Hi, I'm the originator of this recipe, which won #1 place in a cooking magazine back in 2003. I want to thank you all for your helpful comments, and make a couple of suggestions. Most definitely, slow cookers are cooking hotter these days, and I would change the setting from HIGH to LOW for 3-4 hours. Cooking on high now will definitely dry up the sauce. Also, the magazine editor suggested using apple juice if you don't care for wine. I was not for that, and suggest using low-sodium chicken broth instead. Thanks!

I used chopped fresh tarragon, baby carrots and Chinese Xiaoxing cooking wine and set my 5 quart crock pot to low for 5 hours and left for the day. When I came home it was absolutely wonderful. The vegetables were still a bit crunchy (not at all mushy) and the chicken was perfect. A definite keeper. Thanks!

Awesome! We loved it! It is definitely a new favorite. We served it over popcorn rice. (Which is a treat in itself!)
