MY REVIEW

I'm glad I found this recipe!! I was about to prepare a typical soy sauce based asian thigh recipe but was out of soy sauce. In a quick search I found this and had all the called for ingredients. The only addition my family made was some added Chinese hot sauce to their's to kick up the heat. Great dish.

Loved it. Made 1/3 in small crock and it worked great. Not sure where the complaint with salt was because it was definitely not salty.

My husband and I cut this down to only making a 1/3 of this recipe which worked out really nice for the two of us and fit in our 1.5 quart slow cooker. This recipe goes really well with fried whole grain brown rice.
