I forgot to say that the house did smell heavenly while it was cooking!

I have to admit, it turned out more like chicken soup, not stew. The broth was good, the spices were right. I think to make it more stew-like it needed to be thickened a bit.

All in all, it was good. I think that next time, I would use fresh garlic.
I'm glad that I used my own chicken stock. Otherwise, I think that with just water it would have been much too bland.

I'm always the kind of cook to try a recipe without adding, or taking away something the first time. Then I will try again, making a few changes.

So, next time I will thicken it with a little cornstarch, to make it more like stew.

All of the ingredients are in the crockpot, it's early, and it's just starting to cook. I can't wait for supper!
The slow cooker makes it easy, and the house will smell good all day.
I'll let you know how I like it.
Happy cooking, Sparkers.
