    I don’t know why we made this because I did not expect to like it. I waned something with Quinoa, I guess. It was a surprise for both of us, WE LOVED IT! I used canned chicken from Costco and just dumped everything in the slow cooker for 8 hours. I did put it on high for about the first 1/2 hour. It is just the two of us but we always make a full receipe and freeze the rest in 2-meal sized containers. We are having it for dinner avain tonight. Thanks for a delicious dinner.  -  01 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Didn't take a picture because it didn't last long enough! Excellent and healthy. Everyone from six to sixty loved it... Only thing I did was use canellini beans instead of kidney beans because that was what I had...yum!  -  01 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was so yummy! I used chicken that I pulled off of a rotisserie chicken and used cannellini beans instead of red kidney beans because I just prefer them. My hubby and I loved this, my 4yo ate hers, and the 2yo took 3 bites which is a miracle. Will definitely be making this again.  -  16 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
