"In Italy, spirited chicken dishes like this one are known as 'pollo alla contadina' or peasant-style chicken. Serve with pasta such as fettuccine or linguine."

This was awesome!!! No dry chicken if you add some liquid, my changes:
crush the rosemary; 1 lb sausage, browned; 4 pcs chicken; white wine instead of vermouth; add 1 cup marinara sauce; add 1 (14 oz) can of chicken broth. I had to double the cornstarch mixture because of the increased liquid.
It was really great, a definate keeper!
I think with some modifications this could be a tasty meal. It smelled wonderful in the beginning. I cut the chicken into large chunks and that could be why it cooked in 3-4 hours. The chicken and the ground pork were very dry. Also the sauce was very bitter with only the vermouth. I had to add quite a bit of salt and a few big scoops of sugar to lessen the bitterness. I cook by recipes mostly and am not that great at modifying a base with vermouth only. So, others may know just what this recipe needs. Linguine was a good pasta for this.
Great comfort food for a cold winter night!! I used white cooking wine and added a can of Italian style diced tomatoes, which provided more liquid.
My husband and I both thought this was excellent and VERY flavorful. It does need salt added to the crock pot ingredients before cooking for 5-7 hours. Also, I used chicken broth instead of the vermouth in the main recipe. You can make a lot more sauce than the recipe calls for and I think that it really adds to the dish. I used about 1/4 cup of bisquick (instead of cornstarch) and more chicken broth (instead of water) to make the sauce and it was delicious over the chicken and thin spaghetti I served it with. You can not go wrong with a low fat/low calorie/low carb meal that tastes this good!
Quite enjoyable: Chicken was a bit dry, but sauce was very tasty. Carmelized onions & peppers before adding to crock pot. Also cut breasts in half and browned chicken and sausage (removed casing) before adding to pot. Added 1/2 cup white wine, 1/2 cup chicken stock, sliced mushrooms to crock pot. Doubled spices and cornstarch. Served over tortiglioni with a Pinot Grigio.
My Whole family loved this recipe! My son even requests it!
I did add a bouillion cube to the sauce at the end and only cook it for 4 hours so the chicken is not over cooked.
I needed a recipe to feed a group of people that I had invited over from church and I needed something easy because I work two jobs. This crockpot recipe looked ideal. I did all the work the night before and then just put the crockpot on in the morning. I served this with Italian Green beans, corn pudding, a mandarin orange spinach salad and a fruit truffle. There wasn't one piece of food left and several asked for the recipe. It was WONDERFUL
Fantastic!!!!! lo calorie and delicious! my sons loved it (8 and 6 years old). that's a huge compliment for chicken that is not in mcnugget form.
