Slow Cooker Honey Orange Chicken
Slow Cooker Honey Orange Chicken is an easy way to make your favorite take-out orange chicken at home. This chicken is so tender and delicious.
Servings: 4 -6
- 2 lbs. boneless-skinless chicken thighs
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons orange marmalade plus more to taste if you desire
- 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil if you love sesame oil, feel free to add a few more teaspoons.
- 1 teaspoon sriracha
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
Add chicken to the slow cooker. Pour sauce ingredients on top and stir together.
Cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 1 1/2 -2 hours.
Once the chicken is cooked, removed from the slow cooker and chop into bite size pieces. Place in a serving dish.
Pour sauce into a pot on the stove and whisk in the cornstarch. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Taste and add additional orange marmalade if you want more orange flavor.
Stir sauce and chicken together until coated, then serve over rice or with fresh vegetables.
Add rice and steamed vegetables as side dishes. I love to add broccoli, peppers, or carrots.
You can also garnish it with sliced green onions, sesame seeds, and a little more sesame oil if you like.
