    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

    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

    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

    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
