Ingredients

Method

1.

Heat half the oil in a large frying pan; cook chicken, turning, until browned all over. Place chicken in a 4.5-litre (18-cup) slow cooker.

2.

Meanwhile, process onion, ginger, spices, chilli, pepper, garlic, thyme and remaining oil until finely chopped. Add sugar, vinegar and juice; process until smooth. Pour paste over chicken. Cook, covered, on low, for 4 hours. Season to taste.

3.

Serve chicken with sauce; sprinkle with extra thyme, if you like.

To freeze; complete the recipe to the end of step 2. Pack into freezer-proof containers, leaving a 2.5cm (1 inch) space to allow for expansion. Seal, label and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge. Reheat in a saucepan or microwave on medium power (50%) until heated through.
