Very good recipe, and very quick to make. I used chicken breasts instead, and pressure cooker rather than slow cooker (to save time). I'll make this one again!

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.

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.
