Easy and oh so yummy!! It was freezing rain today and I felt like something warm and comforting. I didn't have time to crock pot this, so I just made it on the stove. (Cooked it for 45 min on low) I sauteed the veggies and added celery and doubled the wine and seasoning. I added the potatoes for the last 20 min of cooking, so they wouldn't get mushy. I served it over couscous. We all loved it and I can't wait for leftovers tomorrow Pros: Easy, yummy Cons: None
A Keeper I don't have a slow-cooker but I baked it for 5 hours in my oven on a low temperature and it came out well. Pros: Filling
Hearty, Filling Stew So, I'm not sure why so many reviews said the dish was not flavorful, because I thought it was bursting with flavor thanks to the white wine! The only things I did different were to add 3 cloves of minced garlic (instead of 4 cloves), I added some celery and half a chopped onion (instead of the scallions), I chopped then crushed a sprig of rosemary, and I used boneless chicken thighs instead of bone-in. Next time, I think I will use chicken breast since I don't care for the work required to clean fatty thighs, and I didn't feel that their flavor added that much to the dish. Also, I cooked this dish on low for 5 1/2 hours, and everything seemed to cook well. The sweet potatoes did fall apart a little, but I think that just adds to the broth. I liked how hearty the stew was, without leaving you feeling weighed down afterwards! Another EatingWell success! Pros: Easy prep, Flavorful!
Not a stew I added a yellow onion and some green bell peppers since I had them on hand. While everything cooked nicely I don't think the sauce created makes this a stew. I added Reisling and the food still tasted like wine. I think I would've preferred cream or mushroom or chicken soup instead. Served this over rice too Pros: Everything cooked well. Cons: Didn't make a good sauce
Rapid Prototype Approach Before attempting this very easy-looking recipe, I read and considered each of the reviews/comments. They all were very helpful! As an artist, I draft & create prototypes with cheap materials before attempting The Masterpiece. I decided to try the same approach with this recipe and made several modifications. Don't laugh, but I used the entire 5# box! I started cooking this on high first, at 1pm. Bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed, trimmed of fat 2 Cups of White grape juice, Juicy Juice Brand Mccormick Poultry Seasoning [Go ahead, SEASON IT!] Ground pepper 3 Tablespoons of Mitsukan Rice Vinegar Lime juice After an hour, I added: 6 Shallots, peeled and halved 3 large carrots, peeled and cut Garlic, entire bulb, peeled 1/2 bunch of celery, diced Three hours into cooking on high, at about 4pm, I added 5 Russet potatoes, peeled and cubed After 4 hours of cooking on high, the chicken was cooked well. I turned the heat down to warm and then added the White button mushrooms, 1/2 pound, cleaned & halved. I didn't need to add salt, because this was served up with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls at dinnertime. I understand the whole idea of Crockpot cooking is to place all the ingredients in at once and walk out the door. However, this recipe was still very easy and wasn't much of an inconvenience to me at all. If anything, make it ahead and serve it up later in the week. I gave the recipe five stars because it turned o
Sounded way better than finished productWe do a lot of cooking and this was very disappointing as it turned into a mushy and poor way to bring out the best of the ingredients. We threw it out! Sorry. Maybe better featured as a braised recipe.Pros: IngredientsCons: Slow cooker decimated ingredients and no taste!

Listened to the others. Bland but good with work. Added extra wine and lots of extra seasonings. Potatoes were way overcooked. I didn't enjoy the shallots or garlic being so large so next time I will finely chop both.

Comfort Food I love the wholesome taste of this dish. I don't think it was intended to be "bursting" with robust flavor, but is a mild dish to be enjoyed as such. I did not have rosemary on hand and instead used an Italian herb mix. I cut the sweet potatoes in quarters since the first time I prepared this they were overcooked. Perfect dish for crock pot cooking. Pros: Easy to fix Cons: None
delicious! I made this last night for my boyfriend and I and we loved it! Only changes I made: didn't have white wine so I substituted chicken broth, and added thyme because people said it was bland. It came out great; even my picky 2-year-old ate it. It was even better the next day!

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 http://superfoodsyear.blogspot.com/2010/11/chicken-and-sweet-potato-stew-guests.html. 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!
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?
Following the comments here, I used three boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into chunks, chunked the sweet potato, added more wine, cooked on high for three hours, and added the mushrooms only for the last hour. Delicious -- my husband has already requested it again!
Needs work: veggies should be cut smaller, chicken should be boneless thighs cut in cubes. Also needs chicken broth for additional liquid and to flavor the chicken.
It had no flavor. Not something I will make again.
