Meeeee!! Hopefully you do too, because yesterday while my boyfriend was busy being sick and lazy, I created a new slow cooker recipe...
Sweet Clementine Chicken!
Yesterday I thought - Why not clementines for dinner? With chicken? In the slow cooker?
Feel free to use oranges instead of clementines - also I bet adding some zest would be fantastic. Unfortunately, my cheese grater didn't work too well as a zester on these clementines.
- 3-4 chicken breasts or 6-8 chicken breast tenderloins (I used frozen chicken because it's the bomb.)
- 1 cup honey
- juice of 3 clementines
- 21/2 Tablespoons soy sauce (I used low-sodium.)
- 1/2 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Sriracha (Use more if you'd like it spicy!)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- pinch of black pepper
- 1 head of broccoli (or more) - chopped into florets
- sesame seeds (optional)
- Combine honey, clementine juice, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, Sriracha, salt, and pepper in a medium-sized bowl. Test to see if you're OK with it's sweetness, spiciness, etc.
- Spray bottom of slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place chicken in slow cooker.
- Pour sauce over chicken. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the top, if interested. I was interested.
- Cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 7-8. If you're using frozen chicken, you MUST cook on high. I checked my chicken after about 21/2 hours on high and it was done, but I'm pretty sure my slow cooker is freakishly fast.
- Once your chicken is done cooking, reach in there with 2 forks to shred or cut the chicken into bite-size chunks. Then, add broccoli and cook on low for about 20-30 minutes. Just enough time to make some coconut rice! Enjoy!
