It’s a winner! I added carrot and cauliflower to the dish and then greens for the last half hour. I also cooked up rice but with the vegetables in the dish there was no need for rice.. we all loved it and will definitely make it again.

The balsamic flavour was a little to overpowering for our taste buds, but in saying that it did taste good.

The balsamic was a bit over powering for my kids, but myself and my husband enjoyed it.

Made this last night and was a massive hit with the family. May cook a little less time tho as my slow cooker cooks hotter. Saved the sauce for later stage. Cant wait to make again!!

Was unsure of taste with so much vinegar BUT loved the taste once cooked.
Definitely a keeper.

Did this last week. Didn’t use sugar because of honey in recipe. Tasted delicious, very similar to Ken Homs Master Sauce but cheaper. Will be doing again.

Chicken was tender and delicious. A little too sweet for us, so next time will half the brown sugar and honey.
