Mark, is it terrible to stand over the crockpot sopping up the last dregs of sauce with a piece of French Bread? If so, I am beyond reform. I do think the 8-hour cooking time may be a little long for some crockpots -- mine was done when I checked it after 4 hours. I love the heat, but I used half cayenne pepper and half Chinese Five Spice to cut down on the heat factor for the more timid tastebuds in our family. Thanks for sharing!

My husband and I thought this was a great tasting dish! The only problem was that the chicken was really overcooked after 6 hours of cooking. It was done before we were quite ready for it. I would recommend cooking it for 4 hours instead of 8. Also, I will add more spice to it next time. (We love anything hot and spicy!!) I will definitely make this one again.

I made this today for dinner and the smell alone couldn't keep me out of the crockpot! My mother-in-law loved it as well and she is quite picky! This dish reminds me of the chinese dish General So... I served it over rice noodles...I will for sure make this again and again! Thanks for sharing such a delicious dish!

Very salty even with the low sodium soy sauce. May be better by eliminating salt or reducing soy (or both).

Very good, simple recipe here, that gives the impression you spent half your day in the kitchen. I did take the advice of other reviewers and cut the cooking time down to about 4 hours. I served this over Asian noodles, and we both just love it. I will definatley make this dish again.
