This was fantastic. I made it with just chicken thighs as that is what I had, and it was wonderful. The sauce is perfect for drizzling over rice and vegetables served on the side. Everyone, including the kids, really enjoyed this one.

This sounds really good...wondering if it can be done in slow cooker?

We really enjoyed this. I used chicken breasts and added more garlic. I believe you can never have too much garlic. The chicken was juicy and flavorful. Loved the Asian flavors. I served it with some rice and broccoli. It was a very easy week day meal!

I marinated cut up chicken breasts about two hours prior to cooking. Some changes:1.Double the sauce recipe, only using half to marinate. Refrigerate the rest for later.2.Cook chicken in slow cooker on low for 2-3 hours, then switch to warm.3.To thicken the sauce, mix 1/3 cup cold water with 1 tablespoon corn starch. Add to a small sauce pan and stir over medium heat until thickened. Add the contents from the slow cooker and keep warm until served.4.Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds prior to serving.Overall, very tasty and will make again. Thanks to all the previous reviewers who helped me make these changes.

Thought it was perfect just the way it was. We served it over rice.

I made this today! I used boneless chicken breasts and doubled the sauce, served it over rice and had Asian veggies on the side. The chicken was super tasty!The sauce is very good, but after cooking all day it smells far more flavorful than it tastes. I think I'd make a batch of the sauce to use to cook the rice next time to give it more flavor to match the chicken. Or maybe cube the chicken and add some veggies to start. Hrmm the ideas are flowing, that is a good sign :)
