Reviews for Soy-Garlic Chicken
"This was great! I would not change a thing. An easy make ahead meal."
"I thought this had a good flavor. I had to cook the chicken 6hours for them to be done although may have been because they were rather large. I thickened the sauce using a little cornstarch and cold water and served with rice. Unfortunately, hubby did not like this so I will not make again since it is just the two of us."
"Followed the recipe exactly and my husband said it was good. Will make again."
"Increadibly tasty, tender, and juicy!"
"This recipe has such a great taste to it and chicken is very tender! I do like to thicken the gravy a bit first with cornstarch and water before serving."
"I make this recipe quite often. I use boneless chicken thighs instead of legs and it only takes a couple of hours to cook. Really yummy."
"I have made this recipe several times, and my family loves it! The chicken is so tender and quite flavorful. I typically use boneless, skinless thighs when I make it."
"I used Bragg's Amino Acid instead of soy sauce, it is not nearly as high in sodium and is certified non GMO."
"We thought this was just TERRIBLE. No flavor whatsoever. I took the sauce, added corn starch, tomato paste, fresh winter savory and thyme, and garlic powder, and cooked it down to a gravy, which my husband said saved the recipe. Will NOT make again. Yuck."
"Tasty sauce but it was a bit on the salty side - not surprising with so much soy sauce... I simmered chicken tenders in the sauce for a while rather than cooking the dish in the crock pot. The kids loved it!"
