  • 12 boneless skinless chicken thighs about 3 pounds
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 3/4 C soy sauce
  • 6 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 3/4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 4 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 4 1/2 tsp cold water


  • Place chicken in a 4 qt. crock pot.
  • In a large bowl, combine the sugar, soy sauce, cider vinegar, ginger, garlic and pepper.
  • Pour over chicken.
  • Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or until chicken is tender.
  • Remove chicken to a serving platter; keep warm.
  • Skim fat from cooking liquid or put it through a mesh strainer.
  • Place liquid in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Combine cornstarch and water until smooth.
  • Gradually stir into liquid and stir until sauce is thickened.
  • Serve with chicken and rice.
  • Note: I halved the recipe and it still worked fine in my crock pot. I kept the amount of sauce the same and it was done in about 2 1/2 hours.
