oe lolo kine kane wa wahines. use the akamai. 3 hours is high. no be da kine lolo bakatadae


what is the serving size for the nutritional information?


i think the setting is high. when you have something on low with a crock pot, it usually takes about 6 to 8 hours to complete. the fact that this person says 3 hours makes me believe the setting is on high. but i'm not really sure myself.

what setting when cooking, high, med or low???


this chicken looks delicious, the recipe says cook 3 hrs with lid on, i am assuming this is on hi?.. thanks


have to try this one


smucker's also makes sugar free orange marmalade, i think it taste's much better than the regular. might help you cut down on some sweetness.


has anyone tried to cut the chicken up before cooking and adding other ingredients like diced onions or other stuff to make a chinese food like dish to serve over rice?


you don't need to add liquid, chicken is full of moisture.i never add it because it will make them watery.the juice from the chicken will steam them. i have never had anything burn in a crock pot.cook on low for at least six hours


i put all ingredients together and cooked in crock pot,it was ok. sauce is thin if i make again i will thicken with flour or cornstarch. its pretty sweet,so i'm not sure what to add to help that. its a super easy recipe, which is a plus.


chicken creates it's own juices. as it cooks the juices run out. pretty sure that's what they're talking about. guess i'll find out tomorrow.


do you put any liquid in with the chicken? i am guessing you do so it doesn't burn, but how much and what kind of liquid?


how do you find what is book marked


my guess is it on high bc when i was cooking something for 6-8hrs it was on low heat

Pretty sure it is on low first, then high for 3 hours, that how reads above, can we use another flavor of jam, like peach ?
