Braunda, I threw all the ingredients for this into the crockpot and went out into the beautiful spring air today and had an excellent chicken dinner waiting for me on my return! The chicken is so tender with this recipe that it simply falls off the bones! I served it with mashed potatoes and Bergy's Stir Fried Asparagus with Mushrooms Stir Fried Asparagus With Mushrooms, and a crisp green tossed salad. Delicious and simple! What more could you ask? Thank you so much, Braunda, for sharing this recipe with all of us on Zaar!

This was great! I added an extra 1 1/2 tsp flour, because of brau's stern admonishment to watch the fat (I prepared this in the oven), and it came out fantastic. Kudos to Brau! Now if only we could see more turtle recipes......

I don't know which was better, the recipe the first time or the hot chicken and gravy open-faced sandwiches the next day. I used mushroom garlic soup as only kind I had on hand. In doing so I did not add more garlic.

Perfect for a Sunday dinner! If you really want to watch the fat content you can use Campbells Cream of Mushroom and skim milk. I did increase the flour to 2 1/2 tablespoons to thicken it since I used skim milk. It didn't compromise the taste at all. I love using my Crock pot and this was a great recipe for it! Thanks!

I added a can of cr. of chicken soup also. My husband and I both loved it. He told me I could make it anytime. It was very tender and tasty.

Fast, easy and very tasty meal. Perfect for these hot days here. It was a snap to put together. My kids loved it, even my 16 month old. Served it over buttered egg noodles, and had steamed brocolli and a salad. Great dinner. Thank you for this one!

This is such a good tasty and easy meal! I halved the recipe because it is just the 2 of us- did not change a thing (used chicken breasts though). We had ours over egg noodles. Thanks so much for sharing- We will be having this again soon! Thanks!!!

Very good. I used 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked them on high for 4 hours. I took meat out and shredded it - no effort at all as the chicken was very tender. The sauce was not as thick as we prefer so, before adding the meat back, I followed another's advice and made a beurre manie (had no clue what that is so I looked it up and it is a mixture of flour and butter... I used 2T each... kneaded together and added to sauce). I also added some sour cream - I didn't measure but it was probably 1/4 cup or so. We served over rice but I think it would be delicious over egg noodles. Thank you.

Braunda, we really loved this chicken! I followed your recipe exactly. Cooked for 5 hours on high. It was so tender and the gravy was delicious! We had it with fresh sauted spinach and steamed carrots with ginger. Great! Thanks!!

I usually make this in my electric skillet,,first breading the chicken, fry quickly on both sides then the rest of the recipe is the same. I wasn't going to be home to watch the skillet, so used this method and it is very good. The chicken so tender, gravy made, was a good dinner that my dh and I liked very much. Followed the exact recipe, had no problems, turned out as stated. I used the thighs, legs and breast from a whole chicken, removing what bone I could and removed all the skin. Thanks for posting, this a a keeper recipe for us!!
