    This one did not turn out well for me at all. I want to give it another shot, but will prep it differently next time – saute & brown the chicken instead of crock pot prep and keep the dressing out until serving day. I tried it today for lunch and couldn’t eat it after it was defrosted. Disappointed because it had a lot of promise based on the ingredients :(
