How to Make It
1. Rub chicken with oil. Sprinkle with salt, and place in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add stock, syrup, sambal oelek, and soy sauce. Cover and cook on low until chicken is tender and done, 31/2 to 4 hours.
2. Preheat broiler with oven rack 5 inches from heat. Remove chicken from cooker; place on a baking sheet, and brush with cooking liquid from cooker. Broil until browned, about 5 minutes, turning halfway through broil time.
3. Transfer cooking liquid to a saucepan, and heat over high. Stir together 1 tablespoon water and cornstarch; stir into cooking liquid in pan, and bring to a boil. Boil, stirring often, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Brush sauce over chicken before serving.
