    The ingredients don't match the picture!

    It works if you put this in the slow cooker on high for 3 - 4 hours but I use a little less soy and honey.

    I added HALF a tsp, was perfect! Brilliant, quick, easy &amp; cheap(ish) dinner! Even my fussy DD ate it &amp; enjoyed it &amp; even ate some of the chicken! Chucked in some steamed mangetout &amp; baby corn to help with my '5-a-day'!!

    This might be (or is!) a completely stupid question, but does the recipe say half a teaspoon of five spice, or 1-2 teaspoons? TIA!

    very easy to make. Really tasty we had it with rice instead of noodles.

    It is quick, simple, tasty, and uses ingredients most people have in their larder/cupboards.
