2017-03-26: This need more spice. Used four boneless chicken thighs and cooked half the time on the high setting as "low" is not sufficient for the amount of time specified.
Next time sauté veggies first; sauté chicken in butter then put in crockpot.
Use all chicken broth rather than a combination of water and broth.
