  • 1.5 lbs skinless boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup real mirin
  • 1-2 inches grated fresh ginger
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 white potato
  • 4 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2 thinly sliced red bell peppers
  • sesame seeds
  • spring onions


  1. Add grated ginger, crushed garlic, soy sauce, mirin, and honey to your slow cooker and whisk until well combined.

  2. Peel and grate the white potato and add to sauce.

  3. Add chicken thighs, put on the lid and set to 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

  4. If cooking on high, remove the lid at the 3-hour mark and add broccoli and sliced bell pepper and cook uncovered for the last hour. If cooking on low, do the same but for the last 2 hours. This is to let gently steam the vegetables and thicken the sauce a little due to water evaporation.

  5. The chicken will easily fall apart. No need to cut or shred.

  6. Serve over rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds and sliced spring onions.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is great for freezing. After the 7 hour cooking time, BEFORE adding the veggies, remove half and freeze. Then add only half the veggies and steam and serve. 

To defrost, place in the fridge for 12-24 hours and steam veggies separately.
