This was good, not exceptional, 3 stars for flavor but added one star because it's incredibly easy to make. Many of the negative reviews said it was way too salty, note that this recipe calls for the tiny .7 oz dressing packet! The ones I buy are 1.3 oz packets so I weighed out my dressing mix & used the .7 oz called for & didn't find it too salty, just right for our tastes. Also some negative reviews said the chicken was too dry, well that can depend on size of chicken breasts used & size of crock pot. I have a large 6 qt crock pot & used medium sized breasts so most of my chicken sat directly on the bottom of the pot, & I noticed about 2 hours in that the chicken was already cooked through. Since I planned on 5 1/2 hours until dinner I turned it down to "warm" temp for the next 3 hours & the chicken turned out just right. The gravy was a bit thick, I think if served with just-drained-pasta it would have been okay but because I was serving with rice I wanted it thinner so it would drip down into the rice a bit more so I added a bit of milk, maybe 1/4 cup. I used the condensed cream of chicken soup called for in the recipe, which made it turn out a pale whipped-butter-yellow, which was kind of weird for a sauce, & I think it would be better with the addition of garlic, so I may try this recipe again using condensed cream of mushroom with roasted garlic soup. This would make for a different flavor that I think we'd like more, the color would be more appetizing.
