I noticed some of the reviewers thought this was bland, so, I thought I would adjust the seasonings to be more flavorful. I used 4 chicken breasts instead of 6. I doubled all components of the rub except for the salt. I kept it at the same measurement. I heavily sprinkled the chicken breasts with the rub. I also sauteed the mushrooms in a little butter until they were golden brown before adding to the crock pot. This adds additional flavor. I did not add the sour cream at first because I did not want it to curdle or clump. I mixed the soup, chardonnay, mushrooms and covered the chicken. I cooked for 3 hours in the sauce. I then removed the chicken breasts and whisked the sour cream into the sauce until fully incorporated. I then added the chicken breasts back into the sauce and cooked for an additional hour. Boneless chicken breasts definitely do not need 8 hours to cook or they will be dry. The sauce was thick and very flavorful. The chicken was moist and delicious. I served with Jasmine rice and broccoli. Very simple to make and tasty! I'll definitely make again.

tastes great. I added a teaspoon of minced garlic. I love garlic. Doesn't need extra.

This has always been a favorite of mine! The recipe calls for the wine, sour cream, mushroom soup and mushrooms to be added together and poured on chicken to cook. I, personally, wait till the last half hour to add the sour cream. Yum

This recipe is so delicious. Tweaked it a bit, adding the sour cream in the last hour which was suggested by another. As well as shredding the chicken and putting it back into the sauce for the last hour.

It was pretty good but it could have used more sauce. I think next time I'll double the sauce ingredients.

The sauce had a good flavor. Cooked much faster than the recipe said it would.

This was the first crock pot recipe I tried. Added potatoes to it to make it a full meal. Next time I might try different spices because it tasted a bit bland to me.

I'd call this chicken stroganoff! I really liked it, as written, and so did the family. I figured that the chicken was going to be shredded since it cooked so long, so it wasn't the most visually pleasing dish! I served over egg noodles, and it was a delicious, hearty meal. I was able to get six 1 cup servings out of the recipe. Will make again!
