    HI, changed recipe the chilli sauce to a splash of good strong soy sauce, only about a tbsp of BBQ sauce, no garlic & added a 440g can of diced tomatoes, 2 carrots, 3 bacon short cuts & changed chicken to turkey breasts - tasted great. Added Udon noodles to leftovers for a change.  -  24 Aug 2015


    This is a very easy and quick meal to throw together in the slow cooker. I found it a little too sweet, but my husband thought it was wonderful. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce because it's what I had, but would imagine you could control the sweetness by using a different kind of BBQ sauce. I served it over rice and would make it again.  -  03 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    tasted too tomato-ey to me. I decided to take pineapple juice from can of pineapple in it's own juice, with about a TBS of cornstarch and a TBS of brown sugar and make a slightly thick sauce in a sauce pan and adding to it. Family loved it. I think I might try this recipe again, with slight variation to ingredients.  -  15 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
