make it again- i love to play with recipes and use recipes more as a guideline- rarely do I follow a recipe in order- I'm not sure this one could be saved! Oh- the chicken was very moist! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe the day after seeing it on television. I basically made it per the recipe except that I braised my chicken pieces before putting them in the crock pot. Since I almost always use garlic I seasoned my chicken pieces with S&P and garlic as well. I did use the apples but they totally cooked away and I even cut them in thick slices. Next time I make this I will still add the apple but perhaps just slice in quarters. I had company for dinner and they too loved it. A simple meal to put together. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sometimes Robin's recipes are small portions for my family, so I doubled the onions and apples, used two green and two red apples, added sliced garlic cloves. I replaced the chicken stock and cream of celery canned soup with 1/2 cup of apple juice (no sugar added) So, I just used my mandolin, sliced the onions and apples and garlic into the pan. put salt and pepper on the chicken, layered it on top of the veggies. Then I just poured apple juice over the top. OH MY GOSH. I couldn't believe we ate the whole thing, though I thought I had made enough for lunch the next day. LOVE IT! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read all the previous comments and changed a few things. I added extra rosemary, some garlic and lemon zest. I also added some corn starch near the end of cooking to thicken the liquid. The chicken just fell apart and the apples got mushy. I ended up throwing the rice into the crock pot with the chicken/apple goo and served it as a thick "soup"ish thing. I didn't even finish what I served myself and threw out all the leftovers. Don't make this. item not reviewed by moderator and published
it smelled amazing...looked amazing.....the taste was disappointing. the flavors were too subtle and overall it was just too moist--the consistency and textures were all the same--wet...the chicken was moist though! (but what else do you expect when it's in a slow cooker) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a great meal! This was my first time using my crockpot and I will definitely continue to use it! I did change somethings... I used a can of cream of mushroom, and used a whole can of cream of celery! I only used a half a cup of chicken broth and added 1/4 cup of dry white wine! I also added some garlic and butter! I left the skin on the applesm I used a Gala and a Granny Smith! The skin stayed on most of the apples, which made the dish look very colorful! I cooked it on high for 2 and half hours and the chicked was so tender! I would like ot try it with mash potatoes next time! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my family last Friday and they loved it -- even my dad who is an amazing cook. It was a very warming and winter-y dish and made my apartment smell delicious! i will definitely be make this again. I think I might even use an extra apple next time! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I loved this. However, it didn't take as long to cook! item not reviewed by moderator and published
found this recipe very bland and visualy unappetizing! didnt have celery so i made it with mushroom soup which i did not think would be a deal breaker. i even added a little sugar for the apples as suggested. sorry to say but it went in the trash. who ever made this and had it turn out well must have truely doctored it up. avoid this one. there has to be another recipe you can make tonight. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read all of the comments on here and decided to try the recipe as is before, and I thought it was fantastic. I was skeptical about the apples, but they add a lot of flavor, and the whole thing was delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am gluten and lactose intolerant--difficult but not impossible to overcome. My question is about the canned soups mentioned (cream of celery & mushroom). I haven't tasted my attempt yet (still cooking) but used coconut milk as my 'cream of'' ingredient. What else could I add that would replace the seasonings in these canned soups? Oh, also, I cannot have corn, so anything with corn starch, corn syrup, etc is out, which is most all processed foods. This is all new to me and I have a family with 3 hungry boys...just trying to make it work for all of us. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
after reading 20-25 reviews, I cannot wait to try this and won't be afraid to improvise also. sound like all good tips. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So easy and with a few additions it was a wonderful dinner to have waiting. I read the other reviews and I made the following changes. I used a whole can of cream of mushroom soup and a whole can of cream of celery soup, only 1/2 cup chicken stock, 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind, 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper and added 6 carrots cut into 2 inch chunks. My apples did not disintegrate, I used Pink Lady apples-what I had on hand. I cut them in fairly large slices. I served with small boiled red potatoes, it would be good served over wide egg noodles too.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe exactly to specs except for the onions. I used a sweet onion along with Granny Smith apples and it really turned out delicious. My family really loved it. I peeled the apples and they did get mushy but I believe that is the whole point, that they are just used for flavor and boy do they deliver the flavor. The whole dish really came together for me and I will be doing this one in my rotation a lot from now on. Very easy to do and very very tasty. Loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm glad I read other reviews too - I always learn alot of good tips. I added diced red potatoes, carrots and celery, and the crushed red pepper, but stayed with 1 can of Cream of Chicken soup and about 3 cups of Chicken Broth. I know... too much broth!! It turned out to be soup! But its still really good, especially served over brown rice. BTW I only cooked it on the High setting of my crock pot for 2 hours, and that was plenty of time to cook everything through. In fact, this way I still had some consistency in the apples. When served over the rice it isn't too soupy (but I still ate it with a spoon!). item not reviewed by moderator and published
Holy cow! I found the recipe, then set about reading others' reviews. I'm thankful that I did; I made some changes and it is FAR from bland, or "blah"...! I cut the broth in half, added a can of cream of mushroom, some carrots, garlic, crushed red pepper, lemon peel, sea salt... and was generous with the rosemary! I served it over smashed red potatoes (w/butter, garlic and parsley in them)..... wow. Nobody was disappointed! I would most definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did take most of the previous suggestions, it turned out good, and differnt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great taste. Next time I'll add celery, potatoes and carrots. I added a touch of Thyme and Sage. MacIntosh apples disintegrated, which was fine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was super easy recipe that you can modify to your tastes. Very flexible. Made the following changes: 1) Added 1 can cream of mushroom and 1 can of cream of celery 2) Cut the broth to 1/2 cup 3) Added thyme with the rosemary 4) Used cooking apples with skins on. Though the apples still disintegrated - will peel them next time. 5) Made with pork - would be just as good with chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the easiest, classy recipe ever! It is also great if you cut up red potatoes and put them in the bottom (instead of serving with rice). item not reviewed by moderator and published
I ADDED CHOPPED CHIVES, FRESH SAGE AND IN TH BROTH I ADDED WHITE WINE, ONE LIME JUICE AND 1/4 CUP OF HEAVY CREAM. WOW, THE BROTH IS YUMMY AND ROUND 2 I CAN MAKE DUMPLINGS AND MAKE A SOUP. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I lost this recipe some time ago. I had one very similiar that was in Cooking Light when it was first published. The only difference was that is called for frozen boneless skinless chicken breast. You put the chicken right in the crock pot from the freezer.They explained it is put in frozen because it breaks down to quickly otherwise.no bones to pick out this way. Great Recipe.

I've made this recipe many times and we love it. It is even better the next day when the flavors have had a chance to mix. I've made this for several people who have asked for the recipe. I can't understand anyone not liking this great dish. I also serve it on brown rice, but have served it with mashed potatoes. I sometimes thicken it at the end if it is too thin. item not reviewed by moderator and published

The longest part of putting this recipe together is chopping up 2 tbsp of fresh rosemary, but it's definitely worth it. The rest was easy and quick and it was easy to put this meal together. Not to mention very delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Everybody commented on the great smells as soon as they walked in the door. Everyone got up for seconds, they were only upset that I didn't make enough rice to pour all the extra sauce that was left over in the cooker. I used 6 skinless Breast fillets and 6 drum sticks with skin, 3 apples, a whole onion diced, an envelope of Lipton Onion mix, a green bell pepper and additional creole seasoning. The sauce was as the recipe called for it. Chicken broth and the cream of celery. I served it with white rice and oven roasted zucchini with olive oil, garlic salt and red pepper flakes. I will be making this one again for sure! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I'm so happy I read the reviews for this recipe before cooking it for my family. Took everyones advise and found it to be very good. Thicker apples, leave the skins on....they didn't dissolve at all. I also put a little sugar on them as recommended. I did a can of cream of celery and cream of mushroom. UnbeIeavably I didn't have any chicken broth in my pantry (oops!) i used a half cup of milk instead. I also added some crushed red pepper for some spice to counter the sweetness. Really liked the results. The only thing I will change next time I make this recipe.....no chicken...all pork. Seems to be a better match. Enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Being in Phoenix, AZ, the slow cooker is a good piece of kitchenware to have and I use mine often. I watch this show every morning and I have to be honest ... this is the first recipe I've seen Robin do that I wanted to try. I used boneless, skinless breasts and a full can of cream of celery soup. I didn't chop the rosemary up and mix it in because I'm not a big fan of rosemary, so I just laid the full sprigs on top of the chicken so we could take them out later. We absolutely LOVED this recipe served with white rice. I do think we'll add another apple and maybe use basil instead of rosemary next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow, I really loved this recipe. Didn't really change much but it being Vidallia season I used 3 onions and 3 apples. I also added some and some sage. The apple completely disintegrated so in the future I might hold some apple out until later in the cooking process (I don't like cooked skin so leaving the skin on isn't an option) It has sort of a sweet taste which is probably a combination of the apple and sweet onions. I was hesitant to use a whole cut up chicken as I usually only cook with boneless skinless breast but I think the bone really added to the "finger licking" sauce. I did of course remove the skin and cut some fat off the chicken before I put it in because on TV the skin on it looked nasty when she was done with it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Visually unappetizing and blah flavor - my husband says throw that recipe out! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this recipe was really good. I think it's pretty hard to mess up a chicken recipe. I added celery, carrots, fresh garlic and a bay leaf. I also threw in a little cognac to the soup mixture. The flavors went well with the apples. I would definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This makes a very interesting looking dish; however, the taste was bland. I used granny smith apples which added a hint of flavor, but otherwise it was a very boring dinner. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading and taking the advice of other reviewers, this slow cooker recipe is one I will make often. I sprinkled about a tbsp. of sugar over the (skin-on Granny Smith) apples and onions, added a few sprigs of thyme with the rosemary, and used 2 cans of soup whisked with half as much chicken broth...all as recommended by previous reviewers. Slicing the apples in about 2" slices helped them retain shape and texture. Next time I am going to use pork chops or pork loin in place of the chicken as the flavors really lend itself to a pork dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is great. There were a few changes and additions that I made after reading the reviews though. The feedback was great- and by utilizing some of the changes suggested, the meal gets 5 stars from me!!! 1) Leaving the peels on the apples is a great idea. However, I think that some people may have had trouble from not using cooking apples. I specifically picked Jonathan apples because they are a favorite in pies and cooking. The flesh is a little more dense and the taste is a little more tart in these apples. a huge bonus is that the peels of this apple are a deep red, which really added color to the dish. 2) I added about a tablespoon of sugar sprinkled across the onions and apples before the chicken went in. 3) I used a can of cream of mushroom soup WITH a can of cream of celery and cut the broth to a half a cup. 4) I used boneless skinless breasts. 5) I used about a tsp. of thyme and 5 sprigs of fresh rosemary not chopped but simply rolled in my palms and tossed straight into the pot. This added color and when I served the dish everyone had a sprig of rosemary across the top of their breast that really added to the color and the presentation. 6) I did not have rice and forgot to pick it up at the store, so I made the broth a bit thicker by adding a little cornstarch disolved in cool water to the pot to thicken the sauce into a gravy. A HUGE hit over the mashed potatoes. The result was an aromatic dish that won favor at the low key dinner party that I hosted. It was such a hit that everyone asked for the recipe. For a crockpot recipe, this is a very refined dish. Its something exciting and new that most haven't tasted. In fact everyone was surprised that it was such a simple crockpot meal. This is EASILY a new comfort food for my family and friends and I. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the best recipe I've gotten off foodnetwork.com!!! The chicken soooo tender and delicious. I left the peels on the apples and I put in LOTS of rosemary and tyme and fresh black pepper in. I also used skinless boneless breast. I used brown rice also. I highly recommend this recipe and I hope to make it again soon. My Family LOVED it also!! The people that wrote bad reviews either have horrible taste or are horrible cooks. item not reviewed by moderator and published

FIve star. Very few easy steps. Awesome results. The chicken fell right off the bones and had a great flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading the reviews, I seasoned the chicken with sage, thyme, salt and pepper. I used Cream of Mushroom with Roasted Garlic soup with evaporated milk and chicken broth. I also used chicken thighs. Also after reading about the mushy apples, I left the skins on and after the chicken was cooked, I used a stick blender to blend the apples to make it more of a gravy and served it over jasmine rice. My husband loved it. Great for the fall. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had 5&1/2 Lbs. of chix bought on sale @ 88 cents/Lb. It was easy to prepare and the house smelled like the holidays. I serve it with spanish rice which is more flavorfull than white rice but no more expensive. It also made good left-overs. As for the blandness and mushy apples, not a problem. Just add apples later on and any spices you like. Someone suggested garlic, and also green apples (granny smith). Be creative. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The house smelt wonderful, wish I could say the same about the appearance and the taste of this dish. Think abouit, white chicken, white onions, white apples, white soup - - -NO COLOR!! I could tell when it was 1/2 done what a mushy mess it was but what do you do then? This one is a pass and won't be cooked again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The house smelled great, but the chicken was bland, and the apples got mushy. Overall a dissapointment. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the the recipie to letters But added more salt and sugar, i used a little sugar to bring the sweetness of the apples more. My husband and i liked it, i will make it again but about long but its not a recpie you will want to make very often, the meal have a a little sweet creamy light taste to it so if you like many seasoning in food this is definatly not something for you. Its a special meal and either you like it or you hate it. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Living in Chandler (Phoenix), AZ, I am a big fan of slow cooker dishes, especially during the summer. This is a good dish for a small crowd and I would definitely make it again. Using Granny Smith apples makes it not too sweet. I might add a little garlic to the mix next time; it goes well with a salad and bread. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This chicken rocks! I used red apples and left the skins on so that the apples wouldn't fall apart. I also used bone-in SKINLESS chicken thighs. While it was cooking I left the tops of the thighs meaty side up and slightly above the liquid, this allowed the flavor to intensify on the chicken. I served it with Jasmine rice, which was the perfect compliment to the light flavors of the chicken and apples. My whole family loved this meal!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love my slow cooker and this recipe reminds my why. The only different things I did was I used chicken breast and I didn't have rosemary so I may have altered the taste a bit. I also added sage and thyme because I just can't cook with celery without adding these great spices. I served this with brown rice and my entire family LOVED it! It smelled like holiday-time in my house! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did not like this recipe at all. It was much too bland, the consistency was like mush, and the chicken and apples didn't work together very well. I am disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My boyfriend and i just moved in together over Thanksgiving. We both have busy schedules but he does so much for me that I make a huge effort to have a home cooked meal for him most nights during the week. I purchased a slow cooker to accomplish this goal. I make big meals on the weekend that can be eaten throughout the week. This recipe was so delicious. Of course I added some of my own personal touches, like tons of garlic. I tried to get him to help by peeling the apples but he has never peeled anything before. That was funny. Some things us girls have to do ourselves if we want it done right. This was a perfect recipe and very yummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading the reviews I was a little hesitant about making this dish. I didn't want to dislike it because it sounded so delicious. So I put my thinking cap on and came up with this variation...I seasoned the chicken w salt/pepper (to my liking) prior to putting them in the s.cooker. Instead of using 1 cup of Chicken Broth...I used Apple Juice, and instead of using 1/2 cup of Cream of Celery...I used Cream of Chicken. I reduced the rosemary to a tablespoon so that it didn't overpower the chicken. Now as I was eating this meal I appreciated how soft the flavors were. Everyone says this recipe is bland and needs more spices. NO...You have to realize that this isn't supposed to be a heavily flavored dish. It's supposed to be light and delicate. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ok, after reading all the reviews and reading the ingredients list I decided to make a few modifications to this recipe & it turned out FABULOUS! My family devoured it! I used 2 large granny smith apples peeled & quartered. (They tend to not get mushy) 5 boneless/skinless chicken breasts Added the following ingredients: 2 Sweet Potatoes/yams cut into large cubes 4 stalks celery cut into large pieces 4-5 cloves minced or chopped garlic 1 T. Fresh thyme chopped 1 T. Fresh Sage chopped Instead of using the chicken broth & cream of celery soup, I used 1 c. white wine instead. Cook on HIGH for 4 - 4 1/2 hours. Scoop out juice into a saucepan, heat to boiling on stove & add 1/8 t. - 1/4 t. cinnamon. Thicken with cornstarch & water mixture (approx. 1 T. cornstarch to 1/2 c. hot water). Serve with chicken & vegetable/fruit mixture. I am telling you, my family devoured it and wanted more after we were done (I cooked 5 chicken breasts for a family of 4 and it wasn't enough! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe seems to be missing a lot. So little flavor. After reading similar reviews, I added more of pretty much everything (herb-wise) for more flavor, and it didn't help. The apples and onions were inedible, they were so mushy. If we made this again, I would change pretty much everything. A miss. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you for this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to prepare, great aroma, tasty. The only thing i would like to change is the onions are kind of mushy and that the chicken could use a little more kick, but other then that its great and my boyfriend LOVES it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This smelled so good while it cooked. What a shame because it was actually tasteless. The chicken just tasted like chicken. NO flavor. I guess if you enjoy the taste of unseasoned plain chicken this would be good, but not for me. The apples turned to mush but the sauce and apples and onions weren't bad over the rice. My husband actually enjoyed it. He will tell me if a new recipe is worth making again. My kids wouldn't touch the chicken and they love chicken. I guess it all depends on how much you like bland food. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used this as a base recipe for a slow cooker pork roast. I added some potatoes, but everything else was the same. I cooked it on the long end (~8 hours on low) because I had more meat than called for in this recipe (had to have leftovers for pulled pork sandwiches). The meat was so tender and flavorful. The rosemary actually stuck with the meat and could still be tasted through the bbq sauce of the pulled pork dish. I will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The apples really save this dish. The chicken comes out kinda tasteless (not a bad taste, just like it needs something), so when you take a bite of chicken with a bite of apple on the same fork it tastes very yummy. Chicken barely done at 8 hours on low, so kept it on low for another 30 minutes just to be sure. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this a few days ago. It turned out delicious. In fact, I've added it to my food blog (with a pic)...here's the link: http://sugarandspice-celeste.blogspot.com/2008/01/slow-cooker-chicken-with-rosemary.html The rosemary added a nice flavor and made the entire house smell very inviting. The chicken fell right off of the bone. We made some yummy sandwiches with the leftover chicken...topped with shredded mozarella cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just received a slow cooker for Christmas and decided to put some recipes on Food Network's website to use. I used this recipe as my first. Food was really good, the liquid was amazing. Wish the chicken was a quite bit more seasoned, but overall good meal. I can't wait to make more slow cooker recipes! :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Apples & onions were too mushy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great base recipe. I added garlic and sliced fennel, then a TINY bit of cream in the end - it was delicious. Leftovers were terrific is a pot pie!! Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I took 2 bone-in chicken breasts with the skin on them and placed them in the bottom of the crock pot. i seasoned them, added 1 cup of chicken broth, a buillon cube, bay leaves, rosemary, onion, celery, carrots, and potatoes. I seasoned the rest of the mixture, keeping a heavier hand on the salt especially because over time it disappears. I added two Granny Smith apples and one red apple 30 minutes before the end and it came out savory and perfect. Skip the cream of celery - 1 cup of liquid is more than enough for any crock pot recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
