Clay Pot Chicken

Lesley made this as an experiment – the first time she’d used this receipe.  It was wonderful!  I modified it slightly in order to cook it in a crock pot.

4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp. fish sauce
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. hoisin sauce
2 tbsp. lime juice
1 oz. fresh lemon grass, chopped finely
4 large boneless chicken breasts, cut into large chunks
1 large white onion, sliced
1 fresh long red chili, sliced thinly or 3 dried red chilis
1/2 c. chicken stock
4 oz. fresh shittake mushrooms, sliced
4 green onions, cut into 2″ pieces
1 lb. cabbage, cut into chunks

Combine garlic, sauces, juice and lemon grass in large bowl.  Add chicken and toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.

Place chicken mixture in crock pot with onion, chili and stock; mix gently to combine.  Cook on high 3 – 3 1/2 hours.  Add mushroom, green onion, and cabbage; cook an additional 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally.

Serve with rice or wide noodles.
