    SusieQusie's Note:

    Browning the bacon, chicken and vegetables before adding to the crock pot creates deep rich flavors in both the chicken and sauce. After the saute, the crock pot does all the work. Serve with a crusty baguette or coucous.

      I thought the recipe was great. I added carrots so there would be a vegetable.

      Easy, straightforward, and fast. We've made this numerous times, and it's always excellent. I will say that it cooks *very* quickly in my crockpot, so now I just make it on the stovetop.
