  1. I see the ingredient list but no directions. What is being poured over the chicken after it’s shredded? How long should it stay in the crock pot and at what setting?

  2. Yes, a set of directions would be nice.. it looks like the chicken is cooked with “something” but then there is a sauce poured over the cooked, shredded meat. Can’t tell what ingredients the chicken is “cooked” with versus what is in the sauce.

  3. it is cooked in the sauce taken out shredded then the sauce poured over the top

  4. this looks delicious! I will have to try this!

  5. Mouth watering ….

  6. If anybody else doesn’t have a slow cooker (or doesn’t have 4-5 hours), you can make it this on the hob. Just throw it all into a pan, plus a cup or two of water. Keep on low-medium heat and turn the chicken every couple of minutes. Make sure to keep an eye on it just to make sure the pot doesn’t boil over (I made that mistake…) Once the water has boiled away and you’re left with just the sauce, the chicken should be done though a meat thermometer might come in handy just to make sure it’s cooked through 🙂

  7. This is beyond words, I want to eat it right now. It really looks delicious 🙂

  8. Ok I made this tonight, followed it exactly, however it was not that great. Both my husband and daughter didn’t care for it so I will not make it again. Another meal unpinned from pinterest!

  9. I made this tonight, it was delicious! I made a few substitutions – Instead of the hoisin sauce I added a tablespoon of almond butter and 2 teaspoons of sesame oil. Also used arrowroot starch instead of cornstarch. Will definitely make this again

  10. What a lovely recipe and amazing photography!

  11. You have brought up very fantastic points, thank you for the post.
