I plan to substitute bone-in chicken breasts for this but thighs would be good too for Phase II.
1 (3 pound) whole chicken or equivalent in chicken pieces
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup soy sauce
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup honey Substitute agave syrup or other SF syrup or Splenda
1 teasp Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 TABLESPOONS minced garlic
Remove skin from chicken, empty inner cavity of contents within. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and place inside the slow cooker.
In a bowl, stir together remaining ingredients well. Pour mixture over chicken, cover and cook on low setting for 8-9 hours or high setting for 4 -5 hours.
