Very good, easy way to cook chicken. I used Worcestershire sauce, instead of soy sauce. The chicken came out very moist & falling apart. Read More

I also used Worcestershire sauce in lieu of soya, started on high (which I found gave a browning effect) then back to slow. The outcome was incredible. Such an easy recipe (even for me)!!! Read More

This was so simple and delicious!!! The Perdue chicken I cooked was a little bit larger than 3 pounds; so I did the math and cooked it longer. This is a succulent time saver. It was also fresher and cheaper than buying frozen tenderloins for recipes. Read More

Excellent. I note that I m not a big salt eater and soy sauce is naturally salty. Nevertheless it was fantastic. I balanced the flavor with roasted cabbage and potatoe salad and it was a perfect blend! Highly recommended! Read More

Ah This has I have tried on all recipes and I have tried many many I don't understand why it has to have a bone in chicken especially with the fatty Parts on it I had to continuously pick out bones before I could serve it and the hunks of fat and skin we're not worth it and dishing it up it was so dry that I had to add more shots I won't do this one ever again Read More
