Not so good. Added cornstarch, mustard and honey to sauce and finished by grilling chicken

Horrible diections, just plain awful, The only reason for 3 stars? What I did to save the meat. So I already had the ingredients in the fridge before reading the reviews, I decided to put the chicken on the grille at 250 for 45 minutes. Turned out to be the juiciest chicken Ive ever had. Not much flavor from the soda at all but I added salt pepper, garlic. Save!

The worst meal that I have ever made!! Nothing like the photo!
Not good AT ALL. Would not recommend.

I have made General Tso chicken in the past, and typically with dishes like the one in the photo, you usually have corn starch or maybe some kind of flour which allows you to create that thick breading around the chicken. I don't know how well it would work in a crock pot, but it is something important to note. For added flavor, I would also throw in garlic, sugar, green onion, and/or rice vinegar... in the comments below Bill S. also gave some helpful tips. :)

it was dry inside. it was fine after we added ketchup but other than that poor. The dryness really made it sad.

This recipe was awful. It was a waste of perfectly good chicken. I should have read the other reviews before trying. No need to waste your time

Didn't look like picture. Instructions not specific. I did what I could do. Tasted awful. Would not recommend.

Not sure where this version got their idea, but its off. I've done this with regular Fanta orange soda and a little corn starch reducing in the crock pot for about an hour first to thicken up and then mixing in the soy and adding the chicken. Stir it up every 15 minutes or it will stick and burn. The sugar and starch is necessary to make it glaze like the picture, Hope this helps.

The Chicken was nice enough, we ate it, but nothing like the picture, most of the orange soda and soy sauce was on the bottom of the pot.

Something is missing from this recipe. The only instructions were "Combine chicken, orange soda and soy sauce in a gallon freezer bag. Refrigerate overnight. Cook in a crockpot for 6-8 hours. Serve with rice. It has a wonderful flavor!" What I got when I got home was blackened chicken with all the soda and soy sauce burnt to the bottom of my crockpot :( It was on low.

We did not like this recipe. It was not edible. I followed the recipe exactly....not sure what went wrong.
