"This recipe is awesome. I made it to the letter. It came out tender, juicy and delicious. After cutting meat from the bone we spooned the sauce over the meat. Definately a keeper in our kitchen. Thanks George, great recipe."

"I noted that the first reviewer said this made a lot of sauce and it looked like it would make a lot to me too, so I halved the sauce recipe. While eating the chicken, my husband said, "The sauce is good, but there's not enough of it." lol"

"My kids LOVED this, and it was really very easy to make. Next time I'll add in more chicken pieces, as it makes a lot of sauce. With the leftover pieces, I pulled the meat off the bones and tossed it with the sauce for sandwiches the next day. DELISH!"
