I can't remember were this recipe came from, but I've been making it for several years. Everyone who tries it enjoys it. When the chicken is done cooking, it's so tender it falls off the bone.—Mrs. Patricia Weir, Chilliwack, British Columbia

MY REVIEW

I used boneless chicken thighs. I found it to be almost too sweet, but that could have been from using dark brown sugar. If I make it again, I'll try it with light brown sugar. It was very easy to make. I layered the chicken with the sauce and served it over noodles.

Made this for my family and they loved it. I used boneless thighs instead of a whole chicken and it was wonderful. Served it over rice. The sauce was perfect. This is a keeper.

This is a very delicious meal. The chicken just falls off the bones it is so tender and moist. The sauce accents rice perfectly. It is one that I will make again and again! I did double the sauce so that I would have extra for the rice and because I did not have white vinegar I used apple cider vinegar instead but it was still wonderful.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 5, 2014

This was some of the best chicken I've ever cooked. I'm not usually a big fan of chicken because I find it to be dry but I thought this might be a recipe my husband would like so I gave it a chance. I'll be making it often. The chicken fell off the bone and was so tender. And the sauce is delicious! I was a little concerned because I have to use gluten-free flour blends so I wasn't sure it would thicken it enough. It definitely did and served over gluten-free egg noodles...YUM! My husband in on his third helping as I type this.
