    Using all the ingredients (without the water) I cooked this in the slow cooker (4 hours. Easy to prepare and delicious.  -  17 Aug 2011


    I have made this many times since I found the recipe earlier in the year. A real winner, when my family in law comes over I leave out the chorizo as they dont eat it but love it either way. It is not a recipe you need to do a couple times to get it right. Real simple and the outcome is special.  -  09 Nov 2009


    this is delicious! Didnt add water, put extra paprika and a lot of chilli powder and added 5 minutes to grill the chicken to give it a nice color. Very yummy!  -  01 Aug 2012
