1. Is that 2 Tablespoons of Chinese 5 spice? That seems like a lot. Just wanted to make sure before I put that much in. Thank you. It looks amazing.

    1. Hi Stacy

      Yes that is correct because their is alot of food going into the slow cooker so we did not found it too much at all 🙂

  2. Hi I’m interested in making this dish but what can I use instead of peppers and courgette as I don’t like them?
    Many thanks

    1. Hi

      Yes you could substitute for mixed spice, as five spice is made up of: star anise, cloves, Chinese cinnamon, Sichuan pepper, and fennel seeds, but five-spice powder can also include anise seeds, gingerroot, nutmeg, turmeric, Amomum villosum pods, cardamom pods, licorice, orange peel, or galangal

      hope this helps 🙂

    I’ve run out of garlic puree but have garlic powder, can i substitute with this ? This is my second time at making this and we all loved it !!

    1. Hi Sharon,

      You could do but just use less of the powder as in our experience it can make it quite salty ????

    Incredibly delicious, I have found that adding more soy sauce mate it more flavoursome but that is according to taste. Mushrooms went in the second time I made this and more peppers and spring onions and everybody loved it.

    1. Hi Jo

      Yes our slow cooker at the time we did the recipe was old, so we will be updating soon, so low should be ok, just check to make sure the chicken is not pink inside after 2 hours ????

    1. Hi Yvonne,

      With the vegetables the water comes out of the them and then mixes with the soy sauce and gave us enough liquid to coat the vegetables 🙂

    1. Hi Lorraine,

      This is one of our old recipes and was cooked in our very old slow cooker, so we did not need to add water as the water in the vegetables and the soy sauce was enough to make this a lovely sticky chinese meal. When we upgraded our slow cooker they cook alot quicker than our old one so we are going through our old recipes to adjust the timings. I would use a little water if after a couple of hours when you go to stir it it is sticking to the bottom 🙂

    1. Hi Alison

      It would be 7 hours on low to make sure the chicken breasts are cooked and at the required temperature 🙂

  5. I am making this recipe as it looks delicious. Just wanted to check, is it ground coriander or is it coriander leaf please? Thank you
