    We liked it okay. Next time, we want to make it with jasmine rice instead of brown rice.

    Mine looks nothing like the pictures. My crockpot was so soupy nothing stuck to chicken, disappointing.

    Really tasty, good flavor. As noted, the sauce is not thick. I added onions for additional flavor. I used thighs.

    This was very good. I think I’ll try it with chicken thighs, next.

    Yummy! I love easy chicken recipes! I actually did this on stove top so I could have it done faster. I coated the chicken with corn starch, sautéed then added the sauce. Still perfect!

    Very nice. I put it into the slow cooker after my nightshift with a bit of additional water to avoid dryness. Woke up to a melt-in-your-mouth chicken. The garlic isn't very prominent even tho i doubled the amount.

    Super easy to make! I added a little extra crushed red pepper and served with jasmine rice and a garnish of fresh diced green onion. Delicious!!!

    The sauce never really thickened at all. It stayed very loose and watery, still very very tasty. But definitely would have liked a thicker sauce. Still a good and easy recipe!

    Cut the basil either out or put less. More garlic. The sauce didn’t turn into the glaze, but still delicious! It also only took a couple hours to cook.

    really dry, pretty bland, next time I'll cut tenders in pieces and cut down the time. added garlic salt and seasoning salt, not too bad of a taste

    I suggest marinating your chicken for a few hours first as the chicken is a bit dry so next time I will be doing that. Other than that the dish turned out great!

    The chicken was really dry. Maybe cook it less?

    I did this in my Pressure Cooker XL and it was easy and fast. My chicken was fine (not dry as in other reviews). I put it under the broiler but I didn't find it made a difference. The kids approve and already want to know when I will make it again.

    It was fine but the ketchup was overpowering and I didn't taste honey or garlic. I'd try a different recipe.

    It wasn’t bad but we weren’t impressed

    The sauce wasn’t as thick as I thought it would be (or wanted it to be) in comparison to the picture. The garlic flavor didn’t really come through as much as I wanted to either, but it was still good over rice. If I make it again I will definitely add less ketchup.

    My spouse absolutely loved it with the Chinese Fried Rice. Next time I will double the honey🥰

    Excellent. Moist chicken, great flavour. We served with rice, it was great!

    I thought it turned out pretty good. I doubled the sauce and didn’t find that it was too runny. Put it over rice with mixed Vega. Hubby like it to and said he would eat it again.

    Had to add some flour to thicken the sauce

    Really flavorful. I think next time I will add just a little more garlic. I also added rice to the recipe so that I would have 6 premade lunches for the week!

    Great! Recipe was quick& easy. Took lid off slow cooker, turned heat to high, last half hour to thicken sauce. Might try flouring chicken next time.

    Great recipe! Turned out great. My chicken came out a lil dry but I had plenty sauce to Dan it in so it worked out fine. Flavor was on point but next time, I’ll season my chicken before putting it in the crockpot.

    My husband and son loved this with rice on the side. It was so easy to make and I’m no cook so that says a lot!

    Not very flavorful even with adding teriyaki sauce. Won't make again. 😞

    Honey and soy combined with sesame toasted under the grill on baking chicken is an excellent recipe for keeping slim.
