    This is a great recipe. I used chicken broth for the water, left off the celery since hubby doesn't like it. I also added chopped onions and used real garlic instead of the powder. What makes this recipe great is that you and add or take away ingrediants you don't like. - 5/22/09

    This is a good basic recipe. Just wipe a bit of oil in a pan and saute the chicken, onion and celery first(can do the night before and refrigerate the whole thing until ready to add to crock). I'll bring out the flavor. - 6/22/08

    Possibly would make again. This is for the hard core dieter. No flavor at all. The veggies were great, just the broth was bland - 1/21/08

    to add more flavor you could add 4 chicken bouillon cubes to the 4 cups of water or you could use chicken broth in place of the water or you could even use fat free cream of chicken , mushroom , or celery soup. - 5/22/09
