This is a hearty meal in one that's easy and can be cooking all day while you are out. It makes a crowd-pleasing crock full, and I usually cut it in half.

This was excellent. We enjoyed it very much. I fixed it for the first time a couple of weeks ago as written. I am going to make this today on the stove top. Thanks for a great recipe.

My family really loved this! It was a perfect dish for a fall weeknight. The ingredients all worked together perfectly and shared their flavors. I used about 1/2 teaspoon of caraway seeds but could have added a bit more. Apple juice would work well if chicken broth wasn't available. Thanks for a dish that will become a family standard! Made for My 3 Chefs. ThanKs!!
