    Easy, easy, easy! The flavor was very mild. I took off the broth and thickened it in a pan on the stove. Next time I would add green beans, onions, celery and some poultry seasoning for a more intense flavor. Very healthy recipe that I will make again with my additives! - 3/27/07

    Good recipe. Instead of the soup mix and water, I'd add homeade chicken broth sans the sodium, and season with your favorite herbs instead of the higher sodium soup mix. Any veggies would work well that you like. Also if you like the flavor of the onion soup mix just use dehydrated onions instead. - 8/5/09

    I love these throw together meals in a cooker. I did however add poultry seasoning and chicken broth base instead of the onion soup and then added mushrooms and celery instead of potatoes. My husband thought it was the best thing next to sliced bread. - 8/5/09

    This is a great recipe! I did cut back on the water to 3 cups and sprinkled the chicken breasts with garlic powder. I love using my slow cooker. - 8/5/09

    Due to the amount of water called for in this recipe, there was no flavor. If I try it again, I will use alot less water. - 11/19/08

    Very easy to make. I modified it to feed more people and the cooking time was different. It took almost 3 hours on high to get soft potatoes and carrots. The flavor was mild but still I felt like I was having pot roast. It makes a great meal to cook on the weekend & portion out for your lunches - 3/15/07

    I don't see how it can possibly be too much work to make this... I tossed everything in the crockpot in a span of 10 minutes, and walked away. Sweet. - 3/14/07

    I tried this with a few more veggies and some garlic powder and it was a hit. Too much work???? You've got to be kidding me...my teenager has a plan for this recipe, and teens always look for the easiest way. - 8/5/09

    Not enough flavor. If I made it again I would add other spices for flavor. - 3/24/08

    Pretty good. I enjoyed the flavoring of the vegetables more than the chicken, which was a bit bland. Everything was juicy and tender, though, so I would make it again and perhaps add some additional seasoning. - 1/30/08

    Super Easy to make. Not sure why one said it was hard! I hate cooking, so this was a real blessing to be able to throw this altogether in a few minutes. I used baking potatoes instead of red ones, which probably ups the calories a bit. Thanks for this great and very EASY recipe! - 6/11/07

    My husband LOVED this recipe. I thought it was okay. He is much more of a "meat and potatoes" guy so this was right up his alley. The previous poster compared it to a pot roast -- that is probably why he loved it! Anyway, very simple to make and very much a "traditional Sunday dinner" recipe. - 4/3/07

    I liked it but the sodium content was a killer! Next time, I'll only use 1 pkg of soup (I like the flavoring). I used 3 cups of lower sodium chicken broth, canned potatoes (rinsed) & no salt added green beans. - 10/9/09

    This sounds really good, but I don't think the sodium is correct. I will check it out first. Thanks. - 8/5/09
