I've made this several times, and it is a winner! We like dark meat in our family. I serve with spaghetti. The chicken falls off the bone! Anything leftover, I pull the meat off the bones, and mix it in with the sauce and any leftover pasta, and it's like another whole meal. I have a large crock pot, so I add additional liquid to keep the chicken moist.

This recipe was fantastic! The chicken came out so juicy and tender and the crushed red pepper added a welcome spicy kick! I definitely recommend this dish.

This is one of my favorite recipes. Love it with the egg noodles!!!

This was very good - but not 5 stars. Easy to make. I cooked on high so it was ready in 3 hours. I served the chicken already shredded/deboned as my husband does not like to eat meat on bones.

Good, considering how easy this is to make. The flavor isn't complex, but it's still good. I would add more garlic and less sugar next time. It was pretty sweet I served the chicken and sauce over egg roodles with a side of steamed broccoli.

We loved this. I used skinless, boneless breasts, cut into pieces. Next time I will use only one-half tsp. red pepper flakes since we like things a little less spicy. It was very easy to make and made enough for leftovers.

Delicious. I added one can of diced tomatoes.

My fiance and I loved this! I had been craving cacciatore for a while and this definitely hit the spot. He raved about it for days after, and ate every bit of the leftovers. Next time I would use a little less onion (since I'm not the biggest fan) and a lot more mushrooms, since that's how I always had it as a kid. I served it over egg noodles, but next time I will do it over mashed potatoes for my fiance. Definitely adding this to the menu again!

Family loved this! I omitted mushrooms and increased broth to 1 cup. Served with vermicelli. Will definitely make again.

Good recipe - easy to make and everybody loved it. Next time I will use boneless chicken so that I don't get slow-cooked chicken bones mixed into the recipe.

This recipe is quite good! I omitted the mushrooms because I hate them and reduced the brown sugar to 1 tbsp, and didn't miss it. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and was happy with the result. Will make again.

Delicious! The chicken fell right off the bone, very tender. I will definitely make again.
