I made this tonight… the flavor is very good. However, my chicken was very dry. I used large breasts, so I cut each breast into about 6 pieces, which seemed similar in size to the photo. I cooked them on low for 8 hours. The chicken was very browned when I took it out (from the soy sauce) where it had been sitting on the bottom on the crock pot. I’m new at crock pot cooking, so would love some advice on how not to dry out my chicken!

I cooked mine on low for 4 hours, and the result resembles something undesirable. we tossed it and ate getting take out. I really had high hopes for this.

I’m curious if that is an actual true result photo of the crock pot meal.

I read Stefani’s post and she stated that she cooked it on low for 4 hours. She didn’t cook it long enough. I want to try this with thighs; will they work?

i am unable to use cornstarch due to corn allergy. Is there a substitute I could use instead?

I was wondering where all the calories came from? Chicken breast, honey and veggies don’t have that many calories…even with the brown rice that seems like a lot. I’m seriously watching my calorie intake, but this sounds SUPER yummy, may have to see if I can alter it just a bit…

I don’t care for fresh ginger. What would the equivalent be in powdered ginger. Thanks so much Jean. I love your recipes and have tried many of them.

We really liked it. I left out the oil, used green beans instead of peas, and added a bit of Thai chili sauce while making the sauce. Thanks for the idea!!
