    I did it in the oven, and put the cornstarch in at the beginning, and the sauce was ready at 90 mins. Didn't need to do step 2.

    The recipe appears to be missing some liquid! I used a whole cut-up chicken; browned the chicken (gives it a better appearance and flavor), poured off most of the fat and sautéed the carrot, garlic, ginger, and green onion briefly; deglazed the pan with 1/4 cup chicken stock and 1/4 cup rice wine; and added another 1/2 cup stock to the crockpot along with the sauce, plus a splash of lime juice. Four hours on low is plenty, especially if you are using half breasts. With these adjustments, tasty!

    I made this, and am glad that I read the reviews. I added two cans of low sodium chicken broth, and the juice of 3 limes for additional flavor. It was good, but it was more of a broth with veggies and chicken in it, not a thick sauce. If you don't put in enough liquid, and just follow the recipe the soy and balsamic basically ferment the chicken.... Probably wouldn't make this again. So-so.

    With the exception of the amount of chicken, I followed the recipe and it was fabulous! I used four legs (thigh/drumstick). Might try browning the chicken first next time as it did look a little anemic when it was done.

    Great Recipe! Only thing I do differently is add water and cook less than it calls for. I too think 3 hours is about right. Second time I'm making it I'm adding baby bok choy and sno snap peas the last 30 mins or so. yum! I also agree the smell it omits while cooking can be torture sometimes, it smells soo good!!

    The reviews really helped me on this. First I browned my chicken on all sides first, removed the chicken, then I added in sliced mushrooms and browned them, then added in the carrots. Once they were all coated, I threw the rest of the ingredients in the crock pot with a 1 cup of chicken stock. Since I browned my chicken first, it only had to cook for 2 hours. The last few minutes, I added in some sliced baby bock choy and was wonderful! Next night even better! I will definitely be making this ag

    Great dish- the only change I made was adding about a cup of vegetable broth I had laying around. 4 hrs on low was perfect. Loved the ginger, green onion and cilantro.

    This was a good recipe, and will go into the rotation. Thank goodness I read the reviews, though. I cooked it for 3 hours (one hour on high, by accident, and then 2 more hours on low, once I realized my mistake). It probably could have cooked even less. I have no idea where they got 6 hours from! I've very rarely cooked with ground coriander, so it was nice to use something different for a change, and I think it added an interesting flavor. I served it with brown rice and sugar snap peas.
