This looks like a good recipe, but a few ingredients are above and beyond me. One TEASPOON of red pepper flakes? Holy Mollie, my hair would be on fire! I think it is heavy on the soy sauce, too. Well, I can adjust. Ads in the middle of my screen blocked out the first of the video, but I guess that was raw chicken breast, thawed if frozen. My 5-Spice Chinese bottle has been on the shelf for years. Do I need to buy a new one? I have never found a use for it until now. Love Thai food, so I will certainly have to try this.

Yay, another great recipe for our new slow cooker! I love this wonderful machine more and more every time I use it :)) All we had to do at home in the evening was to prepare the sauce and make some delicious stir fry with veggies from our garden. A perfect meal!

Chicken is so versatile and lends itself so deliciously to Thai style cooking which is definitely one of my favorites. And what is easier than letting it bubble away in the slow cooker during the day and then preparing the sauce just before the meal? It is a very good recipe, we all enjoyed it and look forward to making it again soon.

I love to come across easy looking chicken recipes. This has one has a lot of ingredients that I don't normally use like coconut milk and the Chinese 5 spice. Is that something I would find in the International aisle of the grocery store or do I need to look in a specialty store? I would also leave out the red pepper flakes as I find that always too spicy for my family's liking!

I took chicken breast out of the freezer this morning as that is what I felt like to eat tonight for supper. I had no idea what I was going to do with it. I came to my trusty recipe lion website to look for ideas. Well I have found it! It is such a dreary day today, winter is on its way here in South Africa, so this is the prefect kind of comfort food for a day like today. Can't wait to get started!

This looks really easy to make and I really like that RecipeLion has included a video. I am not familiar with Chinese 5 spice. Could some one fill me in on it please? Is it intense or a subtle flavoring? I take it that this is probably considered a sweet and sour recipe or am I wrong? Do you think it would be ok to add fresh chopped red pepper instead of the flakes?
