Yummo. I made this but tweaked it JUST a bit. First I doubled the recipe (big eaters in the house) I used 2 cans diced tomatoes (instead of passata) and added finely sliced carrot and onions. I fried off the onion in a non stick pan and heated through the tomatoes, sugar, garlic and soy sauce in the same pan before pouring over chicken. Wow, my household demand I make this every week now. Thank you - 14 Jul 2011


Something else. Instead of serving with a green vegetable on the side, I added a bag of baby spinach to this just before serving. - 24 Mar 2009


This is a great, simple dish, and hard to see how you could ever go wrong with it. It has become a staple in our house, and special enough to serve to our house guests. I generally use chicken breast fillets, and it doesn't really need the length of time it takes in a slow cooker. I use the electric frypan and it is all done in under 1 hour. - 18 Jul 2012
