This dinner went over well with my family and dinner guests. I cooked it in the slow cooker on high for four hours. Just before serving I removed from slowcooker and placed the chicken on a baking sheet and broiled. This browned the skin and added a nice crispness to the chicken. The inside remained juicy and full of flavour. I did add a little cinnamon and soysauce to the ingredients. Turned out perfect. This is a keeper!

Very good chicken recipe. I used 5 frozen chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken, and let it cook for 4-5 hours. I also substituted ckn broth for the water and added basil as well. Turned out great, was really easy and I would definitely make it again!

This chicken came out sooooo tender and juicy! I sauteed the onion and garlic in butter before I put it in the crock pot. Instead of the water, I used chicken broth. I rubbed a little lemon pepper on the chicken. The flavors were very good, the lemon was nicely subtle and the rosemary was fragrant. Thanks for the recipe!
