An easy slow cooker recipe for a whole chicken. This is such a simple recipe for something SO good! Serve hot with steamed rice
- 1 small sweet onion, sliced (optional)
- 8 garlic cloves, crushed
- 3⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄2 cup vinegar
- 1 (3 lb) whole chickens, cut into pieces
- Place chicken in a slow cooker. In a small bowl mix the onion, garlic, soy sauce, and vinegar, and pour over the chicken. Cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours.
This turned out pretty good! I used breasts and thighs which I made cuts in to allow it to absord more sauce before putting in the crockpot. I didn't add the onion, but I did add 6 peppercorns and 2 bay leaves, I cut the garlic to 4 cloves, and used low sodium soy sauce. After cooking for 6 hours, the sauce was really watery. I prefer adobo with a thicker sauce, so I strained out the sauce and reduced it by half in a pan on the stove. Then I poured it back onto the chicken (which I deboned and took off the skin when the sauce was on the stove). I kept it on warm until dinner. It was quite tasty- thanks!
I use to love chicken adobo when I was married to my ex-husband who is filipino. I loved the ease of this version in the crockpot, and it was just as good as doing it on the stove. My family loved it too as they had never had it before. The only thing I did different was I added about 2 Tbsp sugar and a couple bay leaves to the sauce.
