“Nothing like the Mediterranean tastes of tomato, onion, bell peppers and of course chicken! All these tastes bundled up with chili sauce in one slow cooker. Simple, Spanish, scrumptious! Serve with asparagus and corn over plain white rice, if desired.”

I was so confused about how I was supposed to make this because, to me, when you say slow cooker I think crock pot. Obviously, in order to begin with it boiling I just went ahead and did it on top of the stove. I didn't have chili sauce so I used a package of dry taco seasoning and it was fine. But 6 hours of simmering boneless chicken on top of the stove (or in the crock pot) is WAY too long. I used bone-in thighs and after about 3 hours I had tasty, tender chicken. The ingredients are great and the flavors good, but the directions here cannot be trusted.

This dish has potential. Unfortunately, the directions do not correspond with my slow cooker, and it cooked way too fast. Fortunately, I rescued it before it was overdone and still had it for dinner. The spices were missing some notes. Needed salt, for one. I'll have to experiment to get it to my own taste. Overall, great recipe. You might need to fiddle with it in order to get it to cook right for your model of cooker.

A little too sweet for my husband and me -- and I too found the recipe somewhat confusing. I boiled the water, poured it onto the chicken in the crock pot -- then when the check turned white, I took most of the water out -- and added the sauces. I cooked it for six hours, added 1-1/2 cups of uncooked rice and cooked it an additional hour. I liked it more than DH, I liked the chicken -- but the flavor was too 'off' to be all that appetizing. And was I really supposed to pour off the water? It would have been way to 'soupy' if I hadn't.
