[Serves 4]

½ cup dry sherry
1/3 cup soy sauce
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 T. grated peeled fresh ginger
1 tsp. Chinese five-spice powder
3 cloves garlic, crushed with press
1 bunch green onions, cut in 2-inch pieces  (white and green parts separated
3 lbs. skinless chicken thighs
1 bag (16 oz.) fresh vegetables for stir fry

In 5-6 quart slow cooker, combine sherry, soy sauce, sugar, ginger, five-spice powder, garlic, and white parts of green onions.  (Coarsely chop remaining green parts; wrap and refrigerate until serving time.)  Add chicken thighs and coat with sherry mixture.  Cover slow cooker with lid and cook on low 8 hours or on high 4 hours.  Just before serving, place vegetables in microwave-safe medium bowl and cook in microwave as label directs.  Transfer chicken to platter. Stir vegetables into slow cooker.  Spoon vegetable mixture around chicken.  Sprinkle with green onions.

NOTE: For those who prefer white meat, use breasts.   “Bone in” will stay moister but you can use whole boneless, too.)
