This is similar to a recipe that I have in which you bake the chicken. It was good, but I would stick to my original recipe over this one.

I've made this recipe several times and gotten great results every time; compliments from adult guests and a hit with kids. I have one picky eater child, in our family, and this is his favorite meal. The regular (more adventurous) eaters love it, too.

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.

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.
