Wow tender meat falls right off the bone. Very flavorful. Didn't add the sugar and it was delightful just the same! Gathered some fresh chard from the garden sauteed with garlic and served with the chicken instead of bok choy. Perfect! Entire family loved it. Read More

This was quite sour. My first bite I actually coughed as I swallowed the sour sauce and my husband and 4 kids looked up at me expectantly....not wanting to taint their view I said "it's a bit hot (temperature-wise.)" My 2-year-old said "sour" about 20 times while she was eating it. If I make this again I'll do half chicken broth and half vinegar just to cut down on the sour taste. My friend who lived in the Philippines for 2 years liked it and said that's the way chicken adobo is. I didn't serve it with rice (but with bread) so that probably made it seem more sour. Safeway was out of bok choy so I used kale and red cabbage which turned out well (probably healthier than bok choy too.) Read More

This was a fantastic recipe and I'll make it again! I changed it a tad by adding in 2 Tbsps brown sugar and a cup of water. The chicken just fell apart it was so tender. I also served rice with diced avocado. It was a hit! Read More

Good recipe I only added 1/4 cup cider vinegar. Don't stir or touch the whole pot about 20-30 mins. until vinegar has evaporated so no vinegary taste.Let it cook until it falls off the bone. Best served with rice! Read More

I scaled this down to one serving and made it in my smallest slow cooker with just two thighs. 5 minutes was perfect for the bok choy. Thanks for an easy tasty recipe. Read More

This is a fabulouse recipe and easy. I made rice with it because there is so much flavorful juice. I recommend this anytime and is great for a covered dish dinner. Read More

YUM! Only change I made based on some reviews was to reduce vinegar to 1/2 cup and add 1/2 cup chicken broth. My husband doesn't like too much vinegar flavor but he said that it was just right. I LOVE vinegar flavor and I could barely detect it. Served over rice. Ate leftovers over rice and added dollop of sour cream and hot sauce 2 days running. Will make again - husband wants to try it with regular cabbage rather than bok choy but he's a cabbage nut! Thanks! Read More

Extremely easy healthy and tasty. Throw everything in the slow cooker and you're done! My husband and I make slow cooker dinners about three times a week and we often try recipes that end up lacking in flavor but we really liked this one. Read More

Really tasty light easy meal. Very different taste with all of the vinegar. The bok choy is a nice touch and I used a bit more. I served it with brown rice and a salad. Kiddos even approved. Will make this one again. Read More
