    Made x2 cooking the breading with prescribed amount of oil and tempture and with with twice as much oil and temperature and have not got good results with the breading. Besides that very tasty and delicious.

    So easy and SUPER delicious! My husband and teenage son request this often. Pair it with some rice and dinner is done!

    Great recipe, but I didn't crock pot by the 5th time. I just did it on the stove top.

    This recipe was great! Will make it again for sure. Placed the chicken over a bed of fried rice with a side of stir fried vegetables and pan fried okra.

    I loved it. High flavour and an interesting balance of sweet and sour. Toasted the sesame seeds which finished it off beautifully. Delicious.

    Didn’t like this recipe. Sauce was way too overpowering.

    Way too sweet. Tasted more like spicy BBQ than Asian food. Next time, I’d cut the brown sugar down by at least half.

    This will be one of my go to dishes, I used red wine vinegar in stead of the rice wine vinegar, 😋this dish was amazing ❤️

    Was a great recipe. I like mine hotter than my husband does and adding additional peppers at the end makes it great for all tastes. Great flavor.

    This was nothing like General Chicken. It was good, but way too sweet. Tasted like BBQ sauce with soy and sugar.

    This recipe turned out so delicious! I also added broccoli for the last hour of cooking. It is now in my rotation of recipes my family loved it

    Delicious! I altered it due to what I had on hand. When I smelled the sauce ingredients together, oh wow! I didn't have sesame seeds nor green onions. I had thighs with skin, and I left the pieces pretty large, fried them up, and then did the sauce. Great stuff, and I may try this with beef or pork!

    Great taste! Used erythritol. Stir fried it instead of slow cook and the meat was still tender and flavor still good!

    AWESOME!! We decreased the sugar so that it was a scant 1/3c. Used low-sodium soya sauce as well. The best part, though, was having chopped raw ginger. 1 Tbsp raw = 1/4 pad. The additional fresh kick gave this a real bite!!! SO MUCH SAUCE! A definite redo!! I don’t think we will ever buy pre-made sauce again!
