    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    A delicious recipe for the upcoming fall season. I like using chicken thighs rather than breasts in the crock pot as they stand up better to the longer cooking and add more flavor to the dish. Do not overcook the thighs. Six hours is about as long a cooking time as you'll need. I actually use a little less time. This recipe was posted by Wolverine on the TOHBB.

      Excellent recipe. Made it for Canada's Thanksgiving this past weekend.
      As per Woodland hues suggestion, used a large red onion and 1 12 half cup cranberries. I also used granulated maple sugar instead of brown sugar. I guess I'm lucky I live in Canada... Instead of the extra 12 cup water, I used unsweetened cranberry juice concentrate (I get it from a local farmer at the local farmer's market), and added an extra tablespoon of granulated maple sugar. I mixed the cranberry juice concentrate with the other sauce ingredients. I also used drumsticks, because that's what I had on hand.
      Crockpot chicken often has a "different" taste I'm not too crazy about. Not this chicken. I am not ashamed to say that I licked the plate clean. It's just that good.

      Enjoyed this dish very much and would make again. What's not to like about it? The sauce is fantastic, doubling as gravy to go over mashed potatoes and stuffing, and the cranberries add a tartness that I enjoyed. Used a large onion (so it was very oniony)and 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries, adding 1/2 cup more water to the sauce. Done in 6 hours. Thanks!
