What a tangy yummy dish! I used red peppers and substituted Splenda for the sugar. Cooked for 6 hours on low in the crokpot, and the chicken turned out tender and juicy, and the sauce smelled my house up all afternoon!
Good stuff, cooked in crock pot all afternoon...a little too sweet for my taste but wife and daughters think it is a winner. Cooked pre recipe but did not have any celery.
