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
