This was very delicious. I used lemon juice instead of the vinegar and didn't bother with thickening the sauce. Served with wild rice and spaghetti squash. My husband and I loved it. Thanks very much...

Excellent recipe Dancer^. I loved the tartness of the sauce it made. Was great over rice. Simple and easy too. I cut up a whole chicken for this and two of us finished it off in one sitting with no problem.

I left the skin on (family preference) and browned it in an iron skillet which I accidentally turned up instead of down when things got a little too busy all at once in my kitchen. I caught it soon enough not to have throw it out. It taste more like barbqued chicken than lemon, but I used homemade "frozen Lemonade" so that could be the reason, but it was still absolutely wonderful. I had a second batch ready to go in when the first crock was done because I wasn't sure if it would taste burnt but it didn't. It was easy to put together. Other than the homemade lemonade, I followed directions and it turned out excellent.
