    The flavors in this recipe are fabulous! There was a little too much liquid for my taste, I think next time I make it I will cut the water in half. Thanks for the yummy meal! - 11/19/08

  • This was delicious! I don't have a slow cooker. I sauteed the onions, carrots, and garlic and cooked the squash before-hand. Then I cooked it all with the chicken and just enough water to give it a sauce. It was easy and fantastic. Thanks for sharing it! - 12/22/09
