How much chick­en did you use?


Can You use bone in chick­en for this recipe? If so how much more time would it take?

Hi, I’m going to make this tomor­row using chick­en ten­ders!

It smells amaz­ing. Should I take the lid off and stir these ten­ders?? Also, will the ten­ders cook quick­er that a whole chick­en breast? Thanks.


The pic­ture looks like you browned it. Can it be placed under the broil­er to get the sauce to cara­mal­ize on the chick­en?


Just made this. Was real­ly great. I loved pour­ing the extra sauce over the rice. Very yum­my!


Hmm­mm, quite dis­ap­point­ed with this recipe. The fla­vors were good, but the chick­en was WAY over­done after 4hrs (good thing I didn’t wait 6–8hrs like the recipe calls for). I know part of that is know­ing if your crock pot cooks hot­ter or cool­er. Still, if I did make this again, I prob­a­bly would not use the crockpot…I’d just cook the chick­en on the stove­top and use the sauce like a glaze.


Thank you! So easy and tasty. We loved it!

Hi! I’m new to crock-pot­ting, and have a novice ques­tion: does it mat­ter if I use frozen chick­en breasts ver­sus already thawed chick­en breasts in the recipes?
Thank you!

Bet this would be good with pork chops too. I have lots in the freez­er so I think I will try it tonight !
