Meanwhile, combine 3 tablespoons water with cornstarch.

This recipe is best made with regular (not light) soy sauce. The sauce can also be thickened on the stove top. Create the slurry as above and whisk over medium heat until thickened. Return to slow cooker with chicken and stir in green onions.
