Directions

Generously sprinkle chicken pieces with salt & pepper. Place chicken and all remaining ingredients in a slow cooker. Use a spatula (or your hands) to toss and coat all chicken pieces with sauce. Set slow cooker to low and cook for 3 to 4 hours. Chicken pieces should be very tender but not completely falling off the bone. Remove chicken pieces from slow cooker with tongs and arrange on a large, foil-lined baking sheet. Preheat broiler. Transfer remaining liquid from slow cooker to a saucepan and simmer over medium heat, stirring, to reduce and thicken to desired consistency. Meanwhile, finish chicken pieces under the broiler for about 5 min., turning a couple of times, so the skin becomes slightly charred. Toss broiled chicken pieces with sauce just before serving and/or serve sauce on the side.
