So far, all I can really say is I made this recipe totally backwards. My chicken was still thawing, but I know how my slow cooker is so I started it heating to temp. In doing so, being my first time making this, I threw in my fresh veggies since I wrote down add all but frozen veggies. Lol. So, I thought 5 hrs on high with fresh veggies would all turn to mush, so I partially cooked my 3 medium red potatoes into bite sized pieces and boiled in salted water (abt 6 mins), cooled then coated with mrs. Dash original, pepper and a little salt. I also cubed the chicken and put it in the oven for 10 mins, with salt/pepper sprinkled over it, which is fine by me to get those juices out first. Otherwise I always think blood seeping out into the stew. I didn't have any chicken broth on hand, but the condensed did look pretty thick, so I drained the broth from a can of chicken noodle soup. I used real garlic and cut up an onion in large chunks. I used fresh baby carrots, minced garlic and chopped celery. No bullion cubes. I didn't go wild with the recipe, just made a few changes based on reviews and made more work for myself by making things out of order. Lol. I now have it on low for the next 2 - 3 hours to finish the potatoes, carrots and chicken. It already looks and smells delicious though. :-)
