A sweet and spicy glaze naps this richly hued, Asian-style chicken, which practically falls off the bone thanks to a gentle cooking process in the slow cooker.

1/2 cup(s) dry sherry
1/3 cup(s) soy sauce
1/4 cup(s) packed brown sugar
2 tablespoon(s) grated peeled fresh ginger
1 teaspoon(s) Chinese five-spice powder
3 clove(s) garlic, crushed with press
1 bunch(es) green onions, cut into 2-inch pieces (white and green parts separated)
3 pound(s) bone-in skinless chicken thighs
1 bag(s) (16-ounce) fresh veggies for stir-fry (snow peas, carrots, broccoli, red pepper, etc.)


1.In 5- to 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 as manufacturer directs, on low 8 hours or on high 4 hours.
2.Just before serving, place vegetables in microwave-safe medium bowl and cook in microwave as label directs.

According to the CDC Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in children and adolescents; about 151,000 people below the age of 20 years have diabetes. When diabetes strikes during childhood, it is routinely assumed to be type 1, or juvenile-onset diabetes. However, in the last 2 decades, type 2 diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes) has been reported among U.S. children and adolescents with increasing frequency.
