Tasted good. I added a bit more of the chopped veggies, left out the butter - added butter buds to get buttery flavor, used fat free cream cheese and broccoli instead of peas. Chicken was done WAY before 5-6 hours.. more like 3.5 - 4

Way too salty...can't taste the salmon!

I am commenting to the large-in-charge people who make negative comments about recipes according to the way they like to eat. You may simply modify a recipe to your dietary restrictions or preferences, or don't make it at all. It is unseemly to impose your tastes on the rest of the population in such a negative manner. I don't care for a lot of salt myself, so use it sparingly. Problem solved.

First Main Dish recipe I have tried from Allrecipes as I havnt done a lot of cooking from scratch. Easy to follow for a beginner like me, and family loved it.

Added celery and way more carrots to make it one dish meal. Used 8 oz reduced fat cream cheese. Served over quinoa. Yum! Looks like it will freeze well for single servings for work!

I haven't tried the recipe and did want to comment on the critical note about it being a healthy recipe. I believe it said healthier, not healthy. Is that not a good starting place for those unhealthy people!

This was very tasty and easy to make. The only change I made was that I noticed that it was looking dry during the last 1/2 hour of cooking on high so I added 1/2 cup of chicken broth and it came out very nice. I do agree that it cooks in about 4 hours - 5 or 6 is much too long.

Easy. To cut down on salt. Don't add the tsp. Of salt and make your own hicken broth. Eating healthier sometimes takes a bit of work. You can also buy no salt broth.
