    TIP: If using a slow cooker, heat the searing bowl, add oil and cook of the chicken (alternatively, use a fry pan for the first step). Remove the chicken. Add the remaining oil and sauté the onion and garlic.  Add all remaining ingredients including the chicken to the slow cooker bowl and set on the HIGH setting. Allow to cook for 6 hours, stirring every few hours. From here follow steps 7 onwards.
