“This should be made in a large slow cooker. Where the recipe calls for soy sauce, use dark soy sauce which is aged longer and is more flavourful and works better for braising. If you can’t find the dark soy sauce, use the same quantity of regular soy sauce mixed with 1 tbsp molasses. You can use chicken thighs or chicken breast for this recipe I prefer using thighs, but, if you are using the breasts, cook them for the shortest time as they tend to dry out when cooked in the slow cooker.”
