Cuisine: Chicken, Filapino, Quick & Easy, Slow Cooker
Servings: 6


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 8 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce


  • Combine the onion, garlic, vinegar and soy sauce in the bottom of the slow cooker insert.
  • Dice the chicken into 1 to 1 1/2 inch chunks and toss in the marinade.
  • Toss to coat.
  • Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.

For a Thicker Sauce (right in the crockpot):

  • 30 minute before serving turn the crock pot to high. Stir and tilt the lid to allow evaporation. The sauce will slightly thicken.

For a Quicker Thick Sauce:

  • Follow the directions above but ladle out at least half the liquid.
  • Heat over medium-high heat in a wide-bottomed saucepan or skillet. Bring to a boil then turn down to low. Stir every minute or two until the sauce thickens (about 10 minutes).

Freezer Meal Prep:

  • Prep the ingredients as directed and toss into a large freezer bag. Label and freeze for up to 6 weeks.
