It's called Slow Cooker Adobo chicken. First, I'll give you the original recipe with my changes below or to the side, then I will share the process along with pictures and finally give you my family's final thoughts on the meal.
You can find this recipe on Allrecipes.com.
- (1/2) 1 small sweet onion, sliced
- (4) 8 cloves garlic, crushed (used a garlic press)
- (1/2) 3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- (1/4) 1/2 cup (white) vinegar
- (1.5 pounds) 1 (3 pound) whole chicken (chicken breast pieces), cut into pieces
- can of chicken broth
- 2 bay leaves
- 1-3 tbsp. of corn starch mixed with equal parts water
- 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.
Pictures of the process:

Family Thoughts: I loved the meal. I thought the chicken was awesome. I think I will add more onions the next time and also more cornstarch/water mixture to make the sauce a little thicker. I love sauces. I also saw a variation that used red wine vinegar so I might try it. My daughter just had the chicken on her plate but then she asked for the onions. I didn't think she would like them however she thought they were awesome! [UPDATE: She loved the chicken the first day but not so much as leftovers.] My son, as you can see from his plate, hated everything. He wouldn't even try the chicken so I gave him corndogs and he hates broccoli. Maybe one of these days he will try the whole meal. Will I make this again? You betcha! I can't wait. Stay tuned next Friday for the next installment of Chef Mommy. I'm thinking another crockpot dish using ground beef...hmmmm....
