The taste of this is really good so I'm giving it 5 stars. The rest of the story... well... Candy (that's me) shouldn't be allowed to cook, much less try to adapt recipes. I chose to make this for the ZWT4 Canadian Crockpot. What? You say it doesn't mention a crockpot in the recipe? Oh! Perfect, you get extra points for adapting one for the crockpot. Heh. Yeah. So, my idea of throw it all in there and see what happens didn't turn out so well because it didn't really make a sauce. (Note: I also left out the red peppers and celery because we were out of celery and I don't like peppers). So, I get the bright idea to take the chicken out and cut it up and then put some corn starch into it to thicken it like a sauce. So, we ended up with chicken a la glue. We had yummy turkey sandwiches for dinner instead. *laugh* Having said all of that, we did taste it a bit before we ruined (we being me, Candy) and it was VERY good. Just, uh... don't try to use it in the crockpot.
