    I don't really like pork so this recipe stood out and I can say I love love love it! Nom nom nom. I would recommend getting a more crunchier bun because even when you try to drain it it will get the bun soggy if it's a soft bun.

    I have made this several times. It is so tender and delicious! And it feeds a lot of people. I serve with Hawaiian rolls.

    Excellent! I used both thighs and breasts. Served it on a brioche bun and topped it with blue cheese dressing. Easy and so yummy! Loved the flavor!

    Definitely use a dark meat instead of chicken breasts. It was very good! It has just a tiny kick of heat to it but its not spicy. (I always wish people would include spiciness descriptions in their reviews)

    Very delicious! I changed the serving size to 4 as I only had 1 lb. of lean chicken breasts. Cooked on LOW for 3 1/2 hours and turned out PERFECT. Added about 1/4 cup extra water at the start as well. The amount of sauce/moisture was just right!
