Chinese cooks typically stir-fry shrimp in their shells for a more flavorful dish. You can do the same, but we recommend first removing the tiny legs. While rice may seem like the logical side, braised greens, such as chard or spinach, are actually just as traditional. Click here to visit the new home of KitchenDaily!
If you prefer, swap in either bone-in chicken thighs, or drumsticks for the whole leg. If you'd rather use chicken breasts, plan on considerably less time in the slow cooker or the breast meat will be dry. It's easy to pull the skin off the legs, by grabbing it with a paper towel. The skin was removed to cut down on the amount of fat in the dish, but if you like, you can leave it on-just skim any fat from the surface of the sauce before serving.
