Hi Jenn! Your recipe looks amazing!! I cannot wait to try it this week! However I am not sure where the cutting up of the chicken is??? Can you explain?? It seems like you put the chicken in in whole pieces but that part is a little confusing?? Thank you!! xoxo!

Not impressed.

First of all, the picture above is highly misleading and the dish definitely does not look like that. Plus, the taste is much more harsh than takeout

I followed this to the letter, and it really didn’t turn out worth the effort. Won’t be making this again.

The picture does look like the item is fried… that part is rather confusing as well. =/

I agree with the picture being misleading – mine looked nothing like it. I did the cornstarch but it didn’t make a glaze like the picture, more of a sauce even with more cornstarch added. Granted it was pretty tasty no matter what it looked it.

I tried this recipe tonight. However, it wasn’t until far too late that I discovered I was out of soy sauce and kechup! So I substituted 3/4 cup teryaki (thin marinade, not the thick sauce). I also poured the liquid into a pot at the end to add the corn starch over higher heat before pouring it all back into the crock. This came out SO good! The family has demanded I make it again!

Is that supposed to be fresh ginger or powered ginger?

I thought it tasted pretty good, but it most definitely did NOT look anything like the picture! The cornstarch thickened the sauce, but that was it. I’ve seen a similar recipe floating around on FB and it too, contained a very misleading picture. If the picture you show is one you took of your actual dish, can you please tell the rest of us how you got it glazed & fried looking in just the crock pot? If the picture is not of your actual dish, please change it so it isn’t misleading. The flavor is there, but it’s not… Read more »

Mine did not look like the picture either, but it was yunmy! Thumbs up from the husband too. Definitely will make it again. I had 3 good sized chicken breasts, so i halved all of the ingredients. I did not use the sesame seeds. The ginger definitely gives it a little kick. The sauce does not thicken very much with the amount of corn starch, Didn’t have time to experimen, but we ate it over rice so the sauce sunk in nice. Always finding great recipies on here!

I’ve been dying to make this recipe. The picture just looks amazing. Little did I know that what I would get was black chicken with a sweet soy sauce at the end. Yikes. I’m bad in the kitchen, but this just looks bad! Taste, eh, not something worth waiting all day for. Darn.

I cooked this recipe on the stove. I knew I couldn’t leave it in the croc pot all day, so when I came home I cooked it on the stove instead. It didn’t take much time, and it was absolutely delish. I will make again

@ kate…maybe yours looked different you used breasts not thighs. That will give it a different look and different taste. It all depends what you prefer!
