(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and this Slow Cooker Soy-Braised Chicken from The Perfect Pantry has all the Asian flavors that go so well with chicken, and using the slow cooker will keep your house cool!)

As soon as I read through the list of Asian seasonings that make up the braising liquid for this Slow Cooker Soy-Braised Chicken from The Perfect Pantry, I understood why Lydia regretted not making a bigger batch! If you have a big six quart slow cooker, please use it and double this recipe.  Than when the skinless-boneless chicken thighs have simmered until the chicken is falling-apart tender, you can serve the soy-braised chicken over rice, inside lettuce wraps, or even wrapped in a tortilla.  Trust Lydia; she says you will definitely not regret making a double batch of this tasty chicken!

Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:
  • Low-sodium chicken stock
  • dark soy sauce
  • Shao Hsing wine
  • garlic
  • vinegar
  • brown sugar
  • ginger root
  • orange zest
  • fresh-ground black pepper
  • star anise
  • cayenne pepper or dried red chile
  • boneless and skinless chicken thighs
  • arrowroot or cornstarch

  1. When this popped up on my computer screen this morning, I instantly got hungry -- and that's a sign of how much I love this dish. Thanks so much for highlighting it today.

  2. Lydia, I can see why you like it so much!

  3. I made this over the weekend, but I was short on chicken thighs, so I added some carrots & onions to the crock pot. It is marvelous!

  4. Thanks Debbie, so glad you enjoyed it. (She won't admit it, but I think Lydia is one of the best slow cooker cooks on the web!)
