    I give this recipe 5 stars! I used 6 skinless breasts instead of the dark meat. Everyone commented on how wonderful it smelled while it was cooking and they couldn't wait to dig in. I served it on a bun and also have eaten it on a whole wheat pita. It is juicy and delicious. - 6/25/13

    Very good
    I cooked brown rice and added about 30 min before done and the rice soaked up water making it all come together
    Served with broccoli on top and a salad - 4/16/13

    This was excellent. Even sent out to other friends who love their slow cookers. Only concern, next time I will add a little cornstarch to the water because the sauce came out liquidy. I also will add some sweet onion next time. Chicken was tender and had great flavor! - 4/14/13

    I used non frozen thighs and it was done in 5
    Hours, added a little cornstarch for thickening.
    It was very good. Served over quinoa and a salad.
    Definitely a keeper! - 6/30/13

    Lovely new recipe to add to my slow cooker range. Tender, sweet chicken. I took mine out a bit early and left the lid off the slow cooker to reduce the sauce. Great flavour. - 6/16/13

    TOP NOTCH RECIPE!! I didn't use the crock pot. Instead, I used thawed boneless, skinless thighs, browned and simmered them, then made sauce. I doubled sauce recipe also, we too like more. This recipe is in my monthly menu! - 4/24/13

    Did you remove the skin or is that a given? If you didn't before, did you after the chicken is cooked? I wanted to know it the skin is included in the calorie count. - 6/12/13

    Just made it for my family. I used thawed chicken thighs and it took about 5 hours instead. I LOVE this recipe. I made more sauce ONLY because my family loves extra sauce. I was fine with how it was, though. Good job :) - 4/14/13

    Delicious! I did add a bit of Worcestershire Sauce and finely chopped onion to deepen the flavours. Thanks to other reviews I omitted the water. I agree it would be better with a little thickener to make a nice sauce.
    I will make this again. - 9/5/14

  • I'm reading a lot of complaints about the sauce being too watery...just omit the 1/2 cup water if it's not needed. - 5/2/14

    Really yummy! Like a lot of other people, I used chicken breasts instead of thighs. I pulled the chicken at about the 6 hour mark and cooked for another half an hour. It was perfectly cooked, and soaked up all the sauce - super juicy and tender! Delicious on it's own or on a bun. - 4/14/14

    The sauce was very watery. We used a slotted spoon to drain it when serving. I ate as-is to save calories, but the family put BBQ sauce on it because we didn't think it was flavorful enogh. Even our German exchange student, who is accustomed to less-seasoned foods, was dumping BBQ sauce on it. - 3/2/14

    Thought this was delicious. Looks nothing like the picture, though. To answer another poster's question, yes, after the initial 5-6 hours cooking time is up you need to remove skin and bones. All the fat is present in the sauce, though so I would still include it in calorie/nutrition calculations. - 2/27/14

    This was so good! My family raved about it. I cut the chicken in cubes, browned it in a pan, and added the sauce, simmered about 20 minutes- so good. Used half chicken breast and half chicken thighs and thickened the sauce with cornstarch. My family raved about it and everyone asked for the recipe - 2/23/14
