Reviews for Peachy Barbecue Chicken
"Just made this tonight and it was delicious! Since there is only two of us, I halved the recipe. I didn't have water chestnuts but otherwise made the recipe as written. I will be making this again!"
"Delicious dinner! I served this over white rice with egg rolls on the side. Perfect blend of sweet and savory."
"I love this recipe: quick and easy and my whole family eats it!!! It is easy and quick, but looks great enough for company. A "go-to" recipe. Thank you!"
"I cut it down to servings for two and did it in the slow cooker on low for 4 1/2 hours. It was very good."
"Loved it! Rave reviews from my family. Will definitely do again."
"I cut out the step of adding flour to the chicken breast halves; also, the sauce I cut in half because it was alot considering this dish is only for 8 guests. It was very quick and easy!"
