First of all, this would have to be made in a HUGE crockpot to get SIX breasts in. It was disappointing. In principle this is a good idea, but needs work. I made half the rice recipe with 4 breasts and they fit fine in my large size pot. The chicken turned out very bland. The breasts should be seasoned. At the end, I shredded the chicken and mixed everything together. I didn't use carrots because I am allergic, had I put them in this would have been even blander (and mushier). Also, the long grain and wild rice boxes have less than 1 cup mix so prepare to buy several to get the amount needed. The dish in general is NOT visually attractive. If you are looking to WOW guests, don't choose this one. I suppose it would be good to feed a large group of people but only fixing the flavor. I will mix in some light cream and Parmesan cheese to make it look like a risotto.

This cooked well (the chicken was moist & tender, the rice was cooked & had the right amount of moisture to it, the carrots were not mushy), but I personally did not like the taste of the rice, although normally I like wild rice. My family was not enthused about this, either. I used 2 boxes of wild rice & supplemented w/ 1 cup instant brown rice. I think you could get by w/ 3 boxes of wild rice, though. Also, I would omit the carrots, they don't add anything to the taste. I think this would taste better made w/ plain rice.

Very disappointing. I didn't read the other (few) reviews before making. Thought the ingredients would make for a good basic dish that all in my family would like. The only changes I made: used 2 large turkey breasts rather than the chicken breasts, and used vegetable broth instead of plain water. Still, my 6qt crock pot was full to the brim. I was hopeful as it cooked, but ended up disappointed in many ways. The turkey was tender and tasted fine, actually did have a seasoned taste. However, the overall dish did not look appetizing and was certainly not satisfying.... and my family loves both rice and carrots. The rice was just rather strange tasting and the bottom was overcooked, some of it burnt. The carrots seemed out of place, adding nothing to the dish. In hindsight, I'd prefer to cook the meat in the crock pot and prepare the rice and carrots separately. I think all would turn out better that way and look vastly more appealing.

This did not turn out even though I followed the directions to a T. Oh well they cant all be winners right?

I had the computer reduce this recipe for 2 people and follwed it exactly but it came out like a paste. Won't make this again.

I used 4 huge chicken breasts, cut into 8, used the carrots and it all fit perfectly. I used one can of crm of mushroom and two of the crm of chicken. So yes, I added some ground black pepper...added a little Kosher salt. Works very well. Will definitely use this recipe again.

I made a few adjustments . I used one can cream mushroom an two cream of chicken. I also added onion powder, garlic salt, and chicken seasoning. 30 minutes before serving put shredded cheddar cheese on top. My entire family loved it including the kids!
