"This is a very tasty dish and my family loved it. I followed the recipe and made no changes. This even tastes great the next day."

"Great recipe for chicken thighs. I also thought the sauce was thin so I removed the chicken after it was cooked, raised the flame under the pot and let the sauce cook down to the desired consistency. Delicious!"

"I did use regular pepsi, fresh garlic and also added a pinch of salt and pepper to the recipe. It turned out much better, I'm sure, using the changes. The sauce ended up being perfect as well as the chicken tender."

"There wasn't enough flavor to satisfy my family. It's very unusual for me to have to throw away any leftovers, but some of this ended up In the wastebasket. I hate to give a mediocre review, so I offer our experience with a grain of salt. :("

"This came out great, I do use regular cola but plan on trying DR. Pepper next time I make this. I use italian seasoning and fresh garlic. I also add in onion powder to taste. Instead of putting the lid on for the first part of the cooking leave the lid adajar and the sauce will thicken much better."

"It did not look like the picture...the sauce did not thicken like pictured. I used regular cola instead of diet. The taste was good and my kids ate it, so I'll definitely make again."

"Definitely a keeper. I did not have plain oregano so I used a blended Italian seasoning and it was finger lickin' good. Even my sons friends asked for seconds!"
