I have made this quite a few times over the past year. I have made just a few minor adjustments. 1) I use 2lbs of chicken breast 2) to deal with the dryness -> I cook the meal for about 5-6 hours on low rather than high. The chicken is cooked through, but it isn't dry. 3) To give it a little more flavor -> I add at least 3 garlic cloves, although usually 5 or 6 b/c my family really loves garlic. 4) To decrease the salt -> I use 1/3 c low salt soy sauce to avoid the really salty flavor. It wasn't too salty for me, but my husband said the first time I made it that it was too salty. 5) To thicken some sauce -> I take most of the sauce out of the crock pot and put it in a skillet. I add about 1-2 teaspoons (slowly) of corn starch to thicken the sauce. This has really made the difference in my opinion. We take the sauce and put it over the chicken and rice. With all of these additions, this recipe's really good.

This was a disaster. It looked very nice but the overall taste was unimpressive. I found the chicken was not "falling off the done" after 7 hrs of cooking. All measurements and ingredients were used according to the recipe. To make it worse this smelled repulsive the next morning!

((((in an Emeril accent)))) "Oh yeah, babe!" (((((end of Emeril accent))))) This one if fanstinkintastic! Talk about healthy. Talk about easy? Talk about absolutely delicious. This recipe is the ticket. I've been getting into slow cooker recipes ... having purchased a huge new slow cooker recently. Since I love chicken, I was on the hunt for a recipe that would provide an interesting spin on chicken. This recipe did the trick. You just can't go wrong with this one. Do note; I suspect slow cooker cooking times vary significantly. I've noticed that my new large slow cooker seems to often cook recipes in half the time as what the recipe calls for, including this one. Be warned. Thankfully, I checked the chicken after two hours and it was DONE, and I cooked it on LOW. The sauce makes this recipe so awesome ... it almost has a sweet and sour aura about it. Have it tonight!

I actually cooked the chicken in the oven instead of the crock pot and it was beyond delicious. I cooked it covered for about one hour and then brushed some honey on top and cooked uncovered for about 20 minutes or until the chicken was a nice orange/brown color. My guests wouldn't leave without the recipe. Definitely a keeper!

I followed many suggestions found in the reviews to make this dish. I first reduced the cooking time in half because I was using chicken breasts and not a whole chicken. I also used 1/3 cup of soy sauce an 2/3 cup of honey in order to make sure the sauce was not too salty since I didn't have low sodium soya sauce on hand. I thickened the sauce after in a small sauce pan and served over rice. Of all the slow cooker chicken I have had so far... This one was the tastiest!

This chicken was so good! I used skinless boneless chicken breasts so i decreased the cook time, so the chicken didn't dry out! I also added fresh ginger and garlic to the crock pot! When the chicken was done I ladeled some of the sauce into a sauce pan on the stone and reduced it down! I also made egg fried rice with day old cooked rice and peas and green onions and we also added the reduced sauce on top of the rice. My kids (3 and 5) and my hubby loved it! Would definetly make this again!

Delicious! I followed the recipe closely except I used less honey and I used a whole chicken as is. I put a crushed garlic clove inside the chicked along with some green onions. It came out delicious. I think I could have used all the honey and it would still have been fine. I added some sliced potatoes to the crock pot and they absorbed the juices and tasted delicious. I did not thicken the juice since we liked it just the way it was. We poured it over the chicken on our plates to soak it up which made the chicken so juicy. I will make this again.

Loved this recipe. Read the warnings about too much salt, so I added extra wine (total almost 1 cup) to the recipe in addition to a couple tablespoons of O.J. The chicken was fantastic!
