Reviews for Sweet and Saucy Chicken
"This had a good taste but my sauce came out really runny. When I cooked it on the stove it was thick but thinned out during the crock pot cooking process. I followed the recipe as written other then I used boneless chicken breasts."
"When the chicken is done, it's so tender it just falls off the bone!"
"This was awesome. My husband and I ate this delicious chicken until we were stuffed! Only made two changes. I did not have any white vinegar, so I used regular apple cider vinegar and since we do not eat dark meat, I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and wings. Also, the sauce was absolutely delicious over the rice."
"This is a very tasty dish to come home to after a long days work. Very tasty, and hearty when served over rice. However I will switch to boneless pieces next time."
"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."
"I used thighs and they were yummy!!!!!!!!!"
"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."
