Slow Cooker Canadian Chicken


First I need to start with saying half of my family is actually Canadian. That being said, I actually know very little about Canadian cuisine my grandmother made very few recipes or meals, but what she did make, she made really well. In truth she was not best cook either, but again what she did make, she made really well. Here is one of the few things I really remember her making.

Full rime 6 hours
Serves 4-6

The needs-

5-6 chicken thighs
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp cider vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp ground white pepper (or black)
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

The know-

In your slow cooker, arrange chicken into a single layer as much as possible.

In a small bowl combine syrup, vinegar, and soy sauce.

Pour over chicken.

Add in minced garlic.

Sprinkle over pepper, ginger, and cayenne.

Cover and cook 6 hours.

Remove lid carefully to avoid steam.

Remove chicken from slow cooker to a serving platter.

Pass liquid through a mesh strainer and serve along side chicken.

Cheers!
