    2500g boneless, skinless chicken thighs (this is about 24 thighs) - or more if feeding teenage boys!
    3 large onions, peeled and finely chopped
    1 cup tomato ketchup
    1 cup water
    3 tblsp soft brown sugar, packed
    3 tblsp vinegar (malt or cider)
    1 tblsp worcester sauce
    (optional - .5 tsp chili powder, or to taste)


Place the chopped onions at the bottom of a large (6.5 litre size) slow-cooker (crockpot)
Put the chicken thighs on top
Mix in a bowl the ketchup, water, sugar, vinegar and worcester sauce, and chili powder if liked (adjust amout of chili depending on strength and personal taste - better to use too little than too much!).

Pour this over the chicken, ensuring all the top ones are covered, then turn them a little to coat, but make sure the onions stay on the bottom.

Switch the slow-cooker to high, and cook for three hours until simmering and the chicken looks cooked, then switch to low or medium for another 4-6 hours or more.

Note: smaller quantities can be cooked on the stove-top in a large saucepan. The onions need to be softened in a little olive oil first if you do this.
