Really, really good! I love that it's made in a crock pot as I make a lot of stir fry for my immediate family and would love to make it for company but don't want to be throwing it all together while guests are around. This is an awesome recipe and really easy to make in advance. My husband and kids loved it and asked for seconds. It was a bit spicy though ( I was surprised the kids 3 & 5 didn't complain about the spice) and will add less chili sauce next time. Also, I oven "fried" the chicken (dust chicken pieces in cornstarch and bake 15 mins at 375 on a foil lined baking sheet) instead of frying in oil. I too found the sauce to liquidity so I added about 1 tbsp cornstarch (stir into cold water then add to the crockpot) and it thickened up really nicely! Great recipe- I can't wait to make it again!
