  1. My DH said "Now this is my kind of sauce!" Easy to make, great taste. Started with frozen chicken thighs and it was done at 3 hours on high in the crockpot. Used red wine instead of white because that's what I had.
  2. Just made this for New Years Eve Dinner and I am glad this is what I made. This was sooooo yummy! The meat just fell off of the bones and was full of flavor. Even my picky husband gave it two thumbs a rule he doesn't care for chicken on the bone but this was perfect for him. (This needs more stars.) I did have to modify the recipe a tad as I didn't have everything and was unable to make a run to the store. But it was still delicious. I didn't have any wine so I used chicken broth, had no bell peppers so I used frozen chopped broccoli, also didn't have a fresh onion so I used a bit of frozen pre-chopped onion, omitted the celery powder as I didn't have any, and used a small can of tomatoe sauce as we didn't have any tomatoe paste. It still turned out wonderful, and I can hardly wait to make this again with all of the correct ingredients.......although I probably will still include the broccoli as it tasted awesome. This is a keeper!
  3. This came out ok for me. The only thing I changed was brown the chicken before I put it in the pot. The basil and oregano in the sauce were way overpowering, so maybe next time, I will skip both and only do Italian seasoning since both are in there anyway. Also, it was a bit too spicy so I would cut the red pepper flakes in half. Thanks for sharing :-)
  4. It snowed like crazy and I pretty much had all the ingredients listed to add to the crockpot. I didn't have tomato paste, mushrooms or a green pepper. I used red wine and stuck with the rest of the recipe. Cooked for six hours on low. Fell off the bone ... Make sure you have lots of bread to soak up all the delicious sauce. Its a keeper for sure !!!! Thank you CJAY for sharing ! Snowbound with a dinner I'd go out and pay for !!!!
  5. This was pretty fast to put together. Next time I will remove the skin. Too greasy. Didn't have all the spices called for but, through together some things I had in the cabinet and the husband loved it. Made wide egg noodles this time to go with it.
