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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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