My boyfriend and I made this for dinner tonight – it was great! The only complaint is the chicken was a bit dry. Next time, we’ll decrease the time in the slow cooker 🙂

I am not a fan of chicken breast. Can I use the thigh instead? If so, how many do I use?

Love the flavors of this. However, I use the LOW setting on my crock and if I were to use the HIGH setting, it would taste like leather. I must have a crock that gets very hot. I usually only make 3 breasts.

I made this last night. I already knew my crock pot cooks pretty hot so put chicken in for 2 1/4 hours. Was perfect NOT dry at all. I also cut chicken up in bite size pieces and then added other ingredients for the last 45 minutes. Over rice and a side of broccoli it was GREAT!!

I’ve made this several times now and my family really likes it. I add carrots, onions, green bell peppers, and pineapple for more of a Chinese chicken. I’m still playing with the cook time, but it usually turns out just fine and couldn’t be easier. A new go to recipe for me.

I made this the other night but started late so ended up being pushed for time and cooked it in the slow cooker on high for only about an hour then threw it in a pan and seared it for about 5 minutes, after that covered it the sauce and served it on rice. It came out very moist and I am very satisfied with this new recipe.

This sounds great! Only problem is that my husband prefers hot sauce over bbq sauce. I wonder how it would taste with sriracha instead of bbq. (Probably have to use a smaller amount?).

can I use the same amount of ingredients but only do like 2 pieces of chicken or would I need to try to cut the other ingredients in half
