I love slow cookers any time of year, because who wants to turn on a hot stove in the summer, and who doesn’t want to come home to a ready-to-serve hot meal in the winter! And we are all on-the-go every time in between, so time savers are a life saver.
This recipe is super simple, just combine a few ingredients with your raw or even frozen chicken, and come home to delightfully fragrant house ad a sweet and salty entree. With asian flavors like ginger and soy pairing perfectly with sweet honey, orange, and peaches, this is a simple dinner the whole family will love. You can even cook the rice a day or two before for a completely fuss-free meal.
- 4-5 frozen or thawed chicken breasts
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup peach marmalade (or 1 whole peach)
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 2 inch piece fresh ginger
- 2 tsp garlic salt
Step 1: Put the chicken in the bottom of a slow cooker, and pour the liquids on top. Drizzle on the honey & marmalade, and sprinkle in the spices (to taste).
Step 2: Peel the ginger, and dice into slivers. Put those on top of the chicken breasts.
Step 3: Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 2-3 hours.
Place a cup or so of rice on a plate, add the chicken, and pour on some of the extra sauce. Dinner’s done!
Other optional toppings you could use: diced fresh herbs like chives or green onion, orange slivers, almonds, crushed ramen noodles, basil, jalapeno slices….
