I recommend doubling the recipe so you have more sauce.

This recipe was wonderful! I doubled the amount of sauce, added 2 tbsp apricot preserves and simmered in the crock pot for 2 hours. My friends all loved it and I'll be making it many many times over. Sweet and yummy!!!

Simple easy, quick & delicious what more can you ask from a recipe. I agree with the comments that a bit more sauce would be nice and as I did not want to add more sugar I added 4 tbsp vodka to the sugar mixture and baked them at a lower temperature (to co-ordinate the timing with the other dishes I was baking) then finished them under the broiler, beautiful carmelized color. I also added more garlic (personal preference). I served the chicken with baked potatoes stuffed with sundried tomatoes and Feta cheese, new carrots and baked baby onions and a small green salad - wonderful Sunday dinner - Thanks Dancer for another great recipe
