Slow cookers are ideal for busy cooks
who want to serve comforting favorites like savory pot roast and stew for
dinner, even when time is at a premium.
Crock Pot Honey Orange Chicken
8 chicken thighs; frozen
1/2 C. honey
1 C. orange juice
2 C. chicken broth
1/2 t. salt
1 T. dry mustard
1 -2 t. fresh garlic root, minced
1 -2 t. fresh garlic, minced
2 t. soy sauce
1 10 oz. package frozen broccoli flowerets, optional thawed
2 T. cornstarch mixed with 1/4 C. water
Put the frozen chicken in the crockpot right out of the freezer. Whisk all other
ingredients (except cooked rice, broccoli, cornstarch and water) together and
pour over the chicken. Turn the crockpot on low and cook for four to five hours.
If you desire, you may top with frozen broccoli flowerets about one hour before
the chicken is finished.
Before serving, remove the chicken and broccoli and stir in the cornstarch
mixture. Put crockpot on high until the broth bubbles and thickens.
