Fabulous! I used only three breasts and am glad of that because I don't think there would have been enough sauce for four. My crockpot must also be hotter because the third step only took about 3 1/2 hours and then another half hour for step 5. I noticed it actually boiling on "low".
This stuff rocks! It had the same texture as pulled pork. I used all these ingredients, except the onions. However, I must admit that I added 1 cup Budweiser-flavored BBQ sauce (from Harris Teeter). I guess my "Low" setting on the crockpot must be higher than normal because it only took 4 hrs and 45 min TOTAL, and it was probably done before that.
I used this recipe b/c it had few ingredients and I was in a hurry. In my opinion, the dominating flavor was from the soup. I decided to add some garlic and more Worcester sauce to counter the tomato. It didn't do much so I added 1/2 C of BBQ sauce. It only took 2.5 hours to cook. I used thawed chicken tenderloins and they don't take long. This is very mild and sweet, even boring. My family likes more of a kick and I don't care for sweet meat. So it wasn't well received. I have had the same experience using cola for pulled pork. If you like more of a smokey BBQ taste this recipe won't be to your liking.
