I was pleasantly surprised at how good this tasted. I just didn't feel like cooking and thought that if it didn't taste good it was not a long list of expensive ingredients. Scaled to 3 servings. Added tsp. each garlic and onion powder. Only had diet coke with lime but thought that would work well. While it was cooking it didn't smell all that great. What a surprise when I lifted the lid and tasted the sauce and couldn't believe the depth of flavor! I have quite a descriminating palate and couldn't believe how good this was for being a simpleton recipe! Served with some basmati rice and fresh steamed broccoli and it was a great meal. The chicken itself was nice and tender. Used 3 deskinned bone-in breasts. Read More

This is a great recipe but it is bland if you don't add to it (i.e. onions garlic pwdr...etc.). You first should cook on high heat until it boils then reduce to med-high. Cover it in the beginning and then uncover for the last bit of cooking time. Read More

This is a recipe that is a favorite of ours. I have made this several times and it is very good. Chicken comes out moist and tastes a lot like barbeque chicken. I used the boneless skinless chicken breasts and use diet cola. I usually shred the leftovers and make a sandwich for lunch. Very tasty you've got to try it. And it doesn't get any easier than this!! Enjoy! Read More

At first I didn't really get this recipe. I tried it though and the sauce didn't thicken and become a gooey delicious mess however I think I was simmering it at too low a temperature. I think higher simmer to allow for a full boil. However I tried the leftovers the next day and it was delicious! Read More

wicked good! did add some stuff though. i browned the chicken first and also added veggies: onion garlic carrots celery and red peppers (was trying to use them up). SO GOOD! was iffy on letting it boil for so long...but you def have to do it to get it to thicken up. would be great to serve up to a house full of peeps:o) Read More

This is a super easy quick meal esp when you don't feel like cooking!! I made a few moderations: I used 1 1/2 cans Diet Pepsi and 1 1/2 c. ketchup. I also browned some chopped onion & garlic before adding the chicken/sauce. Also added a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce to it. Great flavor! Chicken was super moist! Read More

Delicious! This will definitely become a regular in our family. I love the fact that the ingredients are things that are generally in the pantry. I used boneless chicken breast took them out of the pot after 30 minutes and shredded them returned them to the pot during the last 30 minutes of cooking. Came out perfectly made a wonder pulled chicken sandwich. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Read More
