  1. I want to reduce this recipe to 2 servings (1 large chicken breast, etc.). Do I still cook it for 6 hours on low?
    Also, what can I sub for the hoisin sauce or should I just leave it out? Thank you.

  2. Don’t know what happened to my comment. Guess it was saved or something. Anyway I have two questions. 1. What can I use in place of hoisin sauce in the honey garlic chicken? 2. If I want to make 1/2 the recipe (2 servings instead of 4), should I still cook on low for 6 hours in my 6 quart slow cooker? Thank you.

  3. I made this recipe tonight there was so much flavors it was so good it’s a keeper I added broccoli and I didn’t have jasmine rice so brown rice was what I had to use
