    You took chicken breasts ( which take very little time to cook, period) Then you browned them and added them to a crock pot and extended the cooling time to 6 to 8 hours ? The recipe could have been easily completed in under another 30 min on the stove. WHAT'S THE POINT OF THE CROCK POT ???

    If I didn’t want to flour my chicken and brown it should I place chicken without flour in the slow cooker? Or flour chicken and place in slower cooker

    This was even better the second day. Used regular curry powder, a large can (13.5 oz. net weight) of sliced mushrooms and went with the Kitchen Bouquet option. Not usually a big fan of the color of chicken in a slow cooker but browning the chicken first and adding the KB made the chicken a nice color. The gravy was delicious. Loved the hint of the Amaretto. Served it over noodles. Will try with fresh mushrooms next time. Great dish!!

    This is one tasty dish!! We made it the secone time with Lime juice instead of lemon and it wasn't nearly as good. Stick with the lemon. This has become a weekend staple around my house.

    I did not try this recipe because the cooking time for the chicken seemed wildly excessive. When I've had boneless, skinless chicken breasts in he crock pot on low for only 4 to 4 1/2 hrs, they reliably come out as moist and tender as chicken "jerky" (if not dry wall !)

    Maybe it's just us but we didn't like this much at all. I made it exactly as written and we found it to be...well...yucky. The amearetto was too over powering for us.

    I haven't even eaten it yet, but I have tasted the sauce and it's outstanding. I'm going to make some pasta to go with it. Since I don't drink, I went to my local Walgreens that carries liquor and bought a single serving size bottle of Amaretto, which is just 1/4 of a cup. Can't wait for dinner time!

    This was what I chose for my very first ever crock pot recipe and it was great!. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts (just what I had on hand), minced garlic instead of powder, and soy sauce instead of the gravymaster (it's what I do to make gravy brown normally anyway). Thanks for posting...


<p><strong><span style=color: #ff0000;>Come and visit me on my blog:&nbsp; </span></strong></p> <p><a href=><strong><span style=color: #ff0000;></span></strong></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>October 2011: It's been 10 years since I came into Zaar one day at the recommendation of someone on another website. If you ask my husband (or my coworkers), I haven't logged out since! <br /><br /><a href=><br /><img src=;15;0/st/20011021/e/I Joined Zaar%21/dt/6/k/f656/event.png border=0 alt= /></a> <br /><br />So what's happened in the ten years since I became addicted to Zaar? Well, I've been happily married, happily divorced, and happily married once again. (Wanna see wedding pictures? Click <a href=>here</a>.) <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Originally from the Bronx, I've been living in Israel since 1983. I'm married to a brilliant man with the most yummy British accent (this is the part where he rolls his eyes and says, Yeah, yeah, yeah). Let's call him Sushiman, even though he hates that name. <a href=>Chia</a> gave him that nickname when I was trying to create a dinner to show off my culinary talents. I posted here on Zaar with questions about the menu and since sushi was the main focus of the meal, he became Sushiman. That dinner was just the first of what I hope will become a lifetime of meals together. <br /><br />This is a picture of us taken in September 2005 in Kew Gardens in London. It my favorite picture of the two of us. <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /></a> <br /><br />This comes in as a close second, taken March 2009: <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />I have 4 of the most gorgeous daughters in the known universe (tfu, tfu, tfu, that's me spitting three times to ward off the Evil Eye). Sushiman has 4 kids of his own, so together that makes us a family of ten, together with my dog and my step-dog (sadly, since I first wrote this my step-dog, Honey, crossed the Rainbow Bridge). We're the Brady Bunch on speed. Not all eight live with us, but everyone is in and out all of the time, so we're thinking about replacing our front door with one of those revolving thingies.</p> <p>If you need help figuring out the whole complicated mess, you can check out <a title=Miriyummy -- A Guide to the Perplexed href= target=_blank>Miriyummy, A Guide to the Perplexed</a>.</p> <p>Here are my four beauties -- from left to right: Adiya, Sara, Nomi and Tehila <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />On March 18, 2009, my oldest, Sara, got married to Ariel. The wedding was a clash of cultures and traditions, and we had a blast! <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Over 500 people attended our little party... <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />... and Ariel was welcomed into our family in style! <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />If you want to see the photo album from Sara and Ariel's wedding, just go <a href=;vhost=family&amp;action=refreshPhotos&amp;albumID=571020179&amp;security=JBDlvf>here</a>. <br /><br />We're just one big happy family, most of the time, really! <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Here on Recipezaar I am the host of the <a href=>Kosher &amp; Jewish Cooking forum</a>.

You will find a lot of comfort food, I believe that comfort food is very important. <br /><br />Gay and Troy are always thanking us for making Recipezaar such a great place.
