I've made this twice... First time, I followed the recipe perfectly except I used the called for amount of chicken but in chicken breast form, no bones. The second time, I made it easy. I thawed only 2lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, then roasted the peppers. While that was going, I put the tomotillos in the processor, chopped the rest in my chopper and mixed all together. I added the cumin and pepper to the mix (did not put on the chicken). Once the chicken was thawed, I threw that into the crockpot (raw and bare), then the 'Verde sauce' on top. Done. 4 hours on high and yummy! (no boiling the sauce after). The chicken is so tender that 2 forks can shred it in just a couple minutes. Next time I doubt I will roast the peppers. So basically it turned into: Make verde sauce and slow cook with chicken. It is reeeeaaally yummy. We eat it with tostinos 'scoop' chips, in a quesodilla, or in a taco. It also freezes well. Thumbs up!

The person who created this recipe apparently didn't get message that slow cooker recipes are supposed to be easy. This required FAR too much work for any recipe, let alone one you should be able to dump in the slow cooker and go. I roasted and peeled and chopped for well over an hour before I even put anything in the cooker. And when it's done, you still have to simmer the sauce for nearly half an hour. The end product tasted alright, but not great. I'll never make it again. Now I have to go clean up a huge mess.

Flavor = 4 stars. Prep = 1 star. This has potential, but I"m making a slow cooker dish that requires the work listed above :-) I sort of tossed the directions away but stilled used most of the recipe. I put 4 frozen b/s chicken breast in the slow cooker; Then Instead of poblano & tomatillos, I bought a jar of good quality Salsa Verde. I used he diced green chilies & simply sliced up the fresh jalapeno. I tossed everything into the slow cooker, covered & cooked on low. What was the worst that could happen?!?!?!? The results were great - as one reviewer did, I shredded & used as a taco filling. We really did like this!!!!!
