MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2014

My kids love this and they generally do not like chicken. My husband actually requested that I make it again for the kids which is the first sign of him remotely planning a meal since we were married 20 years ago!

Love this recipe. I've found it works well with any type of chicken. I always use less brown sugar & add some cayenne pepper for some heat. This dish goes great with the Lemon Rice from this site also.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2013

We really liked this easy recipe. I added a little extra brown sugar based on the other reviews, and it was excellent. Still tangy and not too sweet, which was great. I turned my slow cooker on high for about an hour close to the end, and then turned in back down to low for the last 45 minutes. It was fall off the bone tender and very tasty. We'll make this one again!
