I would totally give the sauce for this 10 stars if I could! I made the sauce the night before, along with cutting the onion and pear. That way I could just toss it all in the slow cooker before I left for work. When i opened the container with the sauce, I wanted to just eat it right there! I didn't brown the chicken before I put it in, mainly because I knew I was going to be gone all day and that it would cook in the slow-cooker. I also didn't add the asparagus for the same reason. The chicken unfortunately turned out a little dry for me, but that's partially due to the fact that I had to let it cook longer than I would like. I would love to use the sauce to cook the chicken either on the stovetop on in the oven. I will definitely be using it as a marinade going forward! As for the pears, my husband found out he doesn't like them (awesome timing, huh?) so next time I think I might use apples (something he WILL eat.) Otherwise, good recipe, I just might tweak it so my chicken doesn't dry out. Seriously, though, the sauce. DIVINE!

This was an AWESOME slow-cooker recipe! I omitted the chicken, because I'm vegetarian, and reduced the oil to 1 tsp (I assumed not all of it would make it into the slow cooker after the chicken was done cooking) but kept everything else the same. It was DELICIOUS. I love the combination of sweet and sour and salty and savory. Super easy and great for a farmer's market basket full of asparagus! It's not quite a meal on its own, so I'd recommend serving it over rice or with crusty bread.

What a wonderful dish! Upon arriving home, the aroma was so very inviting, we couldn't wait to dig into it, and we weren't disappointed. The multiple different seasonings and flacorings in this really made this dish. I served with orzo and mushrooms and a side salad. I will certainly be keeping this recipe and making again. Just because it's a slow cooker recipe doesn't mean this can't be served to company!!!

There were some interesting flavors in here. It was easy to make, but I didn't pre-cook the chicken; I just let it cook in the slow-cooker. My husband and son liked it. It's healthy, so that's a plus. I give it 4 stars, because I liked it but I didn't love it.

Made this dish for our Easter dinner. Everyone loved it! I used brown pears instead of Barlett and they turned out very nice. My guests loved the flavours and found the dish very appealing to the eyes too. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!
