    Laudee's Note:

    This recipe was given to me many years ago by a family friend. I have no idea where she got it.It's very simple to fix; not much fuss. The ingredients for the sauce gave me cause for pause when I first read them, but this is a delicious tasting dish. You're in for a plesant surprise.

      This was a real winner in my house!! I used 7 skinless chicken legs quarters and there were no leftovers!! (Our exchange student polished off 3 in one sitiing!!) I was curious about the ingredients in the sauce, but they blended together nicely to make a very tasty sauce. I actually made these in the oven in a covered casserole dish with great results. I think that this would work very well in a crock pot too! Thanks for sharing this recipe! I am glad I picked you as "my chef"!

      Very nice dish. I used chicken breasts, so I reduced the cooking time to 1 1/2 hrs. I think I'll try it with bone in skinless thighs next time only because I believe they have much more flavor. :)<br/>Update: I have used this recipe with boneless/skinless chicken thighs and they are equally delicious.

      This is a great recipe! I used chicken breasts and they were so tender (and fully cooked after an hour). I also added pineapple and red bell pepper and substituted pineapple juice for some of the maple syrup. The sauce was a little more sour than sweet. I might add a little brown sugar next time.
