I just made this dish and it's quite tasty. My pears and veg held up well. I browned the chicken in a cast iron pan as directed, then I removed the chicken and set aside. I put the onion slices in the skillet and got some good color and carmelization on them and put aside. I then, I think this is key to having them hold up in a slow cooker..threw the asparagus in the skillet and did the same..got some nice brown color on them. I put the chicken in the slow cooker, followed by the carmelized onions and pears and then asparagus. I deglazed my skillet with basalmic and some apple juice and poured the mixture over the chicken before adding the sauce. My only critique of this dish as some others have pointed out is that the chicken was a bit dry after cooking on low for 4 hours. I think that next time I would use some dark meat, thighs and think that it would be just perfect. As it is, the Fiance' and I are enjoying this slow cooked dish on a stormy, cold day and we like it quite well. Will make again.
