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

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.

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.

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!

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.
