We love eating out when it comes to ethnic foods, simply because I don’t know how to make most of the dishes at home. I still try a lot of Asian dishes regardless in hopes to find some new favorites. This one is one of those I’ll be making over and over again! I recommend doubling the recipe to make it worth the prep time. The chicken gets a really nice flavor to it cooking in the sauce, plus you make it in a crockpot what’s not to love?! I’ll be adding some fan favorite pictures later, because this got a lot of hits when I posted a picture on Facebook showing what we had for dinner. By far better than any packet we have tried in the store, so give it a shot! If you make it be sure to contact me and send a picture I’ll attach any recipe you try to the blog post!

Add coated chicken pieces to pan. Sauté 1-2 minutes until browned. (It chicken will still be raw in the middle at this point, that’s okay)
