A slow cooker recipe that yields great results! I used chicken tenderloins instead of thighs and doubled the sauce ingredients, keeping the sherry and salt the same. Instead of fresh ginger, I used some ground ginger. I did add a little brown sugar at the end of cooking to sweeten the sauce just a bit and thickened it by stirring some flour into a cup of the cooking liquid and then returned it to the pot. The slaw was delicious and I used sweet Hawaiian slider buns. Will definitely make this again!Volunteer Field Editor
