My dearly loved mother, whose nickname is Bou, made this often when we were kids. We all still love it! The sauce goes well over mashed potatoes or rice as a side dish.

Just made this dish the other night...it was wonderful. However I used the sauce as a marinade and basting for chicken on the grill. It was wonderful...the chicken had flavor and was really moist. Try this alternative!!! Read More

This was horrible! It tasted like an over-sweetened cocktail sauce and no matter how many spices I put in I couldn't combat the tooth-aching sweetness of the sauce! Read More

I have to admit I thought this was not going to be something I would like. I thought it would be way too sweet for me but my kids would eat it. It was GREAT! Simple quick and cheap. When it was done the meat was falling off the bone and the falvor was excellent. My wife and I put just a hint of tobasco on our portions to "mature" the flavor just a little and I returned to the computer to add it to my recipe box. Thanks. Read More

This is an excellent beginning. To spice it up a bit I added ginger (2 tsp) and curry powder (2 tsp). I used brown sugar instead of the white and will probably use honey next time. I must admit that I am somewhat of a reckless cook as I did not mix the ingredients in the order listed.:) Read More

I can't make this enough. My family eats it and fast. Even when I make extra it goes to school and to work with everyone. The sauce is beyond discription and when you serve it on rice it is amazing. To any of you who have not tried this it is somewhat like sweet n sour chicken but BETTER!!! Read More

This is a fast meal that tastes like you slaved over it. I am always looking for different chicken recipies as we love chicken. I used chicken breasts and used an earlier suggestion to simmer for 1/2 hour. Turned out perfect. Would make again! Read More

This was AWESOME!!! I even shared it with my neighbor. I thought it was going to be sweet but it wasn't. Next time I'm adding an onion and some garlic. (It's the Italian in me - gotta have garlic). I use boneless breast cut into pieces and it turned out fabulous. Why fuss with bones? I also served it over brown rice and poured the extra sauce over it all. FANTASTIC!!! Read More

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. It was quick and easy to make and within about an hour supper was ready to be served. I think that I would add a little extra spice to give it a little more kick the next time that I make it and I will make it again. Read More
