Maybe there's something wrong with your slow cooker? The vegetables SHOULD have been cooked, especially after turning it up to high after cooking for several hours BEFORE that. I wouldn't use it again without checking the unit's temperature levels it as it could accidentally cause food poisoning if it's not heating correctly.
Whenever I cook carrots and potatoes in a slow cooker/crock pot they never cook, always come out hard. I noticed one person had those results...any tips to make them soft? Some said theirs came out soft when followed thhe same recipe so I am confused : (
After reading the reviews I decided to make a few tweaks to this recipe and it came out amazing. I put the onions potatoes garlic and carrots in the bottom of my slow cooker. I then mixed a packet of Lipton onion soup mix with a 1/4 cup of white wine and 1/2 cup of water and poured this mixture over the veggies. I also put salt and pepper on the chicken and seared them in a skillet w a tablespoon of oil just to brown both sides adding some color and flavor to the chicken since someone mentioned the chicken didn't look like the picture. I arranged the chicken on top of the veggies and set on low for 6 hours. So delicious I think next time I would even try a whole chicken for something different. I only gave the recipe 3 stars because I tweaked it but the version I did I would give 4-5 stars
