    I made this last night and it was great! I used chicken breasts instead of thighs, and it turned out very well. And so full of fiber - I was stuffed! Thank you! - 12/30/10

    This was quite delicious! I was gone from home for almost 12 hours - I used frozen chix thighs (4) and cut the sweet potatoes in bigger chunks. This had great flavor and was very yummy and easy. Thanks! - 10/26/10

    So, so good! I used chicken breasts instead of thighs and added more salsa for an extra kick. This dish was extremely filling and there was a lot left over. I will definitely be making this again! - 9/10/10

    This was really really good. I am not used to eating chicken thighs, but I know they work better in the slow cooker so I did use them; next time I think I will try it with breasts, even though they tend to dry out. Love this flavor combination, though. Thanks for sharing! - 7/22/10

  • I thought this recipe was delicious! I added the sweet potatoes towards the end of cooking, which kept them from getting too mushy! Great left overs as well. - 11/6/13

  • Really loved this dish. Started with frozen chicken breasts. Only had a tiny bit of cumin left in house, so we ended up adding cinnamon and it worked really well. Can't wait to have it again. - 10/5/13

  • Rather disappointed with this. I thought the sweet potatoes would add a sweetness, but instead they were just mushy. I even doubled the beans and the spices to give it more flavor, but no help. We are eating the left overs tonight. I am hoping it will taste better than it looks. - 1/17/13

  • My family loved this! I used chicken breasts and used two cans of 15 oz. black beans and extra salsa (organic low sodium). I cooked it for about 4 hours on low and then 45 minutes on high. The chicken shredded easily. Stir well after cooking to make a perfect stew. Garnish w/ fresh cilantro! - 1/13/13

  • This was SO good! The combination of spices was just right. My husband doesn't like sweet potatoes, but really liked this recipe-said he couldn't tell they were sweet potatoes :) Will definitely make again-so perfect for busy weeknights! - 11/9/11

  • I thought this was way too bland and didn't even finish what I put on my plate. My fiance thought it was ok, so at least it didn't get wasted. Won't be making again. - 8/21/11

  • This was GREAT! I changed out the chicken thighs for 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts. Super great taste! - 5/19/11
