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.

how could you rate the recipe BEFORE you even made it?   "I'm GOING TO try this today" .....

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

2-star, has potential. Definitely needs tweaked. Overall a good start to a crockpot meal. Personal preference is that it needs more of a 'gravy'... didn't care for thyme.

Had no flavor. I will need to add spices for it to work.

I just put the ingredients in the pot, so well see how it turns out. But no where on directions does it list where to use garlic or thyme. I used them in the rub on chicken, was I correct?

Not bad. A little bland. But all in all ok.

I'm going to try this today but....could the recipe be doubled for extra dinner guests without much change in ingredients?
