    It was fine, nothing special.

    I’ve cooked this dish a few times now. It’s delicious served with rice. Granted I have to jazz it up a bit with spicy marinara sauce and I sprinkle Creole seasoning on top, et voila!

    The chicken had no flavor. I had to add Italian seasoning after the chicken was finished and I had to add goat cheese to give it any kind of flavor. I won’t be making this again.

    My husband and I thought it was delicious. I used Classico tomato herb and spice sauce, added a little extra parsley and basil than what the recipe called for. After cooking for four hours in high, I shredded the chicken, put it on warm and sprinkled fresh parmigiana and closed the lid until we were ready to eat. I used a slotted spoon to transfer to serving dish because it was kind of soupy. I topped it with shredded mozzarella cheese.

    Toddler, 6 year old and husband loved it... added green peas just for the veggie side of things.

    Soooo easy and tasty. Will definitely make this again but next time I’ll add some mushrooms. The family loved it too.

    It’s easy to make as it’s made with a crockpot everything gets cooked, but I don’t even really taste anything besides plain chicken and some peppers

    Very watery. I drained most of the water then added some additional sauce and still tasted watery.

    This was great! I added 4oz of cream cheese leftover from another recipe and it was perfect!

    It turned out good! I’m making it again, the only thing is, it’s kinda watery! So I’m trying to think of a few ways to make it not as saucey!

    Very good. I added mushrooms, more chicken to soak up the sauce and extra garlic. I also served it over rice!

    Have made this one several times! Really easy and tastes fantastic! We use chick pea noodles and add a little red pepper!

    Awesome and simple! Slightly watery (why it lost a star), but still great flavour. My house smelled delicious all day. Will definitely make again!

    Wow! I was amazed at how beautifully rich the sauce became, as if I had cooked it over the stove for hours! I made it on Halloween with thin spaghetti and it was a hit! I would like to try it on rice next time if even on a thick sub bun! I can’t wait to make it again!

    It was delicious! I added rice to it so I’d have a 1 pot meal!

    VERY GOOD!!! The taste of the sweet peppers was a little much for me so next time I would like to try Portobello mushrooms cut in a similar way to the peppers. I can also see not using any vegetables at all, but I may not do that because this recipe will help me get much needed vegetables into my diet.

    We liked this meal because it took only minutes to prepare. It was nice to come home from work with dinner already made and the kitchen smelling great!

    This was just ok. If I made it again, I’d probably add more herbs or some garlic. The texture was also kind of soupy, which I wasn’t a fan of.

    Great! I adjusted the recipe a little, so that I could use my Instant Pot!😋

    I made this for my fiancé for dinner and he loved it. I added in some lentils and used a spicy marinara sauce to give it a kick. I do recommend shortening the cooking time to high 3 -1/2 hrs or else chicken starts to get dry.
