I have been making this recipe for many years now. Like others, I reduce the water to 1 cup. I also use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. My family loves it with some homemade coleslaw and baked beans. Yum!

It's easy to let one bad apple (in this case a review) spoil everything, but I went ahead and tried this because taste of home recipes are usually great. This. Was. FANTASTIC! followed the recipe except for cutting the water in half like other reviews said (good call) AND I added a teaspoon of liquid smoke--YUM! I highly recommend! Next time I might sub in cider vinegar.

Love this recipe. I cut the water down to 1 cup and used boneless chicken instead, to cut the fat.

I cut the water in half after reading the comments. My family loved the recipe and I will definitely make it again. The recipe does need to be revise though, with 1/2 the amount of water.

The recipe was easy to follow. I thought the ratio to liquid was fine. I felt as if it lacked the flavor I was expecting. While eating I realized I'd made it before and felt the same way. It's at least equal to the barbecued chicken you can purchase in the warehouse stores.

If I could give this negative stars I would. what a waste of a chicken... followed recipe exactly as written against my better judgement. All that was tasted was the vinegar, it was bitter and sour and gross. i tried to get my husband to try it a second time the next night after trying to fix it and it was still inedible. don't waste your chicken!

A little too much water, needed a little more hot sauce.

This recipe is a hit at potlucks. Is very good made with grocery store rorisserie chicken and is a great slow-cooker Friday or Saturday night meal. I serve with a salad or with cole-slaw and corn on the cob
