    it was lovely! I added mushrooms, caps, and fresh thyme as well.  -  10 May 2011


    Best slow cooker chicken recipe I've ever cooked. I changed it to 8 thigh pieces and made it 3 lean bacon rashers and added 8 button mushrooms halved. I think perhaps 1 teaspoon of oil is enough. The whole tablespoon spent a lot of time spitting at me with nothing to cook. Otherwise - smashing recipe, could not inhale it quick enough  -  18 Oct 2014
