From the "Fix it and Forget It" cookbook of crockpot recipes. Turns out with little effort. We enjoy it served over rice, with a salad on the side. I also use jarred ground ginger and jarred minced garlic--comes out just as well. I often double the sauce ingredients that go on top of the chicken--if you like it with more sauce, I suggest you do this. I also use low-sodium soy sauce, otherwise it will be really salty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and dry chicken. Place in slow cooker.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients. Pour over chicken.
  3. Cover. Cook on high 1 hours Reduce heat to low, cook 6-7 hours. (Again, I wanted to start this in the morning and have it for dinner that evening, so I cooked it only on low for about 9 hrs and it turned out perfectly--fall off the bone tender. I think you can adjust times as you see fit.).

I thought this was very good. I used frozen chicken breasts and cut them up into bite-sized pieces and then put them in the crock pot, doubled the sauce, and cooked on low about three or four hours. I served over rice and thought it was very good. I used some cornstarch to thicken the sauce at the end.

This was okay. I used dark and white meat and cooked as directed. I have to say that the white meat wasn't very good, so ONLY USE DARK MEAT for this recipe. The breasts actually got a bit hard after cooling.

Husband tasted/tested and approved! Tasty and easy to throw together. I only had regular soy sauce, so I diluted it with some pineapple juice and water to cut down the saltiness (about 1.5 to 2 cups liquid altogether). I also doubled the brown sugar and used 1 T of ground ginger rather than fresh ginger. Cooked it on HIGH for 5 hours, and the chicken was tender and juicy. Served it over plain Basmati rice to sop up all the sauce.
