Better Slow Cooker Robust Chicken

"I found this recipe on All-Recipes on the Internet. It is very good, very different. If you don't like the olives or the vinegar, skip this one. It won't be right without it. My whole family (even the kids) LOVED it!!"

  1. This has got to be the most delicious slow cooker chicken that I have ever tasted!
  2. A tad too strong on the vinegar side for our taste. I do however have an explanation. I believe that this dish somewhat shines or falls on the quality of balsamic venegar. I had only cheap vinegar. High quality balsamic vinegar is sweet and can be used on ice cream or strawberries. I DID NOT have a high enough quality vinegar. To take out the bite of the vinegar, use some heavy cream or some sour cream to soften the taste (stirred in at the end without cooking). We both liked it much better that way. Jim in So. Calif.
  3. I had my doubts when I was first putting this together. The smell of the combined uncooked ingredients was not promising. But, OH MY GOSH! Once it cooked for a few hours, it smelled great and taste even better! I think I will try reducing the mustard by a tad next time. The flavor was awesome but really strong. Who would guess this unusual combination of ingredients would produce such a great dish. It's perfect when served with rice. Thanks for another great recipe Goddess.
  4. The list of ingredients was so intriguing, I had to try it. (and since it was so different, I followed it to the letter). I told my family this is either going to be delicious, or really bad. Everybody commented on how great it smelled just walking in the front door. And we were all pleased with the way it turned out. (my youngest picked out the mushrooms, but she always does that!) When I revealed the ingredients, everybody was laughing. Great recipe, thanks for sharing this unique recipe that we will be making again!
  5. An interestng combination of flavors. I served this over rice. It was good leftover for lunch the next day too.


I hate to bake (almost as much as I hate to vacuum!), and I'll go to great lengths to avoid having to make cookies.
