First, let me say this recipe is delicious! I don't have any chili peppers so I added a spritz of hot sauce and Worstershire sauce to add some savory flavor. I also added spinach for additional food value. My only criticism is the prep time. The author gave a 15 minute prep, but it took more than 45 minutes. Prepping the chicken and onions required extra work and time. I'm glad I made this dish. I wonder if some of the work can be done the night before so I can just start the crock pot first thing in the morning.
I made this recipe exactly as stated without the peppers. I subbed in some a teaspoon of chili beak chili oil and the heat was perfect. My problem with the recipe is the cook time. It is way too long. This was perfect after just 3 hours. With such small pieces of chicken and squash you should not have to cook it for 7+ hours! It ruins the texture of the meat and the squash and turns them into mush. After just 3 hours they were perfect and the flavors were distinctive and delicious. I wish I had gone with my gut and took it off the heat at that time. I rated the recipe as it is written. We did not like it overcooked and mushy. I recommend cooking this for no longer than 3 hours and then it's almost 4 stars for me. It smells great the first few hours of cooking too. I might try it again with the lower cooking time.
I added mushrooms and crushed heirloom tomatoes to add texture and flavor. Served with a side of fresh sopapillas with honey. A perfect fall meal!
