This classic, easy Filipino chicken dish slow cooks and simmers in a flavorful sauce that is traditionally served with white rice.
Updated May 8, 2017

Ingredients

  • 8 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs (3 1/2 to 4 lb total)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 10 to 12 garlic cloves, peeled (about 1 whole head)
  • 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Cooked white rice, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Heat nonstick 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat; season chicken thighs with salt. Add half of the chicken thighs in single layer to skillet, and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until brown on both sides; transfer to slow cooker. Repeat with remaining chicken thighs.

    Before serving, remove chicken to serving platter; pour liquid from slow cooker through strainer, discarding peppercorns and bay leaves. Serve chicken and garlic with cooked white rice and some of the strained sauce.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Garlic cloves can be purchased already peeled at the grocery store, which can save you time. Check the produce refrigerated section.
  • tip 2
    Bone-in chicken thighs guarantee tender, flavorful meat, especially when prepared in a slow cooker.
