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!

Came out pretty good but just a bit bland for me. Next time I will try bumping the spices up by adding a chicken boullion cube and some garlic and powders.

My family thought this was ok. I added a cup of chicken broth as Spencer #2 recommended. There won't be any gravy if you don't add additional liquid.
