    Have to try this one .

  • Monica

    I’m looking forward to making this tomorrow night! I have everything but the rice wine vinegar :/
    Do you think I’d be ok without it??

    Thanks for the recipe!!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Try another kind of vinegar if you have it!

  • Kristen

    I was wondering if the sauce is supposed to be thicker or not.

    • Rachel Schultz

      Mine was on the thin side.

  • chrisd

    Thank you for the print option. It is really helpful. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Glad to hear it! You’re welcome.

  • Leah

    Looking forward to trying this this weekend! Does anyone have any comments about the difference in outcomes if you brown the chicken first or not? Also, I want to add broccoli to it…when would you recommend that gets added?

    • Rachel Schultz

      Near the end of the crockpot’s cook-time!

      • Leah

        Thanks Rachel! I’m excited to make it this weekend. I’m having 7 people for dinner…I’m thinking to up it to 6 breasts and doubling the sauce? Wondering if cooking time will change…I also worry that they won’t all fit flat at the bottom of the crockpot and some will overlap, will that be an issue?

        • Rachel Schultz

          I think those are good size modifications. I would suspect the cook time would be close to the same, but I’d give yourself some breathing room, just in case. I don’t think the overlapping will be a problem!

  • Sandra

    Rachel.
    Can the chicken be cut into cubes before cooking in the slow cooker?
    Thanks for the great recipes.

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yes. And you’re welcome!

  • Sue

    Do you think I can do this without the frying in a skillet part? I want to make it as quick and easy as possible!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yes!

  • I was just wondering if these recipes would work just as good in my Bean Pot ? How would you do with the time ? I bet they’d be delish because the Bean Pot cooks faster and food are more tenderer. Any idea’s ? Thank-you !

    • Rachel Schultz

      Try the bean pot in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

  • Serena

    Just tried this and it is delicious ! And easy too ~

    • Rachel Schultz

      Thanks! I’m glad.

    I love all the meal ideas you provide me! I struggle coming up with meals every night. When you post a recipe is it the first time you make it or is it something you’ve made again and again and know is a winner?

    • Rachel Schultz

      It varies. Some I’ve made many times before. No matter what I make sure I can vouch for it!

  • Stumbling over this blog has made me look like an international chef in my house! =)

    • Rachel Schultz

      Haha!
