Ingredients

8 scallions, chopped coarse


¼ cup vegetable oil


2 chili peppers, stemmed and seeded


1 (1-inch) fresh ginger, peeled and sliced ¼ inch thick


2 tablespoons Walden Farms pancake syrup


3 garlic cloves, peeled


1 tablespoon thyme


2 teaspoons allspice


¼ teaspoon cardamom


1 teaspoon IP salt


4 pounds bone-in, skin-off chicken pieces (split breasts, thighs, drums)


lime wedges for serving


Preparation

1. Place scallion, oil, chilies, ginger, WF syrup, garlic, thyme, all spice, cardamom, and salt in a food processor or blender and puree. Transfer ½ cup mixture to slow cooker; reserve remaining mixture.


2. Add chicken to slow cooker and coat evenly with scallion mixture. cover and cook until chicken is tender, about 4- 6 hours on low.


3. Position oven rack 10 inches from broiler element and start broiler. Place a wire rack in a foil lined bake sheet and coat with vegetable spray. Transfer chicken onto rack. Brush chicken with half of reserved scallion mixture and broil until lightly charred, about 10 minutes. Flip chicken over, brush with remaining scallion mixture and continue to broil until lightly charred on second side, about 5 minutes. Serve with lime wedges.



Notes:

• If you aren’t into spicy, omit the chili peppers.

• If you accidentally over spice your sauce, add a few squeezes of lime to neutralize some of the heat or add in pureed cucumbers to cool down the heat.

• I recommend doubling the marinating sauce so you have plenty to brush on the chicken for broiling step.
