This recipe came out great! I used about a dozen boneless chicken tenders. I also substituted 2 small cans of V8 juice for the tomato sauce based on another recipe I had seen. I added some ground ginger, black pepper, a dash of onion powder and a dash of Emeril's Essence. After 5 hours of cooking I drizzled some honey over the top and cooked another hour. I did add the cornstarch/water mixture at the end to thicken the sauce. I had gotten some dry results recently with chicken in the crock pot so I poked fork holes into the tenders when I put them in and they really absorbed the sauce all the way through and were very moist. I made white rice and when I served it, I shredded the chicken (which was easy since it was practically falling apart from cooking) and mixed the chicken, sauce and rice together and it was excellent!! My 2 kids-8 and 4-loved this also! Next time I may add some broccoli or even pineapple!

Very tasty! Lots of points for simplicity! Better with low sodium soy sauce. This time I followed it exactly, but, as others suggested, I see more garlic & ginger in my future....maybe even some red pepper flakes for ZING! Thank you for the post!

Made two crock pots full of thighs...served with white rice and steamed broccoli -extended family liked it, toddlers like it! Nice change of pace. Took reviewers advice- added extra garlic and ginger- then thickened sauce at the end with cornstarch. Hubby says make it again! :)
