    Does this have a vinegar-smell or taste to the finish? Husband hates the smell of vinegar.

    I made this in the pressure cooker with bone-in leg quarters. Turned out delicious!

    Hi! Thus looks delicious , but I’m thinking the nutrition doesn’t match the recipe? There’s really no ingredient that has many carbs.

    I made this yesterday In my slow cooker. It came out very good. It had lots of flavor. I used boneless, skinless chicken thigh and I used apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar. I will definitely made it again.

    I made this tonight- first recipe since purchasing access last night!! I wasn’t sure, because my hubby is not a fan of anything overly vinegary.
    We all three LOVED it. My 6 yr old son gave it two thumbs up and went for four helpings (small portions each time!) and declared that it was a make again recipe!
    I made it exactly as directed, except for I didn’t prep it and freeze it first. Found the recipe at 4:30 after work and by 6:00 dinner was on the table (from frozen chicken) using the instant pot.
    Thank you for making dinner time easier!!


    How long to cook in Instant Pot if not frozen?
