    It turned out well but I removed my chicken around 3- 3 1/2 hours. I find that I will probably cut the chicken up after I remove it the crock pot before putting it in the pan to more evenly bite. Also I strained the sauce from the crock pot through a cheese cloth before putting it pan. Much smoother sauce that way.

    Just didn't love the flavor. Probably could have used some kick/spiciness.

    We made this in an electric pressure cooker. It turned out very good! It may need a bit more brown sugar to balance with the spiciness. Overall, 4 out of 5 stars! Good flavor. Yumm!

    I followed the recipe and the chicken was overcooked and dry :-( the sauce wouldn't thicken up either, I even doubled the cornstarch. The taste was good but don't follow the recipe exactly. Watch your chicken lol

    Really tasty dish. Used boneless pork chops instead of chicken and it was delicious. I also did not use the red pepper flakes in the sauce and it was very tasty, everyone loved the sauce. Will make this one again by trying it with chicken.

    My girlfriend said she ate too much because it was so good. I kept to the recipe. If you want it spicier than I would add a teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Pretty simple and delicious!

    OMG! So good and flavorful! Only took 3 1/2 hours in my crockpot I took chicken out and made sauce then added chicken back- the sauce is the bomb!

    Delicious! The sauce was the perfect blend of sweet and heat. I used b/s chicken thighs. Definitely will be putting this into my regular rotation.

    Mine turned out very spicy so if you don't like spicy food leave out the red pepper. Otherwise very good!

    Was ok. The vinegar tends to wear on you after awhile. Wife thought it was ok as well. maybe we just got tired of smelling it all day in the crock pot.

    I really liked it. My husband said it was okay (which is very good for him). Maybe less brown sugar next time AND SERVE IT WITH RICE... it has a very "Chinese restaurant" kind of feel. I'll keep it in my rotation!

    Turned out awesome. Surprised at the amount of garlic but it wasn't over powering at all. I would definitely make this again
