Edit my Apr 14, 03 review due to spelling. This was a nice flavor combination of lemon and garlic. There was more liquid at the end of the cooking time then was needed. So to compensate I added about 3/4 cup instant rice. I believe I'll cut back on the water the next time I make this by 1/2 cup. Everyone in the family really liked this recipe. Thanks for sharing Conni.
I can't thank you enough for this recipe. It was just wonderful. Nice garlic taste with a hint of lemon. Definately not overpowering. I reduced the liquid as suggested by the previous reviewer and found it was not enough. Had to add some additional during the last half hour. In my crockpot it was done after cooking 6 hours on low.I will be making this often.
Perhaps I cooked it too long, but this didn't turn out well for me. The chicken was very dry and the rice soggy. I also substituted some fat free chicken broth for the water.
