MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 27, 2016

"This was very good! I used 8 boneless/skinless thighs and it was done in about 5 hours. Next time I will cut way back on or eliminate the oil completely. It really didn't need to be there. It's a very different BBQ flavor but we really enjoyed it."

"We loved the sauce....probably don't need as much oil though."

"I made this. It was easy and fun. And probably could do without the 1/4 cup of oil. The taste and flavor was unlike anything I ever experienced. Yum. Tender fall off the bone chicken."

MY REVIEW

"Chicken was nice and moist - but it becomes very challenging to eat with so many bones, etc. to filter through. The sauce flavour was ok."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 22, 2016

"I cut the recipe in 1/2 to fit in my mini crock pot for one. It tastes good, probably would use less brown sugar next time. Used red wine and some basalmic vinegar in place of wine vineegar which I don't keep in the pantry.."
