My husband made some tweaks from the original recipe to suit our tastes and it was fabulous. Our 18 month-old son even loves this chicken recipe! It's the perfect way for me to get out of cooking for a night. —Stacy Kolojay, Streator, Illinois

This is delicious. I've made it several times and will make it several more times. I've also shared the recipe with friends and have gotten many thanks. My grandkids also love this.

My family enjoyed this recipe. The root beer ingredient interested me and the sauce turned out sweet and mild and my youngest even liked it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 12, 2013

I found this tolerable, but no one else liked it at all. I tried to use the leftovers in salads the next night and that was not a hit either.

I too wasn't sure about this recipe since I have NEVER cooked with Root Beer, but this was one of the most raved about chicken recipe's! My kids just loved it. I will be making this again for sure. Thanks for a great recipe!
