    Great recipe! In place of water and and chicken bouillion granules I used fat free/ lo sodium chicken broth which lowered the sodium count because I have to watch that for my hubby's blood pressure - it came out great. Thanks!!! - 8/6/08

    This was wonderful!! Very easy to make. Instead of the water, I used one can of fat free, low sodium chicken broth. I thought it might need more liquid since I had to keep mine in the slow cooker longer (9 hrs while I was at work). They key is to brown is well before the slow cooker to keep moist. - 6/14/08

    I didn't have enough time to let this cook in the slow cooker, so I cooked it in a skillet for 45 minutes on low heat. The chicken came out most and flavorful, and I served it over brown rice with veggies on the side. My family loved it! - 6/10/08

    definitely needs more liquid. We like more lemon (plus a little lemon zest), garlic and sometimes mushrooms. Over brown rice, it is great. - 8/4/08

    Very good! I used Better than Bullion instead of a cube.Was moist and delicious. I think I might try adding a little c/starch and make a thicker sauce next time. Had plenty of sauce but I didn't measure - just eyeballed it. I also didn't brown it first - just threw threw in frzn breasts for 6 hrs - 3/10/09

    Very Good! Like others said, the chicken was so moist, it was falling apart. I added a little lemon pepper to the chicken before I browned it. It added an extra little kick. I will definatly make this again! - 1/7/08

    I used thighs instead of breasts and accidently left it on for over the recommended time but I was surprised to find that it not only wasn't burnt, it was so extremely yummy and tender and moist. Perfect. I wish I'd have put in more chicken now, though. - 4/22/08

    Very simple and tastes great! I loved that it was a recipe that I had all the ingredients for already. I added some broccoli for about 30 minutes at the end, which was great in the sauce! Then I served it over some brown rice, and it made multiple meals! - 1/1/10

    the flavor was great but the chicken was a little dry. I used 1 can of low sodium chicken broth and addd a little lemon pepper. Excellent taste. I wonder if browning it more in the pan would have helped it retain moisture? I served it as suggested with brown rice & carrots. - 8/27/08

    Not bad, my kids thought it was too sour. Hubby and I enjoyed it with rice and broccoli with cheese sauce. Had no problem with the liquid evaporating in my crockpot. - 11/29/07

    tastes great - for the amount of time listed tho, i had to add more water and lemon juice to keep the chicken from burning to the bottom of my crockpot! - 3/20/07

    I thought this was just kind of "eh". It didn't seem particularly lemony or garlicky. I'd cook it again, maybe use chicken broth instead of water, and more of it. Also, more garlic. - 1/2/10

    This chicken was sooo tender. It fell apart! The meal itself could have used some more seasonings, but the leftover chicken went great in salads just the way it was. - 3/1/08

    I used more liquid as well (some marsal wine) and thickened the sauce when it was done, served over bow tie pasta.
    I will make again. Thanks - 2/3/10

    I reduced the recipe as I only had 1/2 lb of chicken and added a little extra water to the crock pot. It was very good. Next time I may make the full recipe and have friends over for dinner. - 4/19/08

    This was very tasty, but 2 pounds is a LOT of chicken. Next time I'm only going to use 1 pound and that will still give us generous portions. Thanks for this recipe! - 2/9/10
