I found the recipe below on A Year of Slow Cooking & I modified it till I was happy with it. (I don't know if I have ever followed a recipe to a tee!)
This recipe is easy on the budget because it calls for a cheap part of the chicken--thighs. I found an awesome deal on some thighs at our local grocery store for only $0.69 a pound! If you use about 3 lbs in this recipe that is only a little over $2 for the bulk off your meal!
- 8-10 chicken thighs
- 11 oz (or close) jar of orange marmalade (you can substitute for apricot preserves if you like)
- 2 tsps chopped onions
- 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
- 2 Tbsp soy sauce
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 1/4-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
Place chicken in crock-pot. I usually just use frozen thighs because I'm one of those people that always forgets to defrost meat.
In a bowl mix together the remaining ingredients and pour over the top of chicken.
Cover & cook on low for 6-8 hours. Easy peasy, right? You can pair this chicken up with veggies, rice, lo mein noodles, the options are endless! I paired ours with stir fried rice. (look for that recipe soon!) I fed my family of 6 & even had leftovers for the next day!
