MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2013

"We both found this indelible. May have been because Hickory smoked flavour BBQ sauce was used. I am now not convinced that any BBQ SAUCE would go with marmalade. Sorry to be so negative. My taste Level: includes

sophisticated gourmet and Internat'l food as well as simpler levels"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 26, 2013

"Any time I can find a good slow cooker recipe, I'll save it. I modified it slightly by using boneless, skinless breasts, thighs and legs. Saves a lot of time not having to cut-up & skin chicken. I used Smucker's marmalade & KC Masterpiece Bar B Q sauce."
