We loved this! It is going to be made often here!
We liked this, a very nice subtle flavor. The sauce was (as another reviewer said) just the right consistency, and frankly I was amazed that it thickened up so nicely - I've never made a sauce like that in the crock pot. I also added in some chicken thighs. ETA: I just pulled the leftovers from the freezer and reheated them last night. Delicious! No special prep before freezing, I just dumped into freezer safe containers. Then I defrosted in my fridge. I reheated on low for about 3 minutes, high for one minute, drained off the sauce and chunks, and finished heating the chicken on high for 2 minutes. Perfect over some fresh white rice!
The chicken was very tender but I thought it needed some more flavor. It was a quick and easy dish to make and smelled great.
