So yummy! Sooooo easy!! About 10 minutes to prepare, press the 6-hour button, and anxiously await. I've made this a handful of times, and each and every time it is DELISH. Enjoy!

Impatient as I am, I made this in a pressure cooker. 15 minutes at high pressure (with b/s thighs, which I lightly browned first) the meat was as tender as slow cooked.

Made this last night and it was delicious!! I didn't have the time to cook it for 8 hours so I cooked it for about 4-5hours, it was perfect. The chicken was tender, flavorful and so so delicious!!<br />I recommend this recipe as it is very easy to prepare, its so health because you don't use butter, oil or salt!!! <br />I served it with a side of hot quinoa and will be making this again SOON!

Made this last night - it was great! <br /> <br />Definitely had to cook the entire 8 hours, and I used bone-in, skin-on thighs, which were really delicious. <br /> <br />Also, I recommend this is served with bread - don't waste any of the sauce!

What would be considered Greek seasoning?? I don't know if I can find this in my grocery store, but I am sure that I could find the individual components if you could give me a run down of what they are.
