Prep time

10 minutes

Cooking Time

8 hours

Serves 4 – 6

Ingredients

2 medium onions, sliced

4 garlic cloves, crushed (5mls dried garlic flakes)

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 bay leaf

¼tsp black pepper

1 – 2 pieces of chicken per person

1 teaspoon paprika

1 cup long-grain white rice

1 large head bok choy, cut into 2 cm strips (you can use cabbage if you prefer)

2 large spring onions, thinly sliced

Method

  1. In a slow cooker, combine the onions, garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, bay leaf, and black pepper. Place the chicken on top and sprinkle with the paprika.
  2. Cook, covered, until the chicken and onions are tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total cooking time).
  3. Twenty minutes before serving, cook the rice according to the package directions.
  4. Ten minutes before serving, if the slow cooker is on the low setting, turn it to high. Gently fold the bok choy into the chicken and cook, covered, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with the rice and sprinkle with the scallions.
