are you looking for another way to make chicken in a slow-cooker? if so, i found this recipe, which was quite delicious. the method was published by Kraft foods many years ago. this recipe will take less than 6 hours to prepare and cook.
i cooked the chicken for five hours and it was very tender and perfect for dinner. the published recipe calls for 8 boneless and skinless chicken thighs, but i used 4 chicken thighs with bones. i would adjust the cooking time if more meat was being used. the printed recipe says cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. i think that would work for the larger quantity of meat.
to make this recipe:
toss the chicken with about 3 tablespoons of flour and place in the slow cooker.
add 1/3 to 1/2 cup of orange marmalade. i used apricot jam, and it was equally tasty.
add 1/3 cup of barbecue sauce to the slow cooker. next add 1 to 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. season with fresh ginger if desired. i also added one sliced white onion for added flavor.
stir and cover with the lid. cook on high for up to 5 hours or as suggested above for larger amounts of chicken. i served the orange chicken with white rice and fresh steamed broccoli.
