    Really easy and delicious. My whole family enjoyed it.

    Love this recipe. Lots of flavor and so easy to make. It looks like you slaved over dinner but you just threw everything in the crock pot and made the rice. Because I don't care for green bell peppers, I use 2 red ones. I also omit the ginger and substitute Splenda for the sugar. Hard to beat this one!

    Way too overcooked and I didn't care for the texture of the chicken cooked this way. Recommend browning the meat. My crockpot doesn't have a vent so the sauce turned out too watery. The ingredients have good potential though, I think I'll try a quick cooking stove top version instead.

    This is one meal I get all the time when I go out for Chinese food I absolutely love this dish

    No changes to the recipe necessary - this has absolutely amazing flavor as-is And it's so amazing to come home and have dinner waiting. A+!

    Very good and easy to make. I used 1 1/2 lbs skinless boneless chicken breasts instead of the 1 lb chicken thighs. Agree with previous reviewer this is worthy for special occasions or even a potluck.

    I was so horrified by the texture of the chicken - what I imagine the texture of canned dog food to be. My husband and I both gagged on our first bites. We ate rice for dinner. I followed the recipe EXACTLY so it is not the cook's fault. My husband suggested next time I prep all my ingredients in advance and instead of cooking in the slow cooker, just sauté everything when I get home.

    Loved the flavors. This was a great hit with the family. I liked how juicy it was after four hours of cooking. Will make again

    I made this tonight using Quorn naked chicken cutlets instead of chicken because I am vegetarian. It was amazing! The sauce is sweet and tangy. Definitely hits the spot for take out without all the guilt and fat! Easily the best cooking light recipe I've tried. Go for it!

    I used pork tenderloin, browned the pork before adding the rest of the ingredients. As one reviewer did, I cooked it in a dutch oven at 325, but only for an hour. It was very good and my family loved it. Very easy. I will definitely make it again.

    I have made the recipe as directed in the crockpot and loved it, but tonight I was short on time (and chicken thighs) so I substituted lean boneless pork chops, cubed, and cooked the recipe in my cast iron dutch oven in a 325 stove for 1.5 hours. It turned out just as nicely, if not better, as the crockpot method...the sauce really thickened up perfectly and the pork is perfectly tender and moist.

    I really liked this recipe but am giving it 3 stars instead of 4 because I had to make a lot of changes. It's a good solid weekday crock pot recipe that doesn't require a lot of prep. Here are the changes I made. 2 tbs sugar + 1 tbs splenda 1 can pineapple chunks 1.5 pounds chicken thighs a little extra soy & cider vinegar, also added a tbs or 2 of sweet chili sauce

    It's an easy meal to throw together for the weeknight. It's not one of the better meals I've made, but everyone enjoyed having homemade Asian food sans the high sodium of take-out.

    Really good recipe. I browned the chicken first. It's a perfect family pleaser; my toddler and hubby gobbled it up.This is so easy to cut up the night before and leave in the slow cooker while at work. I'll make it again for sure.

    4 1/2 stars. Really good. I also browned the chicken first. Was probably done in less than 4 hours on high. Also think a dutch oven might be a good idea, but really good anyway. Used Splenda and ground ginger.
