    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)


    Needless to say this was one of the most delicious meals I've had involving chicken. Having never used a slow cooker before, the preparation was quick and painless. For those who want more bang and less meat, I would suggest adjusting this recipe to include two of each bell peppers, and decrease the amount of sauces to 3 quarters, as there was just too much chicken, and was a little too spicy for our typical Western tastes.  -  14 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
