  • 2-3 lbs bone in chicken, I used a combination of drumsticks and breasts
  • 1 whole onion, sliced into rings
  • 3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 5 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 tablespoons peppercorn, cracked (or just use pepper if you are in a rush)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • chives
  • rice


  1. Place chicken and onion in slow cooker. Pour soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaves, garlic, and peppercorn into into slow cooker and stir around, coating chicken. Add brown sugar, cornstarch, and chicken broth and stir again. Cook on low for 5-6 hours, break and shred chicken up a bit (a potato masher works really well for this), serve over rice and garnish with chives.
