2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
3 tablespoons mirin (sweet sake wine), dry sherry or gin

Trim tips off wings and pull skin off other chicken parts.

Mix ginger, garlic, soy sauce, honey and spirits. Dip each piece of chicken in sauce. Place chicken in crock and pour remaining sauce over it.
