This turned out pretty good. My DH thought it could use more heat...but I really enjoyed it. Made for PAC Spring 2014

Very good crock pot recipe. I used chicken tenderloins because I HATE handling raw chicken! I took them right from the freezer with good results. Just cooked on high for about 2 hours before moving to low. I also topped the served bowls with some low fat colby/jack shredded cheese. It's a flavorful recipe as is but I could see this being a great base to play with as I get more confident in my cooking. Warm and filling and healthy - perfect.

I agree that this is flavorful as written which my husband liked. (I added some chopped jalapeno to mine as a garnish.) Instead of using the crock pot, I sauteed the onions and garlic in a little oil then added the broth, spices, and chicken and cooked it for about 45 minutes before proceeding with Step 5. It was very good and even better as leftovers when all the flavors came together even more. Thanks for posting.
