    What does "Cook: 3hr › Extra time: 3hr 15min" mean? The recipe just says "Cover and cook on High for three hours". What is the extra 3 hours and 15 minutes for? Thanks!  -  03 Oct 2015


    I also added the squeezed lime juice as stated in earlier review  -  28 Oct 2012


    Great recipe, I added a green pepper and extra onion and left the chicken breast whole. I've eaten for my last three lunches with some rice and chicken just tears apart :-)  -  21 May 2015
