    Wow! My family Loved this! I put it in the crockpot (except cornstarch and rice). I added the cornstarch 10 minutes before eating it to thicken it up a bit. Because I put it in the CP, I was able to eliminate the oil. I substituted Splenda. I served it with brown rice and steamed broccoli. - 2/26/13

    This was great! I cooked my chicken in broth the night before then reheated it w/ the sauce the next day. I added broccoli & sugar snap peas and served it all over brown rice. I did double the sauce but I ended up w/more than 4 servings due to the additions. Can't wait for leftovers tonight! - 9/9/10

    My friend and I made this dish and it was fabulous it tasted just like chinese food you buy at the take out place. In stead of cubing it up we just left the chicken whole and served it on the side with stteamed veggies...mmmmm delish!! - 9/16/10
