I had a 5# whole chicken that I skinned and cut up for this so had to tinker with the ingredient proportions. I used balsamic vinegar for some sweetness and as other reviewers suggested, peppercorns, brown sugar, and cut back on the soy sauce. I added a couple of green peppers and a heaping teaspoon of thai red curry paste just for some zing, as well as 2 bay leaves. I have to say that when I mixed up the ingredients I was not impressed with the taste, but after it finished in the crockpot and sat there for a few hours, I really like the flavor. I also like the fact that the ingredients are cheap, those that I keep on hand, and fat-free; no heavy oils. The chicken was incredibly moist even the breasts (and I had deskinned the whole chicken) Will keep this in my box to make when I don't feel like fussing but want a hearty tasting chicken.
