Sorry for the low score - Disclaimer provided, Member SlapAndDash

Sorry, but I just didn't like this. The mandarine, tomato paste, soy flavour just didn't sit well for us. The marinade had alot of potential (I marinated the chicken overnight) but after I popped it in the slow cooker the ingredients separated and sort of curdled. The corn starch/milk/water brought it back a little but it seemed to lack something (onions maybe?). Disclaimer: please note that I didn't have frozen condensed orange juice and used condensed orange drink concentrate instead. I also used fresh mandarines and not tinned mandarines and as well as fresh ginger.
