    Omg soooo good! i highly recommended chopping up chicken and marinating in sauce for atleast 30 min. Then put in slow cooker for 3 hours instead of 4 hours. Then pour inside a baking pan, add 1 1/2 tbsp of corn starch to thicken the sauce, then broil for 5 to 6 minutes. it tastes AMAZING.

    I loved the recipe it was real simple and quick to make for dinner and healthy

    Quick and easy to prepare and very tasty. I always cut back on the soy sauce amounts in recipes and so I used 1/4 cup instead of 1/3. I love food with a spicy kick so also doubled the red chili flakes. Mine took right about 3 hours in the crockpot. This recipe is a keeper.

    Wish I looked at the reviews first and added some cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Also, seems like I could've cooked the chicken for about a half hour less. otherwise, easy to make. Threw on top of some rice and made for great leftovers.

    Three stars for the recipe as written, but it's easy to jazz up. I have made it three weeks in a row because my boyfriend and I enjoy it so much. Use chicken thighs instead of breast, add ground ginger, and (after removing the cooked chicken from the slow cooker) add some cornstarch to thicken the sauce. This solves the two major complaints I see about this recipe: dry chicken and watery sauce.

    Followed the recipe with the exception of basil and I’m sad. Not sure why there is a concern about drying out because mine was so watery! There was no sticky sauce like I expected and hardly any color to the chicken. Nothing at all like the photo.

    Meat was really good. The sauce was even better!

    So yummy! I added a dash of red pepper flakes for a bit of zip...but this will definitely be on the "will make again" list!

    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.
    Yummly User 6 months ago
    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?

    Good, I added broccoli and put it on top of rice

    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
    Yummly User a year ago
    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!
