  1. So quick and easy to prepare and has the best flavour. Like Toni said, the sauce was just right, not too sweet or gluggy!

  2. Made this last night. Didn’t have BBQ sauce so used Sweet Chilli sauce instead. Yummy. Will definitely make again.

  3. I made this it cooked in four hours,and I ate it the night after and thickened sauce then,it was delicious ,love this easy recipe.

  4. Made this a couple of times now and everyone really enjoys it, I used a mixture of thighs and drumsticks with skin removed ( I find it less fatty this way) It’s a really quick and easy recipe. I put a tea towel under the lid during cooking and didn’t need to thicken the sauce at all. This will be one of our regular sc recipes

  5. Made this toad with chicken thigh fillets. Only other change was I chucked (spilled actually) in sweet chilli sauce. Winner with hubby’s approval. Will definitely be making it agai. Thanks for the inspiration

  6. Made this last night (drumsticks) and Oh Em Gee it was GOOD!!!! We served over chips, with all that yummy sauce on them as well, along with a side of green beans.
    We will definitely be having this again!

  7. My family and I tried this meal and it was absolutely delicious! It was so simple and had so much flavour, definitely one our favourite slow cooked meals. We shredded the chicken and put it over potato gems with bacon and cheese and it was amazing, so yummy! Thank you for this beautiful recipe.

  8. Such an easy, and really tasty recipe. The whole fam love it. We use thigh fillets. Sometimes we have it with mash and veg, sometimes we have with rice (and stir fry veg).

  9. This was so easy even I could do it and sooo delicious. I used thigh cutlets skin and fat removed, tripled the garlic and also used the tea towel.
    5hrs on low. Yummo diddleo!

  10. Had this tonight with basmati rice and chilli garlic broccolini. Was devoured with gusto by the teenagers, and is now on the cook again list! Thanks, an easy delicious dinner after a hot day!

  11. Was deeeelish!
    Didn’t change a thing, sweet and tangy, served with mash & veg.
    Left lid off for last 20 minutes of cooking for the sauce to thicken (used tea towel under lid)

  12. Oh yum. Beautiful dish. I made it with chicken thighs and served with tagliatelle. Also so easy to prepare.
    So good

  13. Cooked this last night for dinner, it was absolutely delicious. When hubby asked what I was making when he saw the ingredients on the bench he was a bit iffy about whether he would like it because of the bbq sauce. He couldn’t stop mentioning how nice it smelt while it was cooking. Served with mash and vegetables, well he was full of compliments and said he would definitely love to have it again. Winner, Winner with this one. ??
