Reviews for Barbecued Chicken Sandwiches
Sort By :
"I cut the water in half after reading the comments. My family loved the recipe and I will definitely make it again. The recipe does need to be revise though, with 1/2 the amount of water."
"The recipe was easy to follow. I thought the ratio to liquid was fine. I felt as if it lacked the flavor I was expecting. While eating I realized I'd made it before and felt the same way. It's at least equal to the barbecued chicken you can purchase in the warehouse stores."
"If I could give this negative stars I would. what a waste of a chicken... followed recipe exactly as written against my better judgement. All that was tasted was the vinegar, it was bitter and sour and gross. i tried to get my husband to try it a second time the next night after trying to fix it and it was still inedible. don't waste your chicken!"
"A little too much water, needed a little more hot sauce."
"This is a very easy recipe and very tasty. Even my picky toddlers ate them!"
