I created this dish that combines two of my favorite tastes, salty and sweet. I'm always looking for new ideas for my slow cooker and this one's a keeper! — Amy Siegel, Clifton, New Jersey

"Wonderful! Just wish they'd included nutritional info so I could adjust my diet/eating accordingly."

"This is way too sweet for me. As for my husband, he made no comment. So I don't think I would use this recipe again."

"I threw everything in over my 30 min. lunch break so I skipped browning the thighs. I substituted the 1/2 cup syrup for 1/2 cup honey. I also used Wondra flour instead of cornstarch to avoid the "gloopy" gravy texture.

It had A LOT of flavor. I'll probably serve this over rice or noodles next time."

"Really easy, with ingredients I usually have in my kitchen. It was a bit salty for our taste, but I think a low sodium teryaki sauce would do the trick."

"I was in a hurry, so I browned the chicken breasts, cut them in bite size pieces and then cooked it all on the stove top in the Dutch oven in about 20 minutes. It was fabulous!"
