    AudreyBG's Note:

    I love this recipe and could eat it at least once a week! I think it tastes very close to the brown sauce that is served in Chinese restaurants. I have made it with and without the veggies with great success.

      I thought this was very good. I doubled the sauce but doubling the corn starch wasn't enough to thicken the sauce so next time, I'll increase that too. I think some fresh ginger would make it taste more like the restaurant.

      Very tasty. I slightly browned the chicken in a pan first (not cooked all the way through), cut it up into strips and put it in the crock pot with the sauce. (I did double the amount of sauce as it just didn't seem like enough). The chicken was very moist and the hour in the crock pot allowed the sauce to really "soak in". Served with white rice and broccoli. I'd like to try the sauce with beef sometime as well.

      This was good and easy to make, although I had to add more cornstarch to thicken a bit more. My daughter (4 years) ate her plate up fairly quickly.
