    Good flavor but 7 hours is way too long. I took the chicken out at 4 hours & it was already getting a little bit stringy. I used fresh chicken though, not frozen. thanks for the recipe!

    So yummy. I am not a fan of rosemary but the blend of the ingredients were awesome. I used frozen chix brsts and cooked it for 4 hours low and 1 1/2 hour high. Keep an eye on it and the end. The sauce made the meal. I served over brown rice.

    So tender! So yummy! Couldn't be easier, and acceptable for a diet at 7 weight watcher points. You really can't mess this up, either--I kept changing the settings on my crockpot as my plans kept changing, and added the vinegar at the wrong time.


I am a mother of three and live in central Pennsylvania. My children were very active in after school activities and found we weren't spending anytime together at meal time. In 1998, I decided to start cooking my dinners in a crockpot so that we could have a home cooked meal together once everyone came home. My children now get so excited to see what we are having to eat and love the smell when they walk in the door. My family calls me the crock pot queen. LOL I use my crock pot everyday of the year. <br> <br>My three children are now in college and before they come home they request their favorite meal. I still continue to cook in the crock pot for my husband and I. It is nice after a long day to know your meal is ready. It also helps in keeping my grocery bill down. With zaar, I can print my shopping list and that is all I purchase is the ingredients on that list. <br> <br>Now, my two daughters have been crock pot cooking while in college. They find it is easy to cook for the themselves and their friends. It is an easy way to have friends over for dinner after classes <br> <br>I still love trying new recipes and purchasing cookbooks, especially crock pot cookbooks. <br> <br>Happy Cooking!
