I've made this twice now, but last time I forgot to make any kind of notes or anything... I just remember that I ended up with a REALLY full slow cooker (big oval one too) because I used too many chicken thighs :P So this time I was more accurate to the proportions given in the recipe. I must say this is awesome to the point I wish I had a dinner party to bring it to, because people would be impressed! I think it's important to keep in mind the size of your slow cooker when determining how large your 'two carrots' etc should be, and chop the vegetables smaller if you'd like it to cook faster. The chicken doesn't take nearly as long. I only had about two, three hours to wait, so I made the carrots thinner and the potato pieces smaller (probably a little too small as I personally love the tender bites of potato, though they went happily into delicious sauce, so it's okay). I did double the spices because I felt it was just not enough given the amount of food. Total perfection. I made it with Quinoa Side Dish from this site, so the dinner was a little onion-y overall, but that is so all right in this house. Threw in about six boneless, skinless thigh filets from the store, shredded about 2.5 hours in, then let it hang out in cooker while making the quinoa. Food heaven. Will make again for sure. It's also INCREDIBLY cheap if you use chicken thighs. I'd be wary of letting it cook 4 hours though, at least on high.
