      Usually, I buy only whole chickens, when they're cheap, and keep them in my freezer, so I requested a consultation with Chef Mille® ™ to inquire whether a whole chicken, suitably dissected, would be an acceptable substitute for the thighs. After receiving this assurance, and after some of the hard-to-find-where-I-live ingredients showed up in the mail (along with some other goodies -- a wonderful surprise package!!) I proceeded as follows: After the birdie was properly thawed, I set about cutting it into legs, thighs, wings and breast halves. Then I cut each breast half into thirds in an attempt to approximate the size and shape of chicken thighs. I did not remove the skin, as don't generally do that - the bird's lost most of its dignity by this point, I'll let it keep its skin! As I was mixing up the marinade/sauce ingredients, I tasted the individual items and immediately became concerned that it would turn out too "hot" for my family to eat! After an emergency consultation with the Chef, and his assurance that some of heat would disappear during cooking, I felt confident that everyone would be able to eat it, so I used the full amounts of all the marinade ingredients. From that point, I proceeded as the recipe instructs, but the refrigerator was full, so I kept it overnight in my seasonal walk-in refrigerator -- also known as The Garage. (I made this a few weeks ago, when it was still consistently cold out there!) The chicken was done in about 6 hours, but I let it go for about 2 more hours because we weren't ready to eat yet - I hadn't made the rice yet, and the family was working together on chores. Nobody was complaining about being hungry, so I wasn't going to interrupt them for a meal! I sneaked off for a minute and pressed my other crockpot into service to make Mirj's Perfect Crockpot Rice. By the time the rice was ready and the chores were finished, the chicken was even more tender and it just about fell off the bones as I served it. It was a little bit "hotter" than the kids like most of the time, but the whole combination was so delicious that they ate it anyway and wanted seconds. (Next time, I'll use a little less of the hot stuff, but not much less) I realized after we were done, that I had forgotten the cashews. Then I found out that someone had gotten into them and I wouldn't have had any to put on this anyway. Another "next time reminder" -- lock up the cashews!

      Very good. Before cooking, the salsa verde was the standout flavor, after cooking it was a nice complex sauce with just the right amount of heat for me. Doubled the thai chili sauce, substituted some minced red onion for the scallions, substituted 1/2 worchestershire and 1/2 soy sauce for the fish sauce, and subbed ground ginger. Mixed the sauce together the previous morning, mixed with boneless skinless chicken breasts in the evening. Cooked for 6 hours on low and 1 hour high. Tender and fall apart. A great crockpot recipe.
