Very flavorful dish that turned out quite dry after 5 hours on low setting in crock pot. Next time around I will definitely increase liquid from the recommended 1/4 cup to at least 3/4 cup.

I cut the recipe back to 2 breasts, made the whole portion of sauce. Perhaps cutting the recipe back caused the chicken to be very dry. After reading all the reviews I only cooked it for 4 hours on low but still very dry. Even though I followed the recipe for the liquid amounts the lemon for some reason did not come through.

Yummo, full of flavor and the meat was very tender! I did use 1/2 cup of stock rather than the granules & water because I thought 1/4 cup may have been too little. I think 1/2 cup turned out to be about the minimum to keep it moist because not much liquid came out of the chicken breast. In fact next time I think I'll use 1 cup so a little sauce is left for the rice, it would go really well over the top.
