I also found lots missing from the picture and finished product. The recipe is not complete but I will do some adding and will let everyone know the out come.

Followed the recipe ingredients however I did coat the chicken pieces in flour seasoned with garlic, pepper and a touch of cayenne and fried them in olive oil and butter blend. After they were cooked I added some of the leftover flour, maybe a hand full, to the crock pot over the chicken and poured liquid ingredients over top. I also added the pineapple chunks. A bit of red pepper flakes and splash of honey topped it off. It came out just like the picture and it was delicious!

Follow Gray's Farms Idea with the recipie,it works. Ive tried it twice. The Second time I used Corn Starch and fried the chicken pieces like in Chinese food and it turned out perfect. I think Tempura Batter would work really well too. However,given the way we are adjusting the recipe,perhaps it should be reposted and renamed more like a "Sweet And Sour Chicken". I could see adding some red chili flakes and sesame seeds making it more like Sesame Chicken. Give it a shot. Cooking is all about adapting and changing things the way you like them. If you do cook it like I did. Use more chicken. My kids almost ate all of it before I got home. :-)

I read the reviews and edited the recipe to my taste. I cut the chicken into chunks then fried it first. I added it to the crockpot with the can of pineapple chunks, a little more soy sauce and brown sugar. The flour from the fried chicken ended up making the sauce thicker. My family enjoyed the recipe.

I have to say I agree with most of the reviews. Based on the picture, I thought the "sauce" would be thicker. It's still very runny and the chicken wasn't very eye appealing. It was still good, though.

ACTUAL RECIPE CLEARLY NEEDS SOME CHANGES - Reviews for this are HORRIBLE... Thank goodness I read them beforehand. Here's a couple changes that yielded a delicious result :) Either reduce liquids (pineapple juice & soy sauce) by half or double the chicken (using 4 lbs of chicken chunks) but leave same amount of liquids. I also added 1/3 cup of flour to thicken it up and cooked longer, for a total of 10.5 hours. Lastly, actual recipe fails to state that you need to cut the chicken tenderloins into chunks. Mine turned out fabulous... Serve on a bed of rice and you'll feel like you're in Hawaii! YUM :)

yes, it was very watery....i was quite disappointed since this was my first recipe for my first new crock pot. but, strained and placed on white rice, it was good, but not a thumbs up. kids thought it tasted like turkey. i have a feeling that this recipe had the liquid ingredients measured wrong, maybe try a few ounces of each and then add a little brown sugar. i will try that some day and will post my results. but, the only way to get that chicken to look like the photo, is to maybe first coat it is corn starch and do a quick light stir fry with oil just enough to crisp up the chicken, and then add it to the crock pot with the remaining ingredients as i measured......again, will see how that turns out next time.
