Using the suggestions of some of the other reviewers, I didn't bother to brown the chicken first. [I'm of the same mindset, I want to have a one-pot meal and not bother dirtying other pots/pans]...

Easy recipe to make. I agree with most of the reviewers. I substituted four skinless, boneless chicken breasts for the recipe, and did not brown. Just put all of the marinade right into the croc...

My family loved this and I liked it, too. I used chicken breasts (on bone with skin removed) and after 4 hours they were perfect. I substituted a healthy amount of chopped candied ginger for t...
