We’re not being dramatic with the name the chicken quite literally falls off the bone. It’s not the prettiest bird we’ve ever made, but it’s one of the best.

    Made this last night, definitely “Fall Off the Bone Chicken;” however, found it pretty bland. I will make this again because the chicken is done perfectly, but will add additional or more seasonings.

    Delicious and definitely fall of the bone. I did take the advice of others and added my own additional spices of sazon on the chicken before i put the mixture of the chili powder and brown sugar…. It came out amazing . Definitely will be making again

    Delicious! I marinated my chicken and then seasoned it before searing. Seared it, then added the other Recommended ingredients To finish.

    Even though I followed the instructions exactly the chicken was sort of dry. Won’t be making this again.

    I thought this one was quite good. I made a lot more of the dry spices than called for and really covered the chicken; then put the extra in on top before sealing the pot.
    Used chicken pieces instead of a whole chicken; because it happened to be cheaper.
    I will definitely do this one again.

    I followed the directions and it was Raw. I finished carving and had to put in the oven. Made a mess without the payoff

    I would recomend cutting up the chicken to evening distribute the cooking. Also, add additional seasoning to tase. The key is making sure its seared an all sides. That will redue your cooking time. Do not add liquid because of the pressure and natural juices of the meat. Otherwise it would be like boiling the chicken.

    Hope, this helps!

    It wasn’t my favorite. I think air frying wouldve made it better. The flavor was all on the outside and not really in the meat itself. It was basically a boiled chicken.

    We’ve made this one a week for the last 2 weeks and has turned out great. The only thing we changed up was instead of rubbing the “rub” on the skin, since it’s trashed anyhow is pull up the skin and directly season the chicken as best as we could. This is really a decent recipe. Haven’t had any issues from some of the comments seen for this recipe.

    mine turned out great,,definitely, pull the skin back as far as you can, put wll your spices around there. rub it in good, spice again, take the skin and put it back on. salt and pepper the whole bird, spice the whole bird wherever you see the white part. oh forgive me.. before all this spicing going on, slather the bird with butter, not margarine. and slather it good. all those white parts, then spice the heck out of it. if yo udon’t have fresh spices dried canned are a good substitute. if you do misbehave, by all means, spice and crisp that skin and don’t let anyone ,know you ate it.. For spices.. suggestion only.. fresh is best, but dried is good. Garlic, chili powder thyme parsley, terragon, and whatever you like and what YOU would like to experiment with. while addin liquid, substituted a can of your favorite beer.
