    Okay, so we made this recipe even though it says 5 hours and easy. So 1st problem was the chicken didn’t cook in the 5 hours set up the way the recipe said. Finally put chicken on pressure cook high for 12 minutes and it had great flavor.
    However, just putting it over rice noodles made the meal very bland. I would make and marinade the chicken but would never do this recipe as written it was very disappointing.

    Like the previous reviewer stated, the chicken was not cooked after the 5 hours. Pressure cooked it for 14 minutes after that and it turned out great. Will try cooking it for 8 hours next time.
