Pour this in with your aminos mixture from above and whisk everything together, until really well combined.

Place your chicken pieces, 1/4 cup of flour, Chinese 5 spice mix, sea salt and pepper in a large bowl, toss until evenly coated.

Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

Add your coated chicken pieces to the hot oil, shaking off the excess starch.

Cook stirring occasionally until evenly golden brown.

Add your browned chicken into the crockpot.

Pour the prepared sauce on top.
