  1. I've never tried a recipe quite like this one before...I honestly couldn't decide if I liked it or not. The recipe was very easy to make (that's a plus). You didn't say in the directions to drain the liquid from the crockpot before adding the shredded chicken, so I didn't and added cornstarch to thicken it. I served the chicken and thickened sauce on buns. When I first began eating the sandwich, I thought it was really good...however, after eating about half of the sandwich, it began to not taste quite so good. I've never had this happen to me before and can't explain it. Thinking it might be better today, I brought leftovers with me for lunch. The same thing happened...the first few bites were really good, then it wasn't. I want to try this again and see if I have better results with the recipe. If so, I'll be happy to revise my review.
  2. Wonderful dish. I added a bit of chili sauce and used French dressing (did not have Italian on hand) and it turned out great. Served it in a tortilla and I'm so glad there are leftovers to enjoy later. Thank you Brenda.
  3. This was pretty good. Not my own personal favorite, but I will make it again because my husband says he likes it better than my creamy chicken sandwiches (apparently they give him heartburn?) I only used 4 large boneless chicken breasts and it made a huge amount! We ate them 2 nights in a row and still had leftovers!
