This recipe is terrific, I love it. Changes: I use boneless, skinless chicken breasts and add 2 cloves of crushed garlic to the sauce. I double the sauce but not the onion soup mix, just use one packet. Also, I throw a bunch of chopped onion on the chicken before adding the sauce. I like to take the cover off halfway through cooking so the sauce reduces and thickens.

I did not like this dish; it was bland and boring. I will not make it again.

This was so darn easy. I had some chicken drumsticks to make and had no idea what to do with them when I came across this recipe. I didn't have enuf ketchup to double it, so I added a 1/2 c. of our favorite bbq sauce; YUMMY and there was lots of sauce too. I also layered the bottom of the pan with sliced onions... this will DEFINITELY be a keeper in our house!!!

This was very good, but I doubled the sauce and cooked it the second time uncovered! It gave the chicken a crispier skin and was much better.

I LOVED this recipe!! I would give it 10 stars if I could. I wish I had thought to add onions to the bottom of the pan, as Melissa suggested. Will do that next time. I doubled the ketchup, water and brown sugar; but used only one package of onion soup mix. and the sauce was wonderful on mashed potatoes. Only problem was we ran out of sauce before potatoes; so I will make more sauce next time!

Try this! You won't be sorry. I had a package of chicken thighs and a desire to do something different without having to go shopping for additional ingrediants. Who doesn't have the five ingrdients needed for Chicken Hurry? I prepared as directed except I added crushed fresh garlic and used thighs vs a whole bird. My husband and kids loved this recipe. There are nights when you want to cook an exquisite meal and then there are nights when you want something fast,easy & delicious. This is a keeper, Thanks, Liz

Easy and Good - very very good! I often do this in the crock pot, then shred the chicken and place it on a toasted burger bun or kaiser.

So simple, yet so good! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I omitted the sugar (totally not necessary), added 1/2 c. chili sauce, 1/2 c. red wine, and lots of fresh minced garlic. Also layered bottom of pan with sliced sweet peppers and onions. My daughter, an aspiring chef, demanded to know what was in the incredible sauce. When I told her, she didn't believe me. This is not barbeque sauce. It's just a plain, simple and good basic recipe. As with other reviewers, I will double the sauce next time.
