I made this dish last night w/o the use of the crock pot. Followed directins only using the stove top, simmered for 1.5 hours and then served. It was delicious and very easy to make.

Delicious. I bought three bags of steam fresh chinese veggies, tossed it all (w/ the sauce which I added a little more water making more of it) into a big bowl together. Also the thighs are so tender you can shred it w/ a fork. totally recommend.

This was delicious! My kids loved it (and we are not a big crock pot family). The sauce was a bit thin, but tasted great - I'm not sure I really needed to add the water with the cornstarch or maybe it needed extra cornstarch to thicken. The meat was very tender and flavorful! Super easy - will definitely add this to our weeknight dinner menu.

Excellent little recipe. I went ahead and made a couple of improvements: first, I doubled the recipe so we could enjoy this all week. I used double the amount of cornstarch the recipe calls for as I like a thicker sauce. Finally but most importantly, I pan-charred two cups of cut pineapple on the stovetop to add to the sauce. Delicious! Next time I might also try adding blackened jalepeno and red onion in place of the green onion.

This was very good and easy to make. Served with jasmine rice cooked in microwave.

Was browsing my recipe file looking to try something new and easy for chicken. Sooo glad I decided on this one. There was no chopping and all ingredients are staples in my cupboard. I used skinned chicken legs and a big can of pineapple chunks. I doubled the soy sauce and brown sugar then baked it at 350 for a little over an hour. The chicken was falling off the bone! I finished the sauce on top of the stove doubling the cornstarch.

Just made this for dinner tonight, and it was delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, with one exception. At the end I had to transfer the sauce to a small pan on the stove and bring it to a boil to thicken it. It wouldn't thicken in my crockpot, but did in no time on the stove. The sauce is so good and the thighs were tender. I like another reviewer's idea about adding pineapple chunks--will do that next time. I never worked with thighs before, and they were a lot of work to get all the fat off. Not sure if breasts would be as tasty, but might be worth a try. This is definitely a keeper.

So good! Followed recipe exactly, and it came out delicious. Super-tender and juicy chicken.

We loved this dish! It is a little work in the beginning, unlike other slow cooker recipes of just dumping everything in and letting her rip, but worth it. The only change I made was adding a dash of red pepper flakes. Next time I think I'll add a little sambal oelek before deglazing the pan. Looking forward to making it again soon. Oh, might try with breasts just to see the difference. Thighs are delicious but sometimes I don't have the extra 20 minutes to take the extra fat off of them. Wish they came a little cleaner!

I thought this was very good and easy. I cut the skin off the thighs but didn't bother deboning. I used an individual serving cup of fruit cocktail in place of the pineapple juice to make it a little more interesting. I also added a splash of white wine vinegar and a teaspoon of spicy chili sauce to give it more depth of flavor. Turned out very good! Served with jasmine rice.

Made this tonight and will put it into regular rotation. Didn't have chicken so used pork chops. Didn't have pineapple juice, used apple. Added a couple of shakes of cayenne pepper for some zip....totally good enough for company!
