    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

    This was wonderful! I used 3 nice, plump skinless, boneless chicken breasts and it reached the 'pulled pork' consistency after 6 hrs on low. I poured the juice in a saucepan and boiled with 1 T cornstarch mixed with 1 T water until sauce thickened slightly. Then I poured sauce back over shredded chi - 9/29/15

    I have a 24 yr old son who lives with me because his job keeps him on the road more than home, but after I made this, when he does come home, it is the first home cooked meal he asks for, along with the cauliflower rice I make to go with it. Great easy recipe! (the rice, not so much) ;) - 12/22/13

    This is the worst recipe I've ever tried. I am a foodie I love the Food Network and I cook constantly. I don't mind easy quick recipes with flavor, but this is a bland watery stringy meat mess, I am floored that so many people think this is actually good food.... - 3/2/16

  • Ahh, this was great! I used breasts instead of thighs, left out the soy sauce and put in a tiny bit of sweet/spicy mustard and cajun seasoning. The meat...ahh it just fell apart and was so good! I had it with brown rice for dinner and the next day for lunch on a whole wheat English muffin. Yum! - 2/22/16

  • Just ok. I was expecting the sauce to be more of what the picture shows. I enjoy dishes that look colorful and pretty and this looked like a pile of colorless chicken on top of rice. I threw a bag of peas in it just to give it some color. I added creole seasoning to my rice to spice it up to make it - 2/14/16
