At this Crock-Pot dish’s core is meat or poultry braised in a vinegary sauce. This easy, mild version cooks onions, chicken, soy sauce, and vinegar in a slow cooker, and takes advantage of bone-in chicken thighs’ extra flavor. The onions absorb the savory sauce, and all that’s needed to complete the meal is a pile of steamed rice to soak everything up. Get our Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo recipe.
