This is a very easy and quick meal to throw together in the slow cooker. I found it a little too sweet, but my husband thought it was wonderful. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce because it's what I had, but would imagine you could control the sweetness by using a different kind of BBQ sauce. I served it over rice and would make it again.

tasted too tomato-ey to me. I decided to take pineapple juice from can of pineapple in it's own juice, with about a TBS of cornstarch and a TBS of brown sugar and make a slightly thick sauce in a sauce pan and adding to it. Family loved it. I think I might try this recipe again, with slight variation to ingredients.

Needless to say this was one of the most delicious meals I've had involving chicken. Having never used a slow cooker before, the preparation was quick and painless. For those who want more bang and less meat, I would suggest adjusting this recipe to include two of each bell peppers, and decrease the amount of sauces to 3 quarters, as there was just too much chicken, and was a little too spicy for our typical Western tastes.

This was OK. I didn't have chili sauce so I didn't put it in. I would think that by using a BBQ sauce that you liked you could make it as sweet or as spicy as you want.

Waaaaaay too sweet. Overwhelmingly so.

Very tasty- however it was a bit too sweet. My husband thought it was somewhat watery. Will try again!

Too much of a barbecue taste for me. I was looking for something a little more sweet & sour not tangy bbq.

Just tried this tonight...after reading reviews decided to use Stubbs original bbq sauce, and it didn't end up too sweet. The chili sauce gave it too much heat though, and In my families' opinion took away from the other flavors. Next time I will try removing chili sauce, maybe replace with a little ketchup and a dash of soy sauce, which may make the sauce thicker. Overall, quick, easy reciepe, (great with brown rice) will definitely try again.
