Before you start

A slow cooker is needed to make this recipe.

Method

  1. Add all ingredients, except chicken to the ceramic cooking pot, then mix well. Add the chicken pieces and stir to coat them with the mixture.
  2. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on 'low' for 6-8 h, or until the chicken meat is tender enough to be "pulled" apart easily with a fork. Alternatively, cook on 'high' for 4-5 h.
  3. Serve the chicken with the sauce.
