I followed this recipe exactly and am trying to figure out how it got so many stars. The chicken was dry despite there being so much liquid in the crock pot. It smelled like Sloppy Joes; I was afraid it would taste that way too and my fears were confirmed when we sat down to eat. No one in my house ate it, thankfully I had a frozen pizza that I could pop in the oven because this was not good at all.
3.5 stars. I agree with the previous reviewer - the sauce was a bit watery. I'd also reduce the cooking time to 3 hours as I thought the chicken got a little too dry. I did enjoy the sauce. We made sliders with the chicken instead of one big burger. Served with an Asian style slaw. Would make again.
Made this last night - it was superb! Made it exactly as written, no substitutions and will make again and again. Served with a tomato, cucumber, red onion and avocado salad and potato salad. Absolutely delicious!
Super easy, super delicious,
I found that the onions released too much water when cooked and therefore made a thin, watery sauce. Also, with the ketchup base and the onions, it doesn't really need any added sweetness from the molasses. I found it too sweet. If I made it again, I would cook onions and chicken without the sauce, strain when done, then toss with sauce.
Very tasty, and affordable ingredients if you already have molasses. Hadn't known it before, but molasses are what give bbq sauce its distinctive smell. You can sub molasses for bbq if you don't want to shell out $5 for a tablespoon of the stuff and possibly never use it again. Personally dislike bbq sauce, so I quartered the molasses. Also like things a bit more saucy, so next time I plan to double ketchup quantity. Recipe halves well for 3 and 2qt cookers. Thanks for this!
Incredilbly delicious while diet friendly- so nice to enjoy BBQ while avoiding pork. Recommmend wholeheartedly!
Delicious!! Tastes every bit as good as pulled pork but without all the fat. Put it together in 10 minutes, cook 4-5 hours, and it's ready to eat. I added some smoky mesquite bbq sauce at the end to spice it up a little, then served it on toasted cibatta buns. It was a hit.
This recipe is so easy and delicious! Every time I make it I am still surprised at how tender the chicken is - it just falls apart! I serve it topped with some crunchy, creamy coleslaw on a wheat bun... YUM!
