I got this recipe from Mr. Food the other day on TV. I made the following modifications but it was wonderful. I threw everything in the crockpot & I used a cut up chicken. I also added a can of chicken broth--only because I was using the crockpot & I used a sweet potato also which made the vegetable mixture a bit larger. Anyways, this came out great. The chicken was tender & juicy and the spices were really great on the chicken. I made it for my mom & stepfather and they really enjoyed it.
