VERY nice stew, and so easy to make too! I used baby carrots and just tossed them in whole, apple juice instead of cider, and red wine vinegar instead of cider vinegar; all of these substitutions were made because of ingredients I had on hand. I doubled the apples as suggested, and for the chicken I actualy just cubed up some chicken that was left over from yesterday's supper. Everything came out very tender (even the chicken, which I was afraid would be too dry after essentially being cooked twice), and the taste is absolutely to die for. I think this recipe will definitely be going into a regular rotation here. Thank you for a great recipe!

I made this tonight. I substituted regular potatoes with sweet potatoes. I used boiling onions in the bottom of the slow cooker. It IS bland like other reviews said, I added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to spices mix. Very delicious, will do again! Needs toasted bread with it !

This is a Taste of Home recipe. I used one apple per the original recipe. The stew was very chunky with just a little broth. I think it could stand more broth with a little thickener. Seasoning was just right for my taste.

This was an ok recipe. Pretty bland, needs some more spices or something to shake it up a bit. I really thought the apples would do something to help, but they just kind of melted away.

Good recipe that I will make again and I am very happy to have something new and different in my crock pot repertoire. I found this searching for recipes to use up apple cider I have leftover from the holidays. I did not have the celery or caraway seed on hand. I added 3/4 teaspoon of celery seed. Thanks for sharing!

Good recipe - LOVED the caraway seeds - gave it a very unique flavor. Next time I'll use 2 apples as I didn't taste much apple flavor with just one. Thanks for posting. I'm always looking for quick and easy low-fat recipes.

Loved the caraway seeds. Very flavorful but not overpowering. I didn't precook the chicken and it still turned out great. I also added more apple because they're so good in the stew.

Very Good and "delicate" stew -- not spicy at all. Was very welcoming to come home to after a cold, rainy day. A nice fall dish!

This was delicious! I made some changes based on ingredients on hand. Used chicken broth instead of apple cider, but added some natural applesauce. I also left out the caraway seeds. I made this for 1 serving in my tiny crockpot. I didn't pre-cook the chicken, just threw it all together and it turned out great. Thank you!
