  1. I loved the flavor of this stew, but I've decided that I'm just not a fan of the texture of the chicken...the crockpot makes it too mushy. I will make it again, because I think it would be really good in the oven.
  2. I love pineapple and I love slow cooker meals so I figured I would give this a try. I did like it, but I felt like it was missing something and the flavor just didn't stand out for me, I do tend to like bolder flavors though and this is more of a sweet mellow dish. I prepared exactly as directed. I may try this again and just modify it somehow.
  3. We enjoyed this delicious slow cooker chicken. Other then using a touch less allspice I made as directed with excellent results. Thank you for sharing one of your all time favorites.
  4. This was a very good stew, I think. Though my little brother kept complaining about how "weird" it was to have ginger and allspice with chicken. But even he liked it in the end.
  5. Very tasty and easy to make. Impressed that such a low calorie meal could be so satisfying! Thanks for posting.
