    Loved this recipe! Next time I will make it with chicken breasts, though, as my family prefers them.

    I do not like honey - what can I use as a substitute?

    I'm not a honey fan, either. I'd probably use light brown sugar, but I bet you could also use molasses. (Wouldn't want to guess at the quantity, though!)

    Great suggestions, Barb. If you use molasses or corn syrup, use about the same amount. If using sugar or brown sugar, I would increase the amount to 3/4 cup. Melt the sugar or brown sugar first over very low heat. Watch it carefully, though, as it will burn VERY fast once it liquifies.

    Everyone enjoyed it. I ran the cooker on the highest setting (for about 8 minutes, with the lid off, to reduce the sauce a bit. I would make this again.

    quick question, I noticed a button "add to cookbook" where is the cookbook and how do I get to it? I am assuming its to save recipes you like and I like this recipe :) Any help would be great! Thanks so much!

    The kids loved this. The adults thought the sauce was too sweet. Make sure not to overcook. Chicken gets dry easily in the crockpot.

    is there a way to make it taste a little less sweet

    When I made it, I did not use honey simply because I was out; instead, I used some oranges that I had. Chopped them up and put them in there. It was not sweet that way.

    @Carrie, that's a good suggestion. @Anonymous, barbeque sauce tends to be a little sweet sometimes. I find that the Kraft brand is less sweet. Or you could make your own. Here's my recipe: 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce, 1 cup ketchup, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 1/2 tbsp white vinegar, 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup lemon juice (2 lemons), 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp coarse black pepper, 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, dash of Tabasco sauce. Combine in a sauce pot and simmer until slightly thickened. It's not too sweet and my husband LOVES it!

    I like to use the KC Masterpiece original, or Cattleman's is really good as well.

    quick question... only 5 hours on low? I have a setting for low 8 or 10 I chose 8..... should I check after 5 hours?

    Yes, you can. I let mine cook all day and the meat was falling apart. I added some baked beans to it also, made it very thick and creamy and the chicken would just shred.

    Oh my goodness, my family inhaled these. I added a little extra hot sauce. The meat fell right off the bone. So good and so easy to prepare. I did these in my dutch oven at 325 for 1 hr 45 min

    This burned some of the chicken in the ccrock pot on the lowest setting after 3 and 1/2 hours

    I've done these several times. the best end result was in my Dutch oven. In the crock pot it did burn a little one time, I happened to catch it before it really burned. every crock pot is different and cooks different...I added an additional 4tbsp of water to the pot, this took care of the burning and it did not change the flavor at all. remember to keep liquid in your crock pot for recipes like this, add by the tablespoon so you don't risk losing flavor

    Very good. I recommend using a vinegary and less sugary bbq sauce so that it isn't way to sweet at the end, since you are adding a large amount of honey to the recipe.
