apple cider vinegar
ground black pepper to taste
skinless, bone-in chicken thighs
1 large head
bok choy, cut into 1-inch strips
green onions, sliced thinly
Wow, tender meat falls right off the bone. Very flavorful. Didn't add the sugar and it was delightful just the same! Gathered some fresh chard from the garden, sauteed with garlic and served with the chicken instead of bok choy. Perfect! Entire family loved it.
This was quite sour. My first bite, I actually coughed as I swallowed the sour sauce, and my husband and 4 kids looked up at me expectantly....not wanting to taint their view, I said, "it's a bit hot (temperature-wise.)" My 2-year-old said, "sour" about 20 times while she was eating it. If I make this again, I'll do half chicken broth and half vinegar, just to cut down on the sour taste. My friend who lived in the Philippines for 2 years liked it and said that's the way chicken adobo is. I didn't serve it with rice (but with bread) so that probably made it seem more sour. Safeway was out of bok choy, so I used kale and red cabbage, which turned out well (probably healthier than bok choy, too.)
This was a fantastic recipe and I'll make it again! I changed it a tad by adding in 2 Tbsps brown sugar and a cup of water. The chicken just fell apart it was so tender. I also served rice with diced avocado. It was a hit!
Good recipe, I only added 1/4 cup cider vinegar. Don't stir or touch the whole pot ,about 20-30 mins. until vinegar has evaporated, so no vinegary taste.Let it cook until it falls off the bone. Best served with rice!
I scaled this down to one serving and made it in my smallest slow cooker with just two thighs. 5 minutes was perfect for the bok choy. Thanks for an easy, tasty recipe.
This is a fabulouse recipe and easy. I made rice with it because there is so much flavorful juice. I recommend this anytime and is great for a covered dish dinner.
Really tasty, light, easy meal. Very different taste with all of the vinegar. The bok choy is a nice touch, and I used a bit more.
I served it with brown rice and a salad. Kiddos even approved. Will make this one again.
Extremely easy, healthy, and tasty. Throw everything in the slow cooker and you're done! My husband and I make slow cooker dinners about three times a week and we often try recipes that end up lacking in flavor, but we really liked this one.
