  1. Place chicken thighs in a 4-quart slow cooker.
  2. Mix coconut aminos, dry sherry, water, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic together in a small bowl. Pour over chicken.
  3. Cook chicken on High until tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
  4. Transfer chicken to a serving dish, reserving cooking liquid in the slow cooker. Cover chicken with aluminum foil to keep warm.
  5. Stir bok choy into the cooking liquid in the slow cooker; cover and let stand until wilted, about 5 minutes. Transfer bok choy to the serving dish with the chicken. Spoon some of the cooking liquid on top. Discard remaining cooking liquid. Sprinkle sesame seeds over chicken and bok choy.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you are a paleo purest, you can omit the dry sherry and increase the rice vinegar to 2 tablespoons and add 1/4 cup chicken stock.
  • Substitute Chinese cabbage for the bok choy if desired.
  • Cook on Low for 5 to 6 hours if preferred.
