3 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs

3 tablespoons cornstarch

¼ cup sliced green onions (or more to taste)

¼ cup ketchup

3 tablespoons cider vinegar

2. Remove chicken and chop into bite sized pieces and cover to keep warm.  Meanwhile, combine 3 tablespoons water with cornstarch. Turn slow cooker up to high. Whisk cornstarch slurry into the sauce.
