  • 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.
