You rated this recipe ONE STAR without even trying it??? That's ridiculous and incredibly unhelpful. :(

I agree. It is unfair to the person who created the recipe to give it one star without trying it!

Made this today. Chicken and veggies tender and delicious but this has a weird flavor. I used a very nice point noir for the wine so the only ingredient that could have tainted was the McCormick slow cooker flavor packet. Very strange flavor. I will never make this again. Yuk!
