Really good. Made it for a party of 30 people. Doubled the recipe except for the sugar and added an onion and garlic powder and it was well received from the guests. recipe was requested from guests.

Simple and tasty. I used frozen chicken breast, dumped all the ingredients on top in the slow cooker and cooked on high for 4 hours. The sauce was very thin like another poster pointed out, but I removed the breasts, added a slurry of 1 TBSP cornstarch and 2 TBSP water to the remaining sauce, boiling for a minute or two and it coated the chicken nicely. Served with buttered noodles and broccoli, enjoyed by all. Going in the keeper file! Thanks for posting.

This is really good and really easy! I read other reviews and I only put 3/4 c. brown sugar. I used French's yellow mustard and 4 quite large chicken breasts. I placed the still-frozen chicken in the crock pot, mixed the sauce ingredients together, poured it over the chicken, and cooked it on LOW for 8 hours. With the frozen chicken, it makes the sauce pretty thin (because of the ice), but it still tasted great. I served this with Recipe #42564 and veggies for a really good meal. I was thinking that, with thicker sauce, it'd be good as shredded chicken on a toasted roll too. I'll make this one again for sure. Thanks for posting it!
