I decided to try this recipe when it came up and had no reviews. I know how it feels to have no reviews :) This recipe was so delicious and has so many possibilities. I made it as stated, except I cut up the chicken thighs because I like smaller pieces. The taste was similar to a pot pie without the crust but it was much better. The main problem that I encountered was that the sides of my crock pot started to burn so I don't think this recipe lends well to being cooked on high heat. I also had a problem when I put the rice in. I put 2 cups of uncooked rice in since the recipe didn't specify, but I think maybe the rice should have been cooked first. I had to add about a cup or two of water so that the rice could cook and it took an extra couple of hours to finish after putting in the rice and vegetables. I will try this recipe again, but on low heat for about 6.5 hours before adding the rice and vegetables. Both my fiance and I loved this recipe and I can't wait to try different vegetables in it. I used a stir fry mix which was delicious. I like the fact that I can get my meat and veggies all together in one dish. Thanks for a great recipe!!!!
