i doubled the garlic like the commenter above. glad i did, really flavorful and delicious. i served over sticky white rice with broccoli. i steamed the broccoli florets in my pressure cooker for 1 minute - worked like a charm.

I love slow cooker recipes. I shredded the chicken and ate it over pasta. YUM

I liked this one a lot. I doubled more garlic because I like my food garlicky. This recipe is an easy set it and forget it recipe. I have made it both in the pressure cooker and in the slow cooker and the results have turned out remarkably similar. My slow cooker doesn't have a keep warm feature, so I simmered it on the low setting instead after I added the starch slurry.

Honey ginger chicken that actually uses real honey! Next time I want to try frying the chicken and using the sauce on top as a glaze. Very good recipe.

I've made this recipe in both my slow cooker and pressure cooker, and I must say, both turn out amazing. I always add a little extra ginger, for flavor. Delicious!

I don’t know where I went wrong. The chicken was overcooked and dry. My gut feeling to not cook it for four hours on high proved correct. I think two hours would be ample if your slow cooker is particularly hot. The flavours are there. But my chicken ended up resembling rubber.
