    Just okay... made recipe as written except did not sear chicken first so we could prep the night before. 6 hours was too long and chicken was a bit dry... 4 hours would probably have done it for small-medium size boneless thighs in a 6 qt crock on low setting. Thyme was overpowering for my taste but the sweet and savory flavor was otherwise good. If we make this recipe again I'll omit the thyme and reduce cook time.  -  14 Jun 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    whole family enjoyed this very much and very little prep  -  27 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe served two purposes: it is dairy and soy free and it uses chicken thighs which my son’s pediatrician recommended for their iron content. It is also delicious! Even my husband liked it and he is skeptical of new recipes. It has the right amount of sweetness with a good mixture of spices. I reduced the cumin to 1/2 tsp for taste and it was just right for us. I served it with pasta and tossed the pasta in the pan juices before serving. It was also super easy. We will definitely have it again!  -  15 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
