Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo

The boys in this house enjoy Chicken Adobo but I don’t like frying chicken; I was pleased to find this recipe for Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken, which did not ask for me to first brown it in oil.

I reckon it is pretty adaptable to what you have on hand too: I was in desperate need of grocery shopping and only had one onion and part of a red onion on hand to work with, luckily I had just purchased Rice Vinegar so had that on hand – in the past I have subbed in regular white vinegar. That said, I do hope that it tasted alright? Both the guys said it was good. I asked for more specific details but they couldn’t come up with any! (I don’t eat meat so I have no idea how it tasted. I thought it looked better than the stove top version I make and I also liked the consistency of the sauce. I removed the chicken to a serving dish, poured the liquid into a small saucepan and reduced it to a thicker consistency to satisfy my own sensibilities.
