Here's a dinnertime warmer with a hint of spring's sweetness, designed for that day when you'd rather be outside raking the leaves from the garden, getting it ready for what's ahead, than slaving over the stove.

"Good but I'd put the sweet potatoes in later as they get too soft and tend to disintegrate in 5 hours. Also substituted onions for shallots. "

I made this easy dish during the week and I thought it was quite good. I wrote about it in my food blog "Eating the Rainbow" at

Overall, I think it was good. In addition to using fresh rosemary, I also added a tablespoon or so of herbes de provence. I didn't use the lemon either in the end (I forgot) and didn't miss it. I don't think my sweet potatoes were the best because they didn't taste sweet, but I think this brothy dish is worth making again, but with more garlic next time!


This was very good with some adjustments- I used Italian seasoning instead of just rosemary, a yellow onion instead of shallots, chopped garlic instead of whole cloves, plus about 2 cups chicken broth. I chopped the veggies instead of doing bigger spears, too. This was great with some toast to soak up the juices. I will make this again. My family had no complaints. :)


Cut up veggies and chicken, used skinless boneless chicken breast. Added rosemary, basil, and oregano. It seemed bland, and needed something to counteract all the acid from the wine and vinegar.


The make ahead tip said to freeze it. Does that mean before or after cooking it? Is this something i can put together and freeze in a container then take it out and left it in the slow cooker cooking when I go off to work?


I think that this is going to be great but it's taking WAY longer than 5 hours to cook. I would thin-slice potatoes and shallots. Just turned the crock pot up to high and hope to feed everyone before 7pm.
