I browned my chicken thighs in 1 TBL olive oil, put them in the crock pot and then browned the onions and garlic. After the onions carmelized, I deglazed the pan with some of the wine/broth and added that in with the chicken and other vegetables.  I increased the amount of liquids and whisked in 1 TBL of dijon mustard.  Thirty minutes before serving, I added some fresh rosemary.  Turned out very good!

I made this dish as directed, adding additional seasonings as suggested in previous reviews. . .awful. Southern Living had even touted this recipe with a video presentation - very disappointed that they would make such a high recommendation for a poor recipe,

I enjoyed this and the vegetables were good. It needed some tweaking in the seasoning dept but all in all a good recipe.

Tasty dish, but the thighs seemed dried out. Next time I will layer it differently.

This dish was great in the sense that you didn't need to pre heat anything on the stove before putting it into the slowcooker, it was a true slowcooker meal. The chicken came out soft and moist and fell right off the bone, I really can't complain about how that came out, the only thing I would do differently next time is maybe add a little more seasoning to the chicken and the stock with the potatoes and carrots, my boyfriend really enjoyed this meal, I will definitely try it again with a little more seasoning next time :)

I thought this recipe was just ok. It definitely needs tweaking in the seasoning department - I found it fairly bland. The chicken, carrots and potatoes were cooked perfectly and with some added salt and pepper it was ok. I thought the spice rub for the chicken needed a major overhaul, so I would do something different next time - rosemary and fresh garlic maybe. Served this with garlic bread and a spinach salad. Good, basic recipe - just needs individualized tweaking.

Fantastic! With one picky teen, toddler and two parents in need of a good meal - this is the ticket! Everyone was going back for more. The chicken is to tender, it was perfect to chop together as a complete mixture of goodness for my toddler...bonus!
