This was so easy to put together and we thought it tasted super. I loved the lemon figgy flavored sauce. One cup of broth did not cover the chicken in my slow cooker. I added an extra cup and even that didn't quite make it, but I didn't want to add more as I was afraid it would dilute the flavors. Didn't seem to matter. Chicken was very tender and full of flavor. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

Very tasty, liked the mix of chicken and fruit. I did not include Alfredo sauce mix (Jennifer’s review) plus I only used 5 chicken thighs - the ones I had were quite large, could only get 5 in my 12� skillet and 1 cup of broth did not begin to cover them in the crock pot. I ended up using a total of 5 ¼ cups. After 6 hours on low I removed thighs, shredded and returned to the crock pot along with 1 ½ jasmine rice and 1 sliced lemon, covered and cooked for 1 more hour. Prep time was underestimated, but will make again

DBF and I both love this dish. I am making it for the second time today. I am using mission figs because that is what I have. The sauce is so delicious over couscous. I am thinking of making up ig dump bags of this to freeze so that if I have a busy day I can just put one in the crock pot before I go to work.

Really nice recipe with terrific results. This is a great starter recipe for anyone that has not tried meat with fruit yet. The two really do go well together. I did make one major change. I had to leave out the alfredo sauce as when i opened the jar it did not smell right so I opted not to use it, but had started everything else in the recipe. It still came out wonderfully. I used all organic ingredients. I let it cook for 9 hours and I served it over wholewheat couscous. My 4 yr old daugther said "This is to die for!" and I had to agree. Very nice flavors that really completmented each other. Was not overly sweet at all and the lemon gave it a nice, slight tartness to pair nicely with the figs and garlic. Unlike the other reviewer, I thought the "crunchiness" of the fig seeds, which was almost undetectable, was a nice touch to go with the couscous. I would definitly serve this over rice or couscous. This meal stood well enough that I didnt have to serve anything with it and my daughter and I agree that we will make this again and try it with the alfredo sauce. Thank you for sharing this.

This was an unusual, easy and tasty dish. The chicken had a marvelous flavor from the combination of seasonings and the sweetness of the figs. I served it over couscous and it absorbed the delicious sauce. I would have given it 5 stars for flavor but unfortunately I did not like the crunchiness of the seeds from the figs. Thanks for a delicious and interesting dish KelBel.
