“The slow cooker allows the vegetables and chicken to all meld the flavors together and have a thick, creamy texture to the liquid. It takes a while but is well worth the wait.” - by Anonymous

"I don't know how many stars to leave, because I admit I really changed this recipe, but I had to in order for it to work. One unwritten rule of crockpot cooking is: don't leave dairy products (namely..." See more milk or cheese) in the crockpot for extended periods of time. It will separate and just not work. So here's what I did. I put the chicken (used one large boneless chicken breast) in the crockpot with 3 cups of broth and all of the veggies except peas (omitted mushrooms). 3 cups of broth worked well- I don't see how it could have worked with 1. About an hour and half before we ate, I shredded the chicken and added the frozen peas (2 cups, not thawed). Then 30-45 minutes before we ate, I mixed one can (forget "one cup") of 2% evaporated milk with the flour in a large liquid measuring cup. Added that in and turned the slow cooker to high. Cooked until thick enough. Served with Butter Cresents from this site- yummy, good, comforting and filling! With my changes it's a 5, but as written, I'd say 3.... so I guess I'll give it a 4."
"I followed a lot of What a Dish!'s recipe variation: I used three smallish boneless skinless chicken breasts, 2 cups of chicken broth, 2 cups of veg broth, around ½ tsp rosemary, several grounds of pe..." See morepper, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 of a large onion (chopped). I let this all cook on high for 2 hours, then I chopped the chicken breasts into bite-size pieces. I added 6 oz of mushrooms (sliced in half) and let cook for 2 hours on low. I added 3 potatoes (cubed) and 12 baby carrots. I let it cook another two hours, then I added a cup of frozen peas and let it cook another half hour. I mixed around ½ cup flour with a 12-oz can of evaporated milk and mixed around 3/4 of this into the stew and let it cook around 45 minutes longer. I was very good with homemade biscuits! I agree that you should NEVER add dairy in the beginning of slow cooking. I have found, though, that if you have something start to separate in the pot, you can stir in some sour cream to help bring it back together."
"Be Forewarned!! I made this stew for a big holiday party and the milk separated!! I had to literally take the entire stew and rinse it by handfuls to clean it, and then threw together a quick broth ..." See moremix for it. (Luckily, everyone loved the broth mix, so they never knew). The recipe was fabulous other than that - I would definitely use it again, just not with the milk."
