I found this recipe on Leigh Ann Wilkes blog Homebased Mom. It is easy to assemble cooks in 3 hours and is delicious.
I have found a new love for chicken thighs, I don't know why but they just work. I was also happy as I had everything in the house to put this quick meal together. This was a perfect meal on a very busy day. Here is the simple recipe:
Put 5-12 frozen chicken thighs in a crock pot.
3/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup sugar
2 minced garlic cloves
6 Tablespoons cider vinegar
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon pepper
5 teaspoons cornstarch
5 teaspoons water
Pour sauce minus the cornstarch and water over the chicken thighs. Cook on low 2 1/2 to 5 hours. that is a wide range but depending on the size of your crock pot and the amount of chicken you use. I used about 6 frozen thighs and the full amount of sauce. It was done in about 3 hours on low. It is safe to leave your crock pot on the warm setting for 2 hours.
Remove meat, clean off any fat and shred meat. Pour sauce in a strainer or a gravy separator. Remove fat. pour sauce in a sauce pan and heat add cornstarch mixed with water. Stir until sauce comes to a boil. Boil for a minute or two. Serve chicken and sauce over sticky rice. I added steamed veggies for a perfect meal.
