Great chicken! Used bone-in chicken drumsticks and also skipped some of the ingredients for the sauce that I didn't have -- wonderful and top it off uses mostly pantry ingredients that are on hand, so no long grocery list! Thanks for sharing!

This was great. Mild mexican flavor with lots of sauce. I used a little bit differnt technique. I made up spanish rice in my rice cooker. Then I put the chicken and sauce in a foil packet in the steamer basket of the rice cooker and in about 30 mins dinner was complete. Supper easy and tasty thanks for posting.

We really enjoyed these. The flavor is more like a barbecue sauce. Next time I'm going to increase the chili powder to give it more of a Mexican flavor. I used pheasant breast and they came out nice and juicy. This will be going in my pheasant cookbook. Thanks for posting.:)

This is a great way to prepare chicken legs. I love the barbeque-type sauce and the fact that I could throw this together quickly and forget about it for 2 hours while it cooked. The slow cooking method makes for very tender chicken. Yum! Made for Photo Tag

We loved this chicken dish Boomette! I agree with TeresaS that it is more of a BBQ flavour than a Mexican flavour as it is not at all spicy. I was surprised how well the sauce stuck to the chicken legs because it looked very thin when I started cooking it. I basted the chicken every 20-30 minutes and spooned off the fat a few times. (I left the skin on a few of the chicken legs since the kids prefer it that way.) I did omit the tsp of salt and the cayenne pepper. I will be making this again for sure. Thx so much!

Great recipe. I prepared the night before by marinating my chicken thighs overnight in the sauce. The next morning I dumped into a crockpot, set the timer for noon on low, and 6 hours later had a tender, fall apart chicken supper. I thought it could use a little more kick (if we're really talking Mexican!). Next time I'll increase the heat spices. Made for Every Day is a Holiday tag.

Yummy! I used chicken breasts that were kinda thick -- cooked for 1 1/2 hours. The chicken was perfect. Nice and tender and juicy. I really enjoyed the sauce too. What a great supper. It's even easy enough that my husband made it all by himself -- and he doesn't cook! Thanks so much for posting!

Made for Newest Zaar Tag 2008. Made these over the weekend. All I can say is "yummy" These were so easy and the chicken just fell off the bones! Will definitely make this again. Thanks Boomette for posting this!

Used chicken breasts and used a little less ketchup and no brown sugar. The chicken was tender and very tasty. Made for Zaar Tag. Thanks Boomette!! :)
