A very big hit in my house where my children are very finicky eaters! I substituted the 1 lb of chicken thighs and used 3 pounds of chicken breast instead, since I was upping the recipe for 7 people. I would have preferred it to be a little more spicy, but my kids thought it was great as is. I also cooked it for eight (8) hours on low, instead of the 4 at high, so I could start it before I left for work. I also served the leftover portions over rice with much success.

Tastes great! It had a little too much meat for us, so next time I'm going to put more vegetables in, and see what it tastes like with potatoes.

A delightful medley of flavors. My husband says this one is a keeper! The only adjustment I would make in the recipe though is that at the begining it should say 5 hours (30 minutes preparation time, 4 hours + 30 minutes cooking time) instead of 1 hour. I fixed it exactly as recommended. Truly a delicious recipe!

This stew was, in my opinion, bland. My family ate and enjoyed it, but I felt it needed something to make the flavor sing. All the vegetables and chicken tasted the same. It took every bit of 30 minutes to cut up all the veggies and chicken, but it was nice to have it cook in the crock pot. It was adequate and filling, but not great.

Great recipe! Thanks to Aaron on the suggestion for putting potatoes in it. I tried it with potatoes and it came out wonderful...

So simple and a hit with the whole family, we liked it just the way it was, we served it over homemade biscuits. Delicous! Maybe next time I will try potatoes in it instead of serving over biscuits or rice.
