I did this recipe a little different and it turned out AMAZING!! First I seared the chicken in a pan on the stove to brown it up a bit (super hot pan...I only let it stay long enough to add color not cook through). I layered the bottom of the crock pot with thinly sliced onions and placed the browned chicken on top and seasoned with salt and pepper. I mixed softened butter with the garlic and added in paprika, ground mustard and italian seasoning (instead of just rosemary) and spread it over the top of the chicken. I poured about 1/4 cup of chicken broth into the spaces around the chicken for more moisture. It turned out so amazing when it was done I took the chicken out (carefully it started to fall apart) and put it aside and used the cooking liquid to flavor some rice! So making this many more times!!

This is a great, easy meal. In the interest of reducing the amount of fattening butter, I used half the amount and mixed it with an equal amount of olive oil. I also added some lemon juice to cut through some of the fat. It turned out yummy!

Everyone seems to love this, but we did not. This is the second time that I tried it because it *seems* like it should be really good. The chicken came out fairly bland (and I used more seasoning than called for) and REALLY REALLY dry. And the second time around, I didn't cook it for even close to the 6 hours in the directions. It basically poached in hot liquid for hours and got very dry. Not a keeper for us.

I was in a bit of a hurry, so I skipped steps 1-4, through all of the ingredients in the crock together, and cooked on high for 4 hours. After 4 hours, I gave it all a stir and turned it on low and cooked for another hour. So, so, SO good! The chicken was fall-apart tender and buttery moist! I made it for a friend who is undergoing chemo treatments so they wouldn't have to cook for a couple of nights, and I'll be making it for my family this week. Absolutely delish!

6 hours would be too long if you don't pre-cook! I seasoned both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper and cooked it in a skillet (with a little olive oil, sliced onions and minced garlic). I cooked the chicken for 2 mins on each side. Put the remaining chopped onions on the bottom of the crockpot and followed the rest of the recipe...oh I used Italian seasoning instead of rosemary and I added a couple of bay leaves. I only cooked the chicken in the crockpot (on high) for 2 hours it was perfectly moist!!

The chicken turned out great. Very moist and fell apart without the aid of a knife. I added red potatoes, red onions, carrots and broccoli. I Got compliments from my very fussy partner, which is a good sign. Next time I plan on reducing the butter to 1/2 cup and maybe browning the chicken first, the dish looked and tasted a little bland. Overall a great Sunday night meal made with minimal effort.

This recipe is great with boneless skinless chicken thighs and cook on high for only 2 hours in the crockspot. Very tender and I'm not a big fan of thighs at all, this is the only way I will eat them. Just cut off as much fat as possible before cooking them in the crockpot. "ENJOY"

one word-DEEELICCIOOOUS! I made the recipe slightly different. I used garlic powder instead of minced garlic. I used italian seasoning which has rosemary in it instead of rosemary. My hubby thought it was good too!
